{TCP Tuesday 176} PLUS A TCP GIVEAWAY!!!!


It has been a year since Alma, owner of The Cat's Pajamas introduced the fantastic Cut Ups Dies and to celebrate we're doing a giveaway!  Each Cat Pack Member is giving away a Cut Ups Die that is featured on their cards made for the TCP Tuesday Challenge #176!  So make sure you head to all of the Cat Packer's TCP Tuesday #176 post to leave a comment!! (Their links are in my sidebar) You will have until Monday night (tonight) to leave a comment for your chance to win!  Since my post is SO LATE, I'm giving you until Tuesday night (that's tomorrow) at 9:00 pm PST to leave a comment for your chance to win!  The die featured on my card is the Cut Ups Apron Die:



Jen is our Hostess With the Mostess and she gave us this wonderful fall trio of pics to work with for inspiration:



I was totally inspired by the colors from all three pics and the subtle pattern of the leaves from the far left picture.

I used the adorable set, A Cuppa and paired it with some Crate Paper Farmhouse papers.  See the Apron Cut Ups tucked behind the main image?  The sentiment is appropriate as my hubby and girls have been sick for the last week (they are all back at school/work...HOORAY!) but now I'm feeling a bit under the weather!  Although I'm not as bad as they were!  

The sketch is the Deconstructed Sketch #19.  The apron was paper pieced and the image was colored with Copics.  The sentiment was masked and each word was stamped to make three individual sentiment flags.  They were machine stitched to the main image.  Some Ivory Linen Thread, a button and some rounded corners finish the card.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a great week!
