It's TCP Tuesday!

Well, after the kids being off for a week, we are trying to get back into the groove of our regularly scheduled programming. Oh and speaking of programming, BOLT comes out today. This is such a cute cute cute movie, ya'll just have to see it! We will be bringing it home to live with us very soon. Anyway, today is another TCP Tuesday brought to you by The Cat's Pajamas! My madly talented friend, Leigh O'Brien is coming at us with the last of her wonderful sketches and will be passing the torch onto Carole (another genius sketch artist) for the weeks to come. Sometimes you just need a break, right? I worked on this card until the wee hours of the night last night, but once again had to tear it apart and start all over this morning. What is UP with that here lately? So this is how it finally turned out and I love love love it (aside from the fact that the main panel is enormously crooked!)!

YOU are cordially invited to play along and here's all the juicy details:

1. Each a week one of The Cat’s Pajamas DT members will host a challenge.
2. The challenges will vary {stamp, color, theme, sketch, etc.}
3. You will have until {this} Saturday night to complete the challenge.
4. Link your project on this week’s hostess’ challenge announcement. This week you will link your project HERE on Leigh's blog.
5. TCP stamps are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp}
6. There will be one winner each month. They will be deemed that month’s Swankiest Stamper and get $25 in Cat’s Cash {money to spend on the TCP site!}.
7. When uploading to SCS, please use the keyword TCPTUES51 for this challenge.
8. Alma will post the entries from the week the following Monday on her blog.
9. The newly crowned Swanky Stamper will be announced on the First of the Month and have his/her winning entry posted on The Cat’s Pajamas website where he/she will reign for the entire month!

SUSIE Q-TIP: Be careful when crafting and talking on the phone at the same time. This may cause you to be impaired and adhere things crookedly. The glue I use dries super fast and does not allow for hardly any mistakes unless you correct them right away. Apparently talking about the boring stuff (like laundry and cleaning) makes you lose your concentration.

Stamps: Havin' a Pow Wow (The Cat's Pajamas)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red (SU!), Chloe's Closet (MM), My Mind's Eye
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch, Circle Punches, Stitched Zig Zag Punch (EK), Cinnamon Stickles, Copic Markers, Red Glitter, CM Glue Pen, Silver Rhinestones, Sparkly Flower, Red Satin Ribbon, Dimensionals

  4. Oh how FUN!!! LOVE this! The bright colors are so perfect for this type of's the saying! That cracks me up ☺ Have a great week Sus!!

  5. Susie -- I love this card. I was drawn to the all the bright colors right away. All us native Americans (I'm Choctaw) really goove out ont he bright colors. I just may have to join in on the fun of these sketches. I guess I'd better get some TCP stamps first, though!!

  6. Hi , this post is WAY LATE, but I just had to comment on your card as soon as I saw it. TOO CUTE! my 8 yr old niece and I love to make tents (when she stays at my house,) and pretend that they're teepees. she loves playing "Indians" I am going to have to buy this set. It will be a great embellishment for my scrapbook pages featuring "the little indian" and our "Teepees"

    Have a good one!!
