Blog Hop & TCP Tuesday AND the Weekly Winner

Happy Release Day! Or should I say Hoppy Release Day! If you've been enjoying all the Sneaky Peeks in the last week, then you know that today is the first day that they are available on our website.

And that means that today is a fabulous Blog Hop. And since today is also Tuesday, that means it's TCP Tuesday. (We are busy, busy gals). So if you've come from the oh-so terrific Nancy, then sadly, you've reached the end of the blog hop.

Julie, who is also our Hostess with the Mostess, is challenging you to use embossing. Dry embossing, heat embossing. Anything that raises up and gives you dimension. Start at Julie's blog and make your way back here. I can pretty much guarantee it will be worth it. And, you'll get another peek at our NEW January Collection.

For this challenge I decided to do both dry and heat embossing. I used Versafine Spanish Moss and Judikins Gold Detail embossing powder for the bunny and word from the Sugar, Sugar stamp set and used an embossing folder for the sky.

And then, I went to town. I pulled out my very favorite Cloud Border CutUps and the brand new Heart Rosette and the Egg from the Eggs in a Basket CutUps. I had so much fun nestling the eggs in the clouds. And that Heart Rosette. I love it looks just as pretty by itself, like I've shown here, as it does when I put two of them together to form a rosette.

Want to play along? You could win $10 in 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 Inlinkz Gallery or upload to the SCS Gallery, using the keyword TCPTUES192 for this week's challenge.

5. There will be one randomly chosen weekly winner, announced on Tuesdays who will win a Gift Voucher for use on The Cat's Pajamas website.
6. There will be one winner, The Swanky Stamper, announced the 1st of each month. They will win a selection from an upcoming release and get to play along with us at our Pajama Party and Blog Hop.

Thanks for another fun blog hop! Maybe it's just me, but I actually prefer the rosette flat. I think it makes a very pretty mat for your image.
