Hey, I had some very fun news this past week that I'd love to share with you.  I was chosen as The Cat's Pajamas' - Swanky Stamper for March!

Isn't that COOL?  So I get to play along with some of their next release.  Yippee!  It was such a fun and lovely surprise on a day I needed it :)   I love their fun stamps too!

To celebrate I pulled out a little TCP action for today. 

This warm and cozy palette is brought to you by the fantastic colors and patterns in the Basic Grey Indie Bloom paper pack.  I wouldn't normally throw Pumpkin Pie and Pool Party together - even though they all start with "P", but I've found they go fabulously together (I think :) ).  This cute TCP set is called You Suit Me.  I paper pieced her coat, mitts, and scarf, and then copic colored the rest.  I love the combination.  This is this months' SFYTT from Jen as well. I did alter it slightly to make it work for the larger main panel I had.  That's cut with Creative Book Pages Two Spellbinders Die.  

Here's a close-up of the coloring and details. 

Love her sunny strawberry blonde hair!
