TCPTUES94--A Great Sketch from Leigh

Well, Oscar seems to be adjusting well to his new home. My mom works, so yesterday was his first day alone without her. He was so happy to see her walk in when she got home, that he went straight to the back door to say, "please let me out". They immediately went outside, he did his business, and when they came back in, my mom gave him a new toy and all was right with the world, especially according to Oscar. I sure am going to have a high standard if there ever comes a day that we get another dog. Oscar rules!

Anyway, I'm sure I'll stop gushing about Oscar soon, but thanks for bearing with me. I just can't help it! So on to why ya'll are really here. I'ts TCP TUESDAY and we have a great challenge for you from The Cat's Pajamas! Leigh is our superstar Hostess with the Mostess and has come up with a great sketch that you will want to use over and over. Today, I've used the "muffins" (cupcakes?) and a sentiment that are included in the Loving Mew set which is part of the Kitty Kat Pack this month. I actually did a little masking for this card (Hi Joanne), but it was nothing compared to Leigh, the masking queen! I did have to cut out two cupcakes from my masking paper, though. (Want an easy tutorial? Let me know.) And see that awesome ribbon? It's also available from The Cat's Pajamas in several fun colors.

For now, though, here's a little run down on how you can play with us in the challenge for your chance to win $25 in Cat Cash:

--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 (unless the challenge is a STAMP challenge from Susan when specific stamps are required), but are of course highly recommended.
--If you'd like to also upload your piece to Splitcoast Stampers, use the keyword TCPTUES94 for this week.

  1. I got confused for a second and thought the new baby was Nick and then I realized this wasn't the baby mommy's blog.
    Cute card, I love the wide ribbon, I just can't seen to get myself to use the stuff I already have (as if that ever stopped me from buying something before).

  2. this is such a cute card! nice job!

  3. Hi Susie, I like your rather eclectic card - really lovely!

  4. don't apologize for the "gushing" about Oscar. I gush about my brother sometimes, too! ;-)

  5. This is super cute!
    I was popping in on PTI's gallery & saw that it's your birthday-
