New Release Blog Hop from The Cat's Pajamas

Well, "what's mew"?  I know, I know!  New stamps and dies have just arrived at The Cat's Pajamas!  Welcome to the New Release Blog Hop!  I'm only the second stop on the hop, so you should have made your way from Alma's Dancing in Pajamas Blog (where, btw, she's got the entire hop list in case you miss something along the way.

We've combined the hop with this month's TCP Tuesday Challenge--Clean and Simple--Design a card with clean lines, minimal elements, areas of white space and few or no embellishments, which I have followed according to my own standards.  Everything's relative, right?  LOL!  Here's a closer look at my "non-rambunctious" card:

I used the new "What's Mew" stamp set, featuring that sweet kitty, Sprinkle hiding out in the Amazon Rain Forest, hunting down snipe.  My card is daintily embellished with the zig-zagged Pinking Border CutUps and Mini Exotic Butterflies dies that were previously released and still available.  I think this stamp set is so stinkin' cute and it really does remind me of the movie, "Up"!

Ok, that's about all from me.  Don't forget that we'd love for ya'll to play along in our TCP Tuesday Challenge!  It's super easy and YOU could be our next Swanky Stamper!  Check out all the details HERE.

Now it's time to pounce on over to LORI'S Blog!  See ya'll soon!
