Make a Splash!

Happy Saturday!  Is anybody out there in blogland this weekend?  We've had some much needed rain today so I had a chance to stamp a bit and finished up a card I've wanted to make for TCP Tuesday from The Cat's Pajamas.  I recently won the Swanky Stamper of the Month so it was fun to do a bit of shopping with my prize money! Did you know you have a chance win Cat Cash (money to spend at TCP) for playing along with TCP Tuesday?  Fun stuff!  I actually chose 2 sets, Fun in the Sun and By the Sea so I'd be ready to make all kinds of fun summery cards!

The challenge this week is a color challenge.  I used By the Sea for my card and FTL 98.  I think I still kept the card CAS even though it has colored images - I thought it was fun that the stamp set had 3 of these cute images that looked similar!

One other fun tidbit about this card, I used some of the new Divine Twine from TCP.  Is it wrong to love twine so much??  I am in love with all the different colors of Divine Twine - I want it all! Hhhmm, perhaps I need to host a Divine Twine share . . . ! :)  I wanted to use it in place of ribbon with my Nesties ribbon slide but since it's pretty thin I used 4 strands of the Lemon twine and made a Sailors Knot to carry out the nautical theme!  I had some fun learning knot tying!

Thanks for stopping in this weekend.  I hope you all are having fun - I'm off to play with my new TCP stamps some more! :)
