TCPTUES108--You Sick Thing

Well, May is fastly trucking right along, isn't it? I can't believe we are almost to the halfway point in the year! I wish we could slow the time down just a bit. Here's one way to do it: Now close your eyes and meditate on that thought. Breathe deeply (into a plastic bag) and picture yourself in a land far, far away...Oh never mind, that only works on TV. Let's get back to reality here, people! Today is Tuesday and time for The Cat's Pajamas (and ME) to bring you the weekly TCP Tuesday Challenge! I'm your Hipster Hostess with the Mostess and that means it's time for a stamp challenge. While at the hospital with Eric, I was thinking of what stamps to use. All that kept crossing my mind was this set, "You Sick Thing", so let's dust it off and make a card or project with it for this week's challenge (you can use any stamps from this set).

For my card here, I thought I'd get a little swanky with it and mix two completely different patterned papers, use a fun color combo with black for accents, use my new Apron Lace punch and a spiral punch, and then set it all at an angle on a card base. How's that? I think it works! It's a perfect picture of Eric, who had been stuck in a hospital bed for 12 days. He got to come home yesterday and is doing swell!

We'd love to see what YOU come up with on this week's challenge...
Here's what ya'll need to know to play along (and we hope you do!):
1. 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!
2. Link your creation to the slide show/guest book on Alma's blog so that we can all see it!
3. TCP stamps are not required (unless the challenge is a STAMP challenge), but are of course highly recommended.
4. If you'd like to also upload your piece to Splitcoast Stampers, use the keyword TCPTUES108 for this week.

SUSIE Q-TIP: Make your sentiment banner wavy by glueing one side down and placing a foam booster "ready to stick" under the other end. Put your finger under the middle for a slight bend and stick the foam booster down.
