Retro TCP Tuesday Challenge

Well, ya'll must think I have issues and don't know what day is what around here. I promise there is a method to my madness. I just can't remember what it is. Haha! Just kidding! So yes, this post is all about my TCP TUESDAY Challenge for The Cat's Pajamas and here it is THURSDAY already! It's all good.

This week, we are kickin' it old school--Alma is the Hostess with the Mostess this week and she's issued a RETRO Challenge. She's challenging all of us (and ya'll) to go back through the PAST challenges and make a card using one of them. You can easily find all 146 of them in the archives section on Alma's blog HERE.

I chose to use one of my older stamp challenges from last year--Bottom's Up!, TCP Tuesday 123--to use any beverage stamp from The Cat's Pajamas. Here I've used Coffee, Tea or Meow. I think the sentiment has got to be one of my all time favorites from Alma--and it's TRUE! On my card, ya'll can see I also used one of those fancy CutUps dies, Flower Buttons. Here's what they look like:

Ok, now it's your turn to pick a challenge and PLAY. Alma has all the details on how to do it and what's at stake over on her blog HERE.

SUSIE Q-TIP: Silver brads, silver brads, it's stamping time in the craft room! (To be sung to the tune of Silver Bells.) Silver brads always add just the right touch and can shine up almost any project. I get the heeby-jeebies when I start to run low on them.

Stamps: Coffe, Tea or Meow (The Cat's Pajamas)
Paper: Vintage Cream, Pure Poppy, Lemon Tart, Simply Chartreuse (PTI), Nana's Nursery (DCWV)
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Flower Buttons CutUps (TCP), Scallop Square Nestabilities, Flowers Embossing Folder, Button, Green Apple Divine Twine (TCP), Silver Brads, Glue Dots, Jody Boosters
Finished Size: A2


  1. Aw, I MISSED the "bottom's up!" challenge when I was browsing thru them all! What a cute idea! I might have to make another card! Your card is super-adorable, Susie!

  2. Such a pretty card, fab colours and paper piecing
