TCP Tuesday on Thursday.....



Hi there!!  It's TCP Tuesday on a Thursday!!  Leigh is our Hostess with the Mostess this week and she gave us an AWESOME sketch to play with!  Have you ever had days when the card you make just comes together so easy?  Well, that was how this card came together!!  It doesn't happen often for me, so I'm gonna brag a little!  HA!

I used Whale of a Time for my card.  I paired my fave little whale with some MME Stella and Rose Hazel papers.  The triangles on the bottom layer were made with CutUps Pennant Dies and the waves with the CutUps Wave Die.  Oh, and see the button?  Made that with the CutUps Button die and a thin coaster!  If feels sturdy like a regular button.  It was covered with a pattern from the MME Hazel pad.  And of course, I can't make a card without my divine Oyster DIVINE TWINE!  I can't tell you how much I love Divine Twine.  I have seriously thought of getting rid of most of my ribbon and replacing it with just Divine Twine, but I guess that wouldn't be too smart!  LOL!  Some machine stitching and sentiment flag finish the card.

Want to play along with TCP Tuesday?  You can find all the details here.






Well, that's all from me today!  I hope you have a good one!
