TCPTUES 214--You Blow Me Away

Well, it's Tuesday and that means time for another installment of our fabulous TCP Tuesday Challenges from The Cat's Pajamas. I'm your Hostess with the Mostess this week. YAY! I love hosting the challenge about once a month. Good thing, because it's my turn this week!

When I host the challenge, I come at ya'll with a STAMP/DIE Challenge. So far for us this JUNE,
it's been kind of windy and breezy around here.
So the theme of our Challenge for this week is

You Blow Me Away!

Use any stamp image that could be "taken by the wind" or that you'd blow on...(which could be candles). Could also be the balloons from Catch My Drift, Field of Pinwheels, What a Blast, or even A Cuppa or Blow, etc. Because of not many people being able to play because they never have the required die, this time there will be a choice of 2 because I'm nice. Let's use either the
Cloud Border or Pinwheel Die

so please include it on your card or project along with your stamp
for this challenge.

Here's a closer look at my cards....

I made this card as a sample for Scrapper's Boutique a couple of weeks ago, thinking it would double as my card for this challenge. BUT...What is wrong with this picture? I forgot to add the Cloud Border CutUps die cut! DOH!!

So when I made this other card for last week's color challenge, I happened to add the Pinwheel using the Pinwheel CutUps die, but then never got to post it here to my blog.

SOOOO, consider my sample "card" for this challenge a combination of the two!!

Here's all the swanky details on how YOU can play along!

Here are the details for this 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 TCPTUES214 for this week's challenge.
4. TCP stamps/dies are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp/die, like this week)
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: When making peach-mango smoothies and using fresh fruit, it's a good idea to make sure the mangos are peeled. Having never bought or much less cut up a mango before two days ago, I did not know that the peel is very bitter tasting and not meant to be eaten. Then when telling your friends about what you did, be prepared for them to laugh at you and ask you questions like, "do you eat banana peels too?" How was I to know. I'm scarred for life and I'm not sure my kids trust will ever trust my smoothie making skills again.
