Pajama Party Blog Hop!

Well, it's release time for The Cat's Pajamas!! We are having an "after (pajama) party" hop and combining it with this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge! If you made it here from Joanne's blog, you're on the right track. If not, you need to stop what you're doing and head over to Amy's blog and start at the beginning. You see, Amy is our Hostess with the Mostess ...

...and she is dishing up some PLAID for this week's supply challenge!That's right, the challenge is to incorporate plaid into your card. It can be plaid paper or some kind of technique you can muster up to make plaid, plaid buttons, plaid ribbon--ya'll get the idea! So here, I used the new set, Just Chillin' with the ice fishing bunny. I used some plaid paper and then also drew in some plaid on the sleeves of his parka with a darker Copic marker and my white gel pen. Now he's stylin' AND freezin'!

Next up on the hop is the fabulously talented, Beate. (I secretly want to be her when I grow up!)

SUSIE Q-TIP: I wanted the larger paper button, which I used the Buttons Cut-Ups TCP die for, to be glossy and sparkly. So I cut it out, put a little glitter on it and then coated it with Glossy Accents. I got in a hurry for it to dry and accidently cracked it before it was done. I then decided to heat it up with my heat tool to "seal the crack" and speed up the drying process. NO CAN DO. It proceeded to bubble up and smoke!! (and stink.) That embellishment accident then became a paper button adorned with a clear plastic button on top. I'm done talking about it.
