TCP Tuesday #211 - Flower Pots & Mustaches?

Hey there, happy TCP Tuesday. Jen is our host, and has come up with a beautiful trio of inspiration photos for us this week:

I was {obviously} inspired by the flower pots as well as the blades of grass/foliage on the far right. I die-cut the flower pots out of cork using the flowerpot die from the Window CutUps set. The Grass border and Flower Buttons are also TCP CutUps. (I have a wee die addiction!) And here's something fun ... see the green leaves behind the flowers? That's the Mustache Slide turned upside down. I used the mustache slide to cut some green patterned paper, then threaded that striped paper through it, and turned it upside down for leaves instead of mustaches. Finished off with a sentiment from the new Bloom stamp set.

Here are all the swanky details on how YOU can play along!:

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 guestbook on Alma's blog and/or upload to the SCS Gallery, using the keyword TCPTUES211 for this week's challenge.
4. TCP stamps/dies are not required, but of course, highly encouraged.
5. There will be one randomly chosen weekly winner, announced on Tuesdays.
6. There will be one winner, The Swanky Stamper, announced the 1st of each month. They will win several sets from an upcoming release and get to play along with us at our Pajama Party and Blog Hop.

Thanks for checking in!
