TCP Tuesday 159--May Flowers

Well, is it Friday yet? I keep feeling like we are further along in the week than we actually are. Not that I WANT it to be Friday. Well, maybe I do. Lindsie's fourth grade class is going to camp tomorrow and I'm already missing her! They are going to Camp Grady Spruce out on Possum Kingdom Lake (one of the camps that was spared and right across the lake from the massive Texas wildfires of last month), spending 3 jam-packed days and 2 nights there and then coming home Friday about 2:30. She's super excited and I've got lots to do still to get her packed and ready.

So this being Tuesday, and me being the Hostess with the Mostess for this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge 159 from The Cat's Pajamas, I thought I would make this card for Lindsie to open while at camp. My challenges always involve using certain stamps from The Cat's Pajamas and this time, I chose to follow the theme, "April showers bring May FLOWERS"! Yes, the challenge is to use any stamp or stamps from The Cat's Pajamas that include or is a FLOWER.

I chose A Beary Good Year, because I can have PJ holding this little flower and also because I plan on making Lindsie 2 more cards today (one to open every day at camp) and I want to use all the TCP bears--PJ, Big Bear, and Bear Hugs. She asked if I thought she would see any bears out there at camp and I told her no, that there weren't any. So now she will!

Wanna play along for fame and fortune?
Here's what you need to know:

1. Each Tuesday we will give you a challenge.
2. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
3. Add your entry to the guestbook on Alma's Blog and/or upload to the SCS Gallery, using the keyword TCPTUES159 for this week's challenge.
4. TCP stamps are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp}
5. There will be one randomly chosen weekly winner, announced on Tuesdays.
6. There will be one winner, The Swanky Stamper, announced the 1st of each month. They will win several sets from an upcoming release and get to play along with us at our Pajama Party and Blog Hop.
