The Cat's Pajamas Release Blog Hop, TCP Tuesday Style

Well, I heard ya'll kind of liked the new stuff available from The Cat's Pajamas starting NOW! All eight stamp sets and two CutUps dies make life complete (for the time being, right?). We are celebrating this first release of 2011 with a BLOG HOP that we got all excited over and combined with this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge #142. Ya'll are about halfway through the hop if you started from the beginning. And yes, you should start at the beginning over on Sony's blog, since she IS the Hipster Hostess with the Mostess and has come up with a FABBY color challenge! You'll want to be sure and get all the details on how to play along on her blog as well....Don't be sheepish!

Here's what I've got card features that Sheepish guy and his girlfriend having a sweet and woolly moment together. He's the black sheep of the family and she's in love with that rebel! This set is called Ewe Complete Me. Not only perfect for Valentine's Day, but also useful for Father's day, an anniversary card, or just to say I Love You. I made a little Ribbon-Button-Loopy-Embellishment thingy to complete the card and layered the smallest heart from the Heart Trio CutUps die. I can tell ya'll right now--that one is a MUST-HAVE! Here's what it looks like along with the Ewe Complete Me set.

Ok, so that's all from me. Follow each other like a flock of sheep on over to the next meadow--Julie's blog for her "baaaa-utiful" creation!

SUSIE Q-TIP: I don't know about ya'll, but my cool gray Copic markers (C1, C3, C5, C7 and C9) are very juicy. I have to really watch how much saturation I get with them or they will bleed, even with the "right" paper and ink. While coloring the "black" sheep, I used a light hand and barely touched the inside edges of where I was coloring. That gave a little room for "spreadage". Then where it didn't spread, I just went back and filled it in lightly with my darkest color.
