TCP Tuesday - Gobble it Up!

I'm so excited to share new images from The Cat's Pajama's!

If you've just finished drooling over Amy's stunning samples, then you're in the right place. If not, you'll want to start over at Toni's place. She's got the full lineup including our inspiration piece for the week, as well as all the rules for playing along - and you won't want to miss a stop along the way!

Be sure to leave some love on each of the blogs you visit tonight because Alma is going to be giving a set of each away! The winner will be announced on Friday!

I'm sure by now, you've seen the gorgeous centerpiece that was the inspiration for our cards this evening. Some of you may already know, but I'm a mom to two boys with life threatening food allergies. And I'm always on the lookout for things that might be dangerous for them. So since I'm a geek, the first thing I thought of when I saw this beautiful scene, was "yikes, there are so many dangerous things for the boys in there!" I love the fall, but Halloween and Thanksgiving and all these food based holidays give me ***the chills***

But like I said, I'm always prepared. I keep safe treats in our pantry and freezer for these sorts of occasions.

So, for this week's challenge, I created a little place card for the upcoming
holidays. You know, all those things like bake sales, and open houses etc.

Since we have lots of little friends with food allergies as well, I always provide a safe option - this will make it really easy for the kids with allergies to know which set of treats is safe just for them!

This table placecard is made with the new stamp set titled "Gobble it Up" (which I totally **love**) as well as the "Baby Doll" and "Nightie" alphabets. I love mixing and matching these two sized alphas. For adding a drop shadow to my alpha set, I accented with a W0 marker on the white cardstock, and my Versamarker on the Kraft cardstock.

As long as you're here how about another little somethin' somethin' with "Gobble It Up" as well as the "Nightie" alphabet?

Poochie has a few different dishes that he can serve up this month, its all mix and match depending on what YOU would like to order up for dinner. But lets be honest, the best part of Turkey Day, mmm.... Pie!! Or what about sneaking some pie for breakfast the next morning, double mmmm...

I used some of my fav-o-rite gathered gingham ribbon for this card, as well a scored diamond background, stitching, a few brads, a twine tied button, and some machine stitching. Can you tell I had F-U-N making this card?

Be sure to stop by all the Cat Pack's blogs today to see all their eye candy. You won't want to miss out on your chance to be named this month's Swanky Stamper! Submit YOUR sample by adding it to the Guestbook on Alma's blog by Saturday night at midnight!

Without any further blah blah blah from me... the next stop on tonight's little HOP is Carol one of the Swanky Stampers who is joining us this evening!
