TCP Tuesday - It's a Holiday Hop!

Hi everyone! Tomorrow, November 10 is release day over at The Cat's Pajamas, with 5 fabulous new sets that are sure to tickle your toes! Really, they're just too ADORABLE! And the Cat Pack is doing their swanky little blog hop thang and I got invited to play along this week! Yahoo!

So if you've been doing the Holiday Hop, you got here from the fabulous Ana Wohlfahrt's blog, but if not, don't worry, you can just click on over to the start of this shindig, at Susan's blog, who also happens to be the TCP Tuesday Hostess with the Mostess for this week!

For TCP Tuesday, Susan challenged us with making something "for the holidays", and bless her little heart, I love an easy challenge! I knew exactly what I wanted to make with the fabulous new Give a Little set and the new alpha set.

Since there are always a few people on my list that seem more delighted with cash than anything I would lovingly pick out for them, I decided to make a little money holder card. I stamped the adorable penguin and the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black and colored with Copics. I added some black mats, and rounded corners and a punched border to make a little tag shape, then threaded some red polka dot ribbon through the tag and embellished with a button from the Candy Sprinkles Buttons collection. The background papers are from the Fancy Pants Happy Holidays 8x8 pad, and I embossed the green layer with the Snowflakes Cuttlebug folder, then lightly sanded to set them off.

For the inside, I created a little pocket to stash the cash with a piece of black cardstock the length of my card, decked out with some coordinating paper stamped with some of the snowflakes from Give a Little, as well as the alphabet stamps, forming the words Merry Moulah.

Okay, that's all for me, be sure to head on over to the next stop on the hop, the talented Jen del Muro's blog, to see what fabulous eye candy she has for you. Then keep hopping along, because you won't want to miss what the swankiest cat in town, Alma de la Rosa, has in store at the end of the hop. Oh, and if you're wondering what TCP Tuesday is all about, read on...

  1. Well, who wouldn't love cash. ESPECIALLY in this super cute holder. I'm thinking it's a toss-up which I'd like better.
