TCP Tuesday 334-Spring and New Goodies!

Hey there party people! 
Have you seen the new TCP Goodies?
Have you played in the Spring challenge?
Well, you need to! You should, I want you to!
That should be enough motivation!


Isn't the new Happy Easter set just GORGEOUS!! I paired it with the Happy Spring paper pad from Echo Park, and cardstock from MFT in Berrylicious, Banana Split, and Bubble Gum. I double stamped the sentiment with Black and Berrylicious ink, and now it, to me, looks blurry, but I have had a headache/migraine for so many days in a row that I can't see straight. The new CutUps I used are the new: Easter Bunny and Spring Wreath!!

Story Time:

Well kids, I'm the worst. Not like a little bit the worst, like THE TOTAL WORST. I got these goodies from Alma at the Cat's Pajamas and I was super sick with a migraine, like, the FedEx guy handed them to me as I was walking out the door to go to the hospital for treatment sick. Then, I started to feel better, and I was all geared up to have a stamping day! I had my desk clean, I had the idea you see below you in my head, and I got a call from my sister that my Dad was sick, and not just a little sick, like, being flown by a helicopter sick, and well...I completely shut down. 
He's fine now, luckily it wasn't life threatening, and is on the mind with a reminder from life that unfortunately aging is a real thing.
Me, I went right back to square one with my migraine. So, now I am late, and you are just now seeing them from me, but THEY ARE SO CUTE!! Two new Cut Ups, and a GORGEOUS new set, and even better, they coordinate with with CutUps we already have like the Easter Basket, so this set is just FANTASTIC!!!

So here are the new goodies:





Here are the details to the challenge:

  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EDT before the next challenge.
  3. You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
  4. On the following TCP Tuesday, the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10 or $15 if a TCP product is used.


Well, that is all for me!! Thanks so much for stopping by and for hanging out on my blog!! Hope to see you around friends!!

Krafty Komeback-Bathing with Brigette!

It's time for a Krafty Komeback!!!  

As you may or may not know, lots of our rubber stamp sets have long retired and are not available for purchase anymore since we switched to the new Krafty Klear sets. Well, we've decided to re-release a few of your faves in clear! Today we're announcing a new one!

This wonderful stamp set features one of our most popular images from artist Annie Rodrigue!  She looks so relaxed soaking in that sumptuous bubble bath!!!  It's BRIGITTE!


Right now, I wish this was me....especialy those legs...amirite?!!
Brigette looks like she is the picture of relaxation in her bath, and I added a little flooring to "ground" her. She's been out all night, so it's time to wash off the glitter, and you can see it still sparkling in her hair(and on the bubbles, and her eyes....hey, it's glitter, the herpes of craft supplies). 


Here is a look at the full set!




AND she's so much fun to colour!  And what a fabulous set to remind our friends and family to take time for themselves and to RELAX!

Ellie With Clovers-Paper Nest Dolls

This gorgeous image I have used today is from the Paper Nest Dolls digital stamp collection! It is called Ellie With Clovers, and is one of my favorites of the newest images released by Christine in March! She took the super cute Ellie with Flowers, and changed her a bit to give her a St. Patrick's Day feel!!


For Ellie, I went with red hair, as a proper Irish girl would, and stuck with the green theme. I threw in a bit of yellow because it made me think of GOLD!! She was paired with paper from Doodlebug, and cardstock from both MFT and Bazzil.

Well, that is it for me now! Have a great day!
