TCP Release Day Blog Hop & TCP Tuesday 165

Happy Release Day!!  We had an absolute blast at The Cat's Pajamas Release Party last night - if you missed it, well shame on you! :)  But you have a chance to catch up now as the whole TCP Cat Pack, including our special Guests this month, is having a special Release Day Blog Hop!

You should have arrived here from Leigh's blog - she's the first one since it's also TCP Tuesday #165 and she's the Hostess With the Mostest this week!  Everyone knows Leigh's sketch's rock and this one is no exception!  Looky, looky . .  .

One of the most adorable stamps in this release (but seriously, I love them all!!) is Wheel LoveAmy's use of it for her Paper Pleating Tutorial on SCS 2 weeks ago set SCS on fire with people asking about the cute bunny on the bike!  I had to try my hand at a bit of paper pleating on this card and it was so easy thanks to the great tutorial!

 As you can see I turned the sketch on its side for this one and there are TONS of layers here - so unusual for me but sometimes you just go with it!  I got a brand new pack of Country Drive from Echo Park (get it at i {heart} papers!!) and it seemed perfect for our bunny biking through the country!

 I used one of the pretty Exotic Butterfly dies that is now available as well as the Big Scallop CutUps die which is an "old" favorite!  I just love the retro bike so it has a retro color and fun white basket on the front (remember those white plastic "wicker" baskets?!!). 

I decided to add the sentiment on the inside which gave me an excuse to use more of the gorgeous dp, another Exotic Butterfly and the fun sentiment from the set - love love the fonts!!

Ok, it's time to hip hop out of here and over to Jen's blog - you know you'll see something amazing there!!

Thanks for hopping with us!!
