And now a word from our sponsor

Ah! And now onto TCP Tuesday.

We've changed the format of the TCP Tuesday Challenges. So many people have said that a week is not enough time to get the challenge done. Sometimes, there needs to be a bit of "stewing" before you can actually sit down and create. I hear ya. So, instead of a week-long challenge, our challenges are now a month-long. Just post your entry to the link button on the right to enter.

Now this month's challenge. Everything old is new, again.

This challenge is a supply challenge. Kinda. I am challenging you to bring out your existing TCP stamps and dies and use them in a new and creative way. Maybe there is a Holiday set that would make a perfect Valentine's card. A die that could be used in a different way than I designed it.

If there is a TCP stamp set or die that has been challenging you so much that you haven't used it, I'm challenging you to pull it out and use it!

Like Jen del Muro's twist on the Gift Card Envie and our Brand New Toppers. A great way to get a different look from a classic. That Jen is so clever. Here's a peek. Now go and see how she finished it.

Or Kimberly Gajewski's sweet Valentine banner and card using our Heart Trio CutUps.

AND, she created amazing card with the leftovers. I'm loving her tone on tone card. It's a stealer. Er, I mean keeper.

Lori Tecler's card makes me sing a little tune with her twist on our Easy Rosette. A classic go to card.

Noelle McAdams' first week as a Cat Packer! She pulls out all the stops by turning our Rolled Nest CutUps into a sweet flower embellishment for a scrapbook page. So cute! Here is a closeup.

And hold on to your hats, Wendy McGaffey creates a fantabulous SNOWMAN with our Pom Pom CutUps! You have to see it to believe it. Amazing! Go take a look! Here is what she started with.

Now, don't you think it's time for you to play along?
