TCP Tuesday 145--How Now Brown Whale

Well, not only is TCP Tuesday from The Cat's Pajamas upon us, but also today, we are introducing a new team member of the Cat Pack! TORI WILD is joining us. I'm excited to get to know her a little more and be on a design team with her again (again? or did she join a team I had just exited? Oh, I can't remember, all I know is that she is WILDLY talented and I think ya'll will agree.).
Jen is our Hipster Hostess with the Mostess this week and she has a fabulous inpiration challenge for us to take in and be moved by. I may have been a little too moved by the polkadot aspect of the challenge, but I just love that paper and could not resist making my little whale from A Whale of a Time dotty! I used some of those fabulous CutUps dies on this as well--the Wave and Flower Buttons, but left off a lot of layering since the card was so busy as is. I think my favorite part is him holding his little flag saying, "Sea You!". Gotta go for now--Sea You Later, friends!

Be sure to check out the full list of us Cat Packers sharing our TCP Tuesday creations with ya'll over on Alma's BLOG!

Now, TCP Tuesday is FOR YOU to get down to business and show off your talent, along with trying to win some Cat Cash and the title of Swanky Stamper for next month. Here's the 411 on how to play:

1. Each a week one of The Cat’s Pajamas DT members will host a challenge.
2. The challenges will vary {stamp, technique/supply, color, theme, sketch, etc.}
3. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
4. Link to your post using the Inlinkz button on ALMA'S blog post HERE.
5. TCP stamps are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a TCP stamps.}
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 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: Double your Divine Twine for cute "double" bows going through your buttonholes of handmade embellishments. Then I like to use "not as sharp" scissors to trim the ends for a scruffier look.
