Well, I knew that when Joanne (our Hostess with the Mostess) posted yesterday's color challenge for TCP Tuesday from The Cat's Pajamas, that I HAD to play! Some of my favorite color combos involve any shade of pink and brown, so that was all I needed to know. Here's the yummy combination she chose for us to use for this week--Kraft, Light Pink and Vanilla--totally neopolitan ice cream, right?

And here's my card! I found a layout I just loved on Amy's blog and flipped it on it's side and tweaked it just a bit to be perfect for the penguins from the TCP set, Penguin Christmas. Then to honor Joanne, it had to have a big ol' bow! I added a little TCP glitter to the button for some sparkly-sparkly.

Oh and I have to give a little cheap shameless plug for Jen--check out her TCP Project of the Month HERE I have seen this in person (of course!), and it's totally a "WOW" project! AND, the good news is that The Cat's Pajamas now carries the clear boxes she used to make it for cheap cheap cheap!! Alma's also added some delicious new ribbon to her site as well!

We'd love for ya'll to play along! Here's what you need to know:

--All challenge entries will go into TCP's monthly Swanky Stamper contest. This means $25 in Cat Cash for the winner to spend on new stamps from The Cat's Pajamas!
--Link your creation to the slide show/guest book on Alma's blog so that we can all see it!
--TCP stamps are not required, but are of course highly recommended.
--If you'd like to also upload your piece to Splitcoast Stampers, use the keyword TCPTUES87 for this week.

SUSIE Q-TIP: Do NOT EVER let yourself run out of silver brads. Especially after you've already ticket corner punched and placed holes where you need them to go and then discover you only have 3 left and you need 8. You WILL have whiney kids when you pick them up from school and tell them you have to make a run to Hobby Lobby before going home for their afternoon snack and they are about to pee in their pants because they didn't go before they left the classroom.

  1. I adore this!! OMG howling laughing about the brads. My kids are the SAME way, give me such grief about any errands I have to do. As if they don't come home from school and absolutely "languish" in their boredom. Sigh.

    Gorgeous card my friend!
