Blog Hop, TCP Tuesday, Weekly Winner, Whew!

Hi all! It's release day and I'm so excited about our Winter Collection, I am just bursting. If you've been following The Cat Pack and me during Sneaky Peek Week you know that TODAY is the first day that you can buy any of the goodies that we previewed.

And, as our tradition, we are mixing in our TCP Tuesday Challenge with a fantab-U-lous blog hop!

Julie, the Hostess with the Mostess, kicks off today's events with a wonderful Technique/Supply challenge. Her challenge is to create SHINY Embellishments. If you, come here from Nancy's blog, you have reached the end of your journey. If not, start at Julie's blog and visit each blog on the hop. I guarantee it's worth it.

Here is my card for the Blog Hop. As you know, I've been on a quest to make Holiday cards that I can actually mail without too much fuss or extra postage. So I've been restricting myself to light embellies and using ribbons and bows that don't bulk up the card.

I used our Snowflake Lace Paper CutUps (say that 10 times fast). I love this die because, not only does it cut a pretty doily type shape, but it cuts a slew of snowflakes that I can use for embellies. I cut two of these beauties from silver paper, shiny side facing the cutting mat to get a textured look, and used the the largest clear circle from Jody's Shaker Set as a base. Then it was just a matter of sticking the snowflakes on the adhesive.

I stamped "Joy" from J*lly H*liday" and ran it through an embossing folder. After I put the card together I pleated a little of our new "Tinsel" seam binding and added that, and called it a day. Weighing in at under one ounce, I couldn't be happier.

And I want to make you happy, too. With Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you all are probably tapped out and could use a little help getting the goodies we've been showing all week, right?

So as The Cat's Pajamas gift to you, we are offering you 15% off everything in the store, INCLUDING the already discounted KittyKat Pack and Poochie Pack. Just enter HAPPY15 in the promo code box when you check out. But, you better hurry, the offer ends on November 30, and it's our last "sale" of the year.
