TCP123--Bottom's Up!

Well, since I'm the Hostess with the Mostess today, I have a fun stamp challenge for you for this week's TCP Tuesday from The Cat's Pajamas. I apparently was feeling a bit thirsty when I decided the challenge would be to use any beverage stamp from The Cat's Pajamas.

Go ahead and open the fridge and see what's in ther to quench your thirst (and play along)--Any of the new "tea" sets, A Beary Good Year has a coffee cup, and those penguins are playing some drinking games as well in the Salud set and the Hola Tequila set.

I went with making some hot chocolate and using A Cuppa with PJ serving up "something to warm you". I kept this card fairly simple (after going all out with my last one!) and used an easy layout and some of my favorite papers again from Girls' Paperie. Those red polkadots are supercali-fragilistic-expialidocious! They make me so happy!

Anyway, I hope ya'll get to play along. Grab a little drink-i-poo and stamp something refreshing! Here's the details:

1. Each a week one of The Cat Pack will host a challenge.
2. The challenges will vary {stamp, technique, color, theme, sketch, etc.}
3. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
4. Post your TCPTUES123 design using the Inlink Button at the bottom of Alma's post. Your design must be linked and visible to Alma's post to be considered.
5. TCP stamps are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp}--like TODAY
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. Only designs posted to Alma's blog post will be considered for the Swanky Stamper.
8. 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: Don't forget about that cork! Using it this week will be especially cute to carry out the "beverage" theme.

  1. Another fantastic card Susan!!!! I just ordered this set and I can't wait to get it. Keeping my fingers crossed it will be in time to play along with the challenge.


  2. Perfect drinker... I say it's coffee, although might have to use my Salud seeing as I was eating Mexican last night!! Hope things are going well with Eric and the girls are doing okay!!
