OOO yesterday and today have been sizzlers in our neck of the woods!   Not quite summer, but feeling the summer temperatures, that’s for sure!  Today’s TCP Tuesday Challenge is kicking off that summer vibe with a new challenge and the theme is simply - summer!  Think of all the fun possibilities!  

I pulled out this sweet little TCP set, Bloom.  A lot of my flowers are blooming now, including my orange lilies, so it seemed like a perfect pairing.  It’s all coloured with Copics and a little bit of prismacolor pencil in the grass and sky.  It’s all pulled together with some fun papers from MME - Jubilee Tangerine, and then a little Icing CutUps border.  As I was digging through my stash for some cute little embellishment I came across these felt flowers from ages ago that worked perfectly.  

A great celebration of all that blooms in the summer season.  

A quick look at the inside of the card too...

Now here’s the challenge details...

  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EDT before the next challenge.
  3. You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
  4. On the following TCP Tuesday, the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10 or $15 if a TCP product is used.

You have captured a summery feel perfectly with this beauty. You also have a habit of reminding me about stamp sets!
