I Wheelie Love You

If you're not already anticipating Spring, you will be after you see this week's TCP Tuesday challenge. Here it is, brought to you by the crazy talented Susan Liles:
This week at The Cat's Pajamaswe are celebrating the anticipation of spring, by hopefully by enjoying THE GREAT OUTDOORS!--Use any stamp(s) from The Cat's Pajamas that are "out getting a breath of fresh air" (aka, doing something outside) ALONG WITH your Cloud Border CutUps Die

What to choose .... sitting in a field of pinwheels? Splashing in the spring rain? Flying a kite? Camping? Hunting easter eggs? The list goes on  -- so many awesome outdoor images! In the end, it was Wheel Love that called my name. I just adore that sweet bicycle. I'm also harboring some serious love for the Clouds Border CutUps Die. If dies wore out with use, that one would be a prime candidate for me.

Several other CutUps dies got a workout today as well. What can I say ... I do love my dies! At the top, along with the Clouds border, I added some yellow gingham hearts die-cut with the Heart Trio. And then at the bottom, I've used the Big Scallop border, Flower Buttons, the Grass Border, and the oval from Circus Panels for the sentiment. Papers are from  My Mind's Eye's Be Amazing and On the Bright Side - One collections.

Okay, ladies, here are the "rules" -- please 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 keywordTCPTUES199 for this week's challenge.
4. TCP stamps/dies are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp/die, like this week)
5. There will be one randomly chosen weekly winner, announced on Tuesdays.
6. There will also be one winner, The Swanky Stamper, announced the 1st of each month. The Swanky Stamper will win several sets from an upcoming release and get to play along with us at our Pajama Party and Blog Hop.

Thanks so much for visiting!
