A TCP Tuesday New Release Blog Hop--It's Tutu Much!

Well, we're posting a little early (it's Monday night) for TCP Tuesday to give ya'll a head start to play and also because we are just so darn excited to show off the FIVE newest stamp sets being released tomorrow, Tuesday the 13th, from The Cat's Pajamas! Toni is our Hipster Hostess with the Mostess, so as always she'll have all the fabulous details about how to play for your chance at $25 in Cat Cash and an opportunity to be next month's SWANKY stamper.

In order to celebrate the new releases in style, we've put together a little Blog Hop--they're all the rage these days, ya'll know! So you should have come here from the wonderfully talented Sony Cristoph's blog, Stampin It Up in LA, but if you just popped in, you'll be remiss if you don't start at the beginning over on Toni's blog, Moved to the Mountains (remember, she's the TCP Tuesday Hostess, too) so ya'll don't miss a thing. Go on, I'll wait....Noo-ne-noo.

Ok, you're back! Hola! I am feeling generous, so I'm showing ya'll two cards today. The first one uses the new Salud! set which is super fun with those pesky penguins. Cheers! The second one is called Tutu Much (sketch courtesy of Karen's Sweet Sunday) and features a new little adorable bunny character and her babies. I think it's my favorite set from the entire release. Ya'll are going to LOVE IT!

Ok, well it's about time to head em' up and move em' out so ya'll can see more TCP goodness. Leigh's blog, Sunflower Studio is your next stop on the hop. No tellin' what kind of peskiness she's been up to! Thanks for hoppin' and I'll be back soon with more and an Eric update!

SUSIE Q-TIP: I almost forgot to tell ya'll about that RAD new twine I'm using on my card (the bunny one). It's also making it's debut with TCP tomorrow. It's like a thick thread, but not as thick as hemp. It's strong and not so furry like some I've used in the past. This twine is actually linen embroidery thread, so it is twisted tightly and keeps it’s shape better than regular twine and it ties perfectly and stays tight (I wish I could have--What? I'm talking about my sagging skin!). It is a little over 13 yds and will sell for $2.75 for the roll. I am COMPLETELY SURE ya'll will LOVE it!
