Today I am sharing a sweet image from LeAnn's World 101.  Her name is Musica and she is just a joy to color!

This alcohol ink background just seemed like the perfect place for her to play her beautiful harp.  Please stop in and check out LeAnn's Etsy shop for more wonderful images like Musica.  You can also join in on the progressive challenge found on the Facebook page here.

Happy Aloha Friday!

Who Runs the World...

...GIRLS!  That's who!  Janice is our hostess this week at Little Red Wagon and she would like to see a project featuring girls or women.  I have a simple card I put together really quickly, but I think it depicts one of the reasons women/girls run the world...LOVE! 

I had this little girl from Mo's Digital Pencil all colored up and put together this quick, simple card.

I am pleased with the way this turned out and it happened pretty much because I was very short on time.  I found the image I had colored during some practice and the rest is pretty easy to figure out.

I hope you all will be able to find the time to join us this week.  Please stop in to see what the girlfriends have created for Janice's fun challenge.   Here's the link to make it easy Little Red Wagon!

TCP Release Day

The Cat’s Pajamas Release day is here!  The three new stamp sets and CutUps Dies are available in the TCP store.  Along with release day, it's also time for the Cat Pack to hop and show you more of this fabulous release.

Since today is TCP Tuesday reminder day, I created this little gift card holder using the new Sponsored By set and the Spring Tag Duo Dies.  They are so perfect for the Coffe/Tea challenge -

The gift card holder was made from the Spring Tag duo die and was stamped with the little coffee cup stamp.  I love the way the tiny tag turned out.  It was created by stamping the sentiment on shrink plastic -

The cups were paper pieced and the Bunny was colored with Copic markers.

So, you should have arrived here from Lynn's blog and Wendy is up next.  Here is the entire line up and conveniently enough you end up at The Cat's Pajamas blog where you will find the entire new release -

Thank you so much for hopping with us today!

Saturday is my favorite so, I want to share a card I loved making with dies from Frantic Stamper.  This was such fun and actually got a reaction from my family (they seldom show much interest in my cards).  Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory) was the inspiration for this card. I used the new T-shirt die (FRA-DIE-10430) from the "Proud of Dad" release and a couple of older dies, Heroic Symbols (FRA-DIE-09861) and Double Fishtail Labels (FRA-DIE-09735). 

Here's a bit closer look.  The sentiment was computer generated.

Be sure and check out the Frantic Stamper pager here on Facebook and Instagram - franticstamper.  Thanks for stopping in and helping me celebrate Saturday!  Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all.

TCP Sneaky Peek Day 4

I'm certain by now you know it's sneaky peek week at The Cat's Pajamas.  I hope you've seen the wonderful cards made by Julie, Nancy and Lynn.  If you haven't it is definitely worth the look.  The release of 3 fab stamp sets and 3 dies is set for March 20.

I had a great time putting together these cards.  The first card features the beautiful butterfly dies from the Butterfly Trio CutUps.  The sentiment is from Simply Stacked Sentiments -

The next card features the Spring Tag, Oval Scroll Duo Dies and Sponsored By stamp set.  The floral rounded portion of the tag was cut with the oval using the Oval Scroll Duo Die-

I love making cards that require a bit of thinking.  The gorgeous Spring Tag Duo Die made me think of a secret place, so I knew I wanted it to open to reveal one of the tiny houses from Special Delivery -

The gate swings on paper "hinges".  This was fun to create.

The last two cards feature the sassy cats from What the Froth (LOVE THESE GUYS!) and the Oval Scroll Duo Die.  I also used Watercolor Basics, a sentiment from Home is Where the Cat Is.

The background on this card is actually coffee stained.  I LOVE this sentiment!

Here's a quick look at all the new goodies!



That's it for my peeks today.  Now it's over to you for a chance to win!

Just leave a comment on the featured designer's blog and their Instagram account (@brendanh50). Winners will be announced on The Cat's Pajamas Blog and Facebook page each day. You can keep up with the designer of the day at The Cat's Pajamas blog.  The very talented Deborah is up for tomorrow so stay tuned.
