TCP Tuesday - A Bright and Sunny Color Challenge

Its time for another fun TCP Tuesday Challenge and I'm thrilled to be your hostess for the week! For TCPTues102, I used of my new favorite color combinations. I think it's a nice mix of farm fresh, bright and sunny, and just cheery!

So here goes. This week's color challenge is, poppy, olive, sunny yellow and black!

I just love that pop of black in there for additional contrast, and of course, it brought my sweet Penguins to mind. And this week, the set that was calling my mind is "You Sick Thing."

I've paper pieced the bedding with a scrap of olive paper, but left the top part white...you see, the bed is all neatly folded down showing those nice crisp sheets! I used a teeny bit of the red gingham to paper piece the ice pack on top of the sick little guys head.

The layout here is from Taylor's sketch this week. However, I fiddled with it a bit, adding a bit of a bow, swapped the main image for a circle instead of a rectangle, and I couldn't keep my hands off of the apron lace punch...

This little card is getting tucked into the mail to Susie and Eric. (((hugs)) to you both at this difficult time guys.

To play along in this week's challenge, you'll link your sample to the guestbook on Alma's blog. To those of you that haven't played along before, I'll add in all the TCP Tuesday details below.

Here are the deets for the challenge.
1. Each a week one of The Cat’s Pajamas DT members will host a challenge.
2. The challenges will vary {stamp, techinque, color, theme, sketch, etc.}
3. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
4. Post your design to the guestbook on this blog. Your design must be uploaded to the guestbook to be considered.
5. TCP stamps are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp}
6. There will be one winner each month. They will be deemed that month’s Swankiest Stamper and get $25 in Cat’s Cash {money to spend on the TCP site!}.
7. Only designs posted to the guestbook will be considered for the Swanky Stamper.
8. The newly crowned Swanky Stamper will be announced on the First of the Month and have his/her winning entry posted on The Cat’s Pajamas website where he/she will reign for the entire month.

Note to my local friends!! Alma is actually traveling into Boston this weekend for a show. She'll be hosting a Trunk Show at Ink About It in Westford Mass on Saturday the 27th from 10-noon.

I am a Cat fan but those penguins are growing on me. I can't wait to get to my stamp room and break out my new TCP stamps and make a card. and maybe use some glittery stuff on it. Wohoo, there'll be some partying going on in the back porch tonight.
