TCP Tuesday - Oh, Pool Boy!!!

Welcome to this week's TCP Tuesday! I can't believe its back to being my turn to hostess again, that went FAST! This month has gone by in a total flash....

That being said, I'm really excited to see what the girls have worked up with this weeks color combination - red, turquoise and ivory. I also am still loving playing with cork from Amy's challenge last week, so I couldn't help but throw a little bit of that into my sample too!

I'm now officially on a big, mean diet. Between an upcoming beachy vacation with my husband, and a summer pool club membership with my two sons, I've got to get going on shedding that dreaded winter weight! My husband has all sorts of activities planned while we're on vacation, but me, I want at least a day or two by the pool, a good summer read, and an attentive pool boy on staff to keep my glass filled with something frozen and delicious....

I've used The Cat's Pajamas "By The Sea" and patterned paper from My Mind's Eye for my sample today. When I'm stamping a solid image, like Poochie or Sprinkle, I always use Brilliance Ink and then give a clear coat of embossing powder for a totally even coverage. I love that dark pop of black for miss Sprinkle.

Be sure to add your sample using this color combination to the guestbook on Alma's blog. You'll want to play along for your chance to be named the Swanky Stamper for the month - a sweet title that comes with $25 in Cat's Cash to spend at the TCP Site!! now, ffor those of you new to TCP Tuesday, or for those feeling rusty on the requirements here's the scoop....

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. Only designs posted to the sketchbook are eligible for Swanky Stamper.
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.

Cute card! (Is that some cork hiding behind Miss Sprinkle?) Good luck with the weight loss. I joined and following their calorie/food recommendation. It worked really well. Best of luck to you!
