March Blog Hop AND TCP Tuesday

Hi Everyone! It's the day AFTER our March Release and our release was one of my favorite, yet. And once you've seen all the cuteness The Cat Pack has done, I'm sure you will agree.

Our Hostess with the Mostess for this TCP Tuesday Challenge/Blog Hop is Julie. So, to start it off right, start at the beginning and make your way here. If you came from Tracy's Blog, you are at the end of the hop. Thank you to Jenny Peterson, who joined us in our Sneaky Peeks, Pajamas Party and this release.

Julie's challenge is to make a shaped card. We do so many square and rectangle cards, it's fun to do something different.

Here is my take on the challenge. I made a gift card. I used the Pennants CutUps for the base of the card and What a Blast for the image. I used the NEW Grass CutUps and the Rosettes CutUps for the scalloped circle behind PJ. And I used the notched border that comes with the Rosettes CutUps for the little flag. This card was so easy to put together.

This was such a fun challenge. Check out the other members of the Cat Pack and then play along. Don't forget to upload your card to the slideshow to be eligible to win some Cat's Cash.

Here are the Deets.

1. Each Tuesday we will give you a challenge.
2. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
3. Add your entry to the guestbook or upload to the
SCS Gallery, using the keyword TCPTUES152 for this week's challenge.
4. TCP stamps are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a
specific stamp}
5. There will be one randomly chosen weekly winner, announced on Tuesdays.
6. There will be one winner, The Swanky Stamper, announced the 1st of each month. They will win several sets from an upcoming release and get to play along with us at our Pajama Party and Blog Hop.

AND the Weekly Winner for last week?

Remember, our Weekly Winner is picked randomly from all the entries of our TCP Tuesday contests.
This week's Weekly Winner is Barbara from Fort Wayne. Her entry? Argh! It be a definite winner. She uses our
Argh! Piratey set to create this card that shivers my timbers.

Congrats Barbara! You've won $10 in Cat's Cash. Contact me for the deets.

What a sweet little gift card enclosure! So much depth and dimension with all the fabby die cuts! Can't wait to get my order (although now I'm regretting not getting the little Puddle girl/boy and the birdhouse stamp set and die with my order last night). Darned budget!


Tracy said...

Great card! Love the pennant shape. The blog hop was a lot of fun. It was interesting to see how everyone interpreted the "shaped card" challenge.

i LOVE this one, Alma, the pennant is a great shape for a card, and the toothpick is a fun touch. The colors you used are SO pretty, too! :) CANNOT WAIT to get my new stamps and start playing! Have a great day.
