New Release Blog Hop & TCP Tuesday

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my stop on The Cat's Pajamas New Release Blog Hop!!  You should have come from Wendy's blog, but if you're just dropping in and want to start at the beginning you can start here. : )

Wasn't it an amazing release?  I decided to make a card with the little sock monkey image that is SO adorable.  I used the pretty sentiment during the Sneak Peeks, so I just couldn't wait to get him inky.


My card today is doing double duty for this week's TCP Tuesday challenge, too, which is to use clouds on your project.  


I watercolored a cloudy background with my distress markers, then stamped my little monkey  and an extra balloon.  After everything was watercolored and dried,  I cut he and the extra balloon out and popped them up in the sky, adding some clouds so he'd look like he was floating.

I used a sentiment from the Hang in There set, but I love how the sentiments in these two sets could be interchangeable!!



Thanks so much for stopping by this week!  I've enjoyed playing along with the Cat Pack !!  Now off you go to Kelli's blog.  I know she'll have something FABULOUS for you!!!


 TTFN!
