TCP Tuesday 164--Got Bears?

Well, being that it's Tuesday, I'm your Hostess with the Mostess for this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge #164 from The Cat's Pajamas. Ya'll know I always deliver a swanky STAMP challenge, so this week, just like the heat wave going on here in North Texas, we are going to "GRIN AND BEAR IT"!

Use any BEAR stamp from The Cat's Pajamas for this week's challenge!

Here's a close up of my card using A Beary Good Year and all three alphabet sets from The Cat's Pajamas--Coolvetica (that I lost the lower case "t" to today--grrr), Nightie and Baby Doll. (Speaking of alphabets, did ya'll read THIS interesting post by Alma on her blog? They are words of wisdom, my friends!) I also took the "libearty" to use my Easy Rosette (the small one) and Big Pinking Border CutUps dies. That's about all I have today...

But wait, there's more!
1. SUMMER RELEASE--Have ya'll heard that there's a NEW RELEASE from The Cat's Pajamas coming your way next week! Sneaky Peeks start TODAY! Alma's got a list of Cat Packer's who have some great stuff to show ya'll over on HER BLOG.
2. IN IT TO WIN IT?--Join us in our Splitcoast Forum HERE for your chance to win the Sneaky Peek stamp set of the day just by chatting and leaving a comment.

And last but not least, there are a few things to "BEAR in mind" while you play with us in this STAMP challenge:

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 TCPTUES164 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.

SUSIE Q-TIP: Most teacher stores carry library cards--the old fashioned kind. You can also find them online to print off like on this fun blog HERE. They make a unique backdrop for stamped images and are super fun to embellish!
