TCP Tuesday 187 and a TCP Blog Hop

Well, last night all the new winter stuff from The Cat's Pajamas was released. YAY! That means today we have a fun "after party" Blog Hop which happens to coincide with our weekly TCP Tuesday Challenge! More YAY! (Hi Bonnie.) If you came here from Leigh's blog, you're scootin' right along. Otherwise, trek on back to the beginning over at Julie's blog. Ok, now that we've got that out of the way, time's a wastin', so let's get to gettin'...

Julie is our Hostess with the Mostess and she always has a fun "technique" challenge. This time it's pretty broad and easy, so I don't expect any hesitation from ya'll in your playing along. Just create shiny embellishments for your holiday card. Use glitter, glossy accents or whatevs! Yooooo can doooo it!!!

I used the new set, Merry Christmas Honey. For my shiny embellishment, I used Dazzling Diamonds from SU! on the garland and star. Super sparka-lay in real life. I also layered a Snowflake Lace Paper doily back behind the main image panel and finished the card off with some Cranberry Seam Binding Ribbon (crinkled with a little water and dried with my heat gun) and Christmas Divine Twine. Swoon....!!!!

Ok, I've got to go and get some more lights for our Christmas tree. Eight strands is NOT enough and since 2 other strands aren't working, I have to grab a couple more for Eric to finish them up tonight. That will make Day 3 of just decorating the Christmas tree! Ack! It's a big tree.

Ok, ya'll's next stop on the hop is the talented and oh-so-fabulous Jen!! Be sure and give her some special love--she's had a rough week with a sick kiddo!

BUT FIRST, SPECIAL NEWS: As a Christmas gift to ya'll and the last sale of the year, The Cat's Pajamas will be offering 15% off your entire purchase until the end of November.
