TCP Tuesday 131--Pink Embellishments Galore

Well, here we are--Tuesday already! That means it's time for TCP Tuesday from The Cat's Pajamas! We are having a fun little blog hop among the Cat Pack as a cherry on top of the fabulous customer blog hop that ended yesterday. Our hop is being combined with Amy's supply challenge (to use Pink embellishments), so her blog is where ya'll want to start so you don't miss anything luscious. If you've already been traveling down that path, you probably made it here from our newest sweetest Cat Pack member, Julie Masse's blog.

Ok, now that we've gotten our navigational bearings, let's move onto my card! Veer to the left and you'll see it up there! Don't ya'll just love this bunny? This one is the perfect birthday image to me and I grab for it a lot. It's called Forget About the Cake, so when I sat down to make this card and use pink embellishments, I knew this one would make my life easy and be a perfect fit for the challenge. My pink loopy-ribbon-button-flower-embellishment-thingy is tied onto the card with some Lemon Divine Twine, and it covers a border made with my Big Pinking Border CutUps Die.

Ok, well I think that's all for me today. I've got some stamping to get to for tonight (I'll have another post later this evening). We hope you get to play in this week's TCP Tuesday (keyword TCPTUES131 for uploading to online galleries) because don't forget that there's $25 in Cat Cash at stake! C'mon, ya'll have all month to play!! You can get all the details over on Alma's blog (she's the last stop on the hop), and also see if you are the big winner from the Customer Blog Hop!

SUSIE Q-TIP: Sometimes it seeems like I only have a couple of ways to add a sentiment to a card in my bag of tricks. As they are fun (circles and flags), I like "different" every once in a while. Try using a sliver of a Nestabilities shape coming off the edge of a panel (either pointing up or coming down from underneath) like I did here. Different is good.
