TCP Tuesday 158--Again

Well, I love how Blogger decided to hatchet my TCP Tuesday post from earlier this week and never put it back like they said they would. I pay for my domain (.com) name, but still handle my blog through Blogger, so maybe that has something to do with it. I looked in my drafts folder and it's mostly there, it just looks like it's been through a meat grinder. I don't know if it will ever show back up, so I'm going to repost it, as best as I can remember...mostly just the important parts (sans the stints and splints and the "pull my finger" stories. If you'd like a recap of those, just let me know.) Don't get me wrong, I still have faith in Blogger. I have used them for almost five years and have never had a problem like this. I am a fan of second chances (and third and fourth for that matter).

Anyway, this is my card for this past Tuesday's TCP Tuesday Challenge from The Cat's Pajamas. Tori, one of our newest Cat Pack members just jumped right in and issued her first color challenge: Spring Moss, Gray and Bashful Blue

I am usually a little more "bright" in my color choices, so I thought this one would do me in, but actually it was easier than I thought to pull it off and I REALLY like the colors together! (So much so, that I made another project using the same colors and theme that ya'll will get to see later.) The stamps are some of the newest ones from The Cat's Pajamas called The Tweetest Things and I also employed it's sister CutUps dies, Home Tweet Home and another new favorite, the Easy Rosette die.

Ok, so much for that. Be sure and play along in the TCP Tuesday Challenge for your chance at prizes, fame and fortune. Alma has all the details on her blog HERE. I'll be back soon as long as Blogger cooperates.

SUSIE Q-TIP: My docked tip from the now vanished post was a story of a great "pull my finger" dare involving me, my mom, her broken finger, the Emergency Room, a cute doctor and a Jackson. My tip today: If you find yourself in a similar situation, bet more money, it's sure to stay in your pocket. Let me know if you're lost and I'll fill you in.

  1. Love this card, what a great take on the colour challenge. That Rosette die is starting to look like a "must have" too! I'm with you re Blogger too; stuff sometimes happens and we really shouldn't be too precious about it....that said, a pull-my-finger a Jackson and a cute Doctor; yup I'm intrigued (actually torn between needing to know and being quite content to fill in the gaps in my own slightly-off-centre way, lol) Thanks for sharing, I think I might just have to become your newest follower! Dee

  2. Your card is adorable and love the colours.PERFECT!
