TCP Tuesday 150--A Sketch from Leigh

Well, it's been a busy week here in Lilesland. The girls have been on Spring Break all week. I thought I'd get mucho stamping done, but I just didn't have time--we went to the Rainforest Cafe, to the mall, the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens and had a picnic with Eric, and then yesterday went and saw the movie, Tangled--whew! So this card sat on my desk half made for three days. Until now.

This one is for Leigh's TCP Tuesday #150 Sketch Challenge from The Cat's Pajamas. At first, I wasn't sure if I was going to like the sketch as I'm not an angle-y kind of girl. BUT, the Pennant CutUps dies made it so easy and now I truly think this is one of my favorite Cat's Pajamas cards ever! Since Poochie's carrot car from the fun spring set closely resembled the triangles, I thought it was a fitting set to use, not to mention the fact that I am SO ready for spring! Recognize any other CutUps dies on here besides the Pennants? I've got the Stamp Trio and the Big Pinking Border CutUps as well taking leading roles on this card.

Here's the sketch. I chose to use the "sideways" version. I hope ya'll get more stamping time in than me and will be able to play along with us. There are prizes at stake, people! Check out ALMA'S blog for all the info on how to get noticed HERE.

SUSIE Q-TIP: After coloring Poochie's sweater, I realized my pink was too dark. So since this was a SMALL area, I just went over it with my Copic Blender and pulled a bunch of the color out. Now it's perfectly light pink, like I wanted it in the first place. If you were to try this in a large area of coloring, it may look blotchy, so be careful.

(Supply list to come later)
