Have a Beary Happy St. Paddy's Day

Hey there, friends, I've actually got my TCP Tuesday card ready on a Tuesday for once! Check out this awesome inspiration collection Jen put together for this week's challenge, TCPTues201:

I picked up on the green and blue combo and decided to put together a St. Patrick's Day card featuring A Beary Good Year. Just for fun and to go along with the inspiration photos, I adorned PJ with a little chevron paper piecing and a bow-tie. A dapper fella, no?

1. Each Tuesday we will give you a challenge.
2. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
3. Add your entry to the Inlinkz Gallery on Alma's blog -OR- upload to the SCS Gallery, using keyword TCPTUES201 for this week's challenge.
4. TCP stamps are not required for this challenge, but highly encouraged.
5. There will be one randomly chosen weekly winner, announced on Tuesdays who will win a Gift Voucher for use on The Cat's Pajamas website.
6. There will be one winner, The Swanky Stamper, announced the 1st of each month, who will win several sets from an upcoming release and get to play along with us at our Pajama Party and Blog Hop.
7. The winner has one week from the day the winner is posted to contact Alma for his/her voucher code.

I also used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #154 for my layout:

Hope you're having a great week!

Totally adorable. I think your card is cuter than that cupcake and I don't like many things more than I like cupcakes.

Hi Amy, cute card! Hey, just wanted to let you know I linked a photography tutorial you posted on SCS (from 2009 I think) to my blog for reference. I don't have a huge following or anything but didn't want to post and not let you know. I have had such a struggle posting my pictures, tripod or not, so this was just what I needed to read. I loved your reference to ironing sheets...my mom did that for years. Me I go for the wrinkle free sheets!
