TCP Tuesday Trio and a Bonus

Hi everyone!  I have a trio of Cat's Pajamas cards for you today!

The TCP Tuesday challenge this month is to make a card, and then make two more cards using the things left on your desk..  What fun!

I started by making the front card last night - inking up my new Bounce Back set because I felt about as rotten as the bunny.  I wasn't really feeling super creative, so it is pretty plain and simple... some MME Tangerine paper, some copic coloring and a sentiment.  Oh, and a wee bit of paper piecing on the tissue box.  Must have a tissue box.  We are great friends right now.

Before I cleaned up the desk today I decided that I should try to make the two other cards.  I found this polka dot die cut frame from the Framed Up Cut Ups set, so I adhered it to the front of this card base that I scored wrong  and then used another die in the set to cut through both layers.

I stamped my bunny in the opening and a sentiment on top, but I still felt like it needed something across the bottom, if I was going to make the longer edge look like I meant it to be like that.  Hmmm.  Oh, Look!  I have the Vintage Holiday set on my desk! YES!!  So I used the cool little flourish that looks like owl eyes to decorate the edge.

This last card is one my Dad requested.  He and a friend from church exchange funny cards and Dad thought he'd appreciate it and feel loved, not insulted. :) I was inspired to make the plaid background after watching this week's StampTV video.  I didn't have the same supplies on hand so I just used a white gel pen and a black micron pen.  I think it is PERFECT for a guy's card!!  Oh - and the cutout from the card above is behind the sentiment!

OK, on to the bonus card.  DH has a birthday on coming up and he was hoping to take the day off, but something came up and he won't be able to.  I thought he might appreciate a little humor, too.

I inked up Go! Fight! Win! and colored my bunny in Packers colors with copics after stamping a background.  I added some grass with prismacolor pencils and some stitching, then I used the top of the Less Work, More Football stamp to add a sentiment into the upper left corner.

On the inside I stamped the word MORE and then had to search through my stamps to find a "birthday" stamp that would sort of match.  Obviously I didn't do too well on the stamping straight thing, but I don't think he'll mind.  

I think 
will sum up his sentiments quite nicely!!

Thanks for stopping by and reading through this LONG post.  Have a wonderful day!
