TCP Tuesday (on Wednesday)

Sorry I haven't been very consistent with posting lately.  Last week I broke the 3rd power cord I've had for my laptop (in 3 years!).  Since then I've had to jockey with my children for use of the PC and since the computer is downstairs in our house I don't spend much time on it late at night.  Ok, enough excuses . . . hopefully I'll have a new cord by next week!

This week's TCP Tuesday is a color challenge by my friend Joanne - great colors!  I hadn't inked up this adorable set yet, Ship Happens - ha! from The Cat's Pajamas but what fun it was!  I was in the mood to paper piece I guess because almost every element of this image was pieced and/or cut out. One of my favorite parts is the tiny little newsprint paper hats - cracks me up! :) (If you click on the photo you'll get a much better view of it!)

I used the new Birch wood paper for the tea cup "boat" adding some color with a Copic marker - love the wood grain!  I also used the new Wave Cut-Ups die and the Buttons die along with some felt from the Singing the Blues felt collection (the felt is soooo yummy!!).  Phew - that's a lot of yummy new-ness! :)  Of course, I had to throw in some Divine Twine and it seemed appropriate to make another Sailor's Knot which is so fun to do!!

Oh and you might notice a certain napping kitty in the background of my photos??  Our cat, Oki has taken a liking to my light box and was so lazily lounging that I decided to let him stay for the photo shoot - although the pics didn't turn out very well - I think it was hard to balance the dark blue of the waves with the lighter colors of the box and cat.  Sorry about that - I'll try taking a better one in the morning!

Be sure to check out the details for TCP Tuesday on Alma's blog and a leave a link to your card if you play along!  There's also a TCP Customer Blog Hop going on that I plan on joining so I better get making another card - have a great night!
