Have A Great Earth Day


Did you all see yesterday's Cat's Pajamas Sneaky Peek? If not, halt and go HERE. The mustache trend has arrived at TCP! I think it's a cute (albeit odd) trend and am happy to jump on board! The upcoming TCP release has both The Mustache Set and The Mustaches CutUps dies. I thought it would be fun to use two of the dies to make The Lorax. Initially, I was working on a birthday card for my youngest son, who turns 5 on Tuesday, but I realized I could rearrange the letters of one of the sentiments in The Mustache Set just a bit to create an Earth Day sentiment, and well, today is Earth Day, so why not?

The mustaches (I used two of them for eyebrows) are cut from one of the felt colors in TCP's Mellow Yellow collection. The rest is just made from various circle punches. Easy-peasy. I kept it super simple, with just rounded corners, a sentiment flag, and a black button tied off with Lemon Divine Twine.

Speaking of Sneaky Peeks, you'll be over the moon for today's -- a darling set called Wish. Visit Alma for eye candy and links! And, as always, join the chitchat on the In It To Win It thread on SCS for a chance to win some of the brand-new TCP.

See you tomorrow with our final Sneaky Peek. You won't want to miss it!
