TCP Release Blog Hop/TCPTUES 207

Well, I hope you were able to join us for our Release Party last night for The Cat's Pajamas. It's always so flattering to hear how much ya'll enjoyed the peeks and all of the Cat Pack's creations, but it went even further last night when I heard that several of ya'll thought this release was hit out of the ballpark and you loved EVERYTHING about it! Thanks goes to ALMA and her amazing insight into creating stamp sets and dies that are HOT HOT HOT! SHE's the one who makes us all look good!

Anyway, we've got a HOT HOT HOT New Release/TCP Tuesday Blog Hop to share with ya'll today. The fabulous JULIE started the hop since she's our Hipster Hostess with the Mostess and she's challenging everyone to use your favorite technique for making your own flower embellishments on your card or project. (If you've just come to see me, I'm only the second on the hop, so be sure and take a minute to go back over and see JULIE first, so you don't miss a thing!)

I saved this card for the hop because I used that new Pom Pom Flower CutUps die to create a fun (very 3-D) fringy flower to showcase those cute snuggly bears that are deep into a Beary Potter story from the new Quality Time set. My girls think they are just about too big to snuggle up and be read to, but I may have to just make them and do it anyway!

Ok, next on the hop is AMY ROHL! I'm sure she has something extremely swanky to share with ya'll!

SUSIE Q-TIP: You don't always have to tie something through a button that you use as a flower center, etc. I know some of ya'll have a problem with "naked" buttons and all their holes just "showing". I don't. But as an alternative to actually tying twine or something through them, top them off with a rhinestone, pearl flatback or something similar. I LOVE these that I found from Martha Stewart.
