Sneaky Peek Week and a TCP Tuesday, too!

Hiya crafty peeps, I'm back with another TCP Tuesday card.....
Ok, ok, AND it's the beginning of Sneaky Peek Week! Are you so excited for this release? I know I am! The first set we are debuting is called "Hare Today."
 I love this little guy! I decided to make a little hanging sign. I thought it might be fun to give to a friend who's going through a rough time. You see, Mr. Bun is looking for rainbows without realizing there's one right behind him! :)
I started by using the doily and adding the punched circle of black DP, added a rainbow, then I added a layer using the Cloud Border CutUp and the Wave CutUp. I trimmed around the bottom of the wave piece to match up with the scalloped edge of the doily. The sign is a red cardstock circle and a smaller piece of the b/w patterned paper I used on the doily. I used a sparkly white paper for the cloud layer and the circle that the sentiment is stamped on, that's why it looks a bit dim in the photos, but it's SUPER cute in person! :)
Mr. Umbrella Bun was colored with Copics and fussy cut. I colored the umbrella with rainbow stripes to match the rainbow theme I was going with.
I added some brightly colored ribbons to hang my sign on. Do you like it? Would you like to have this as a cheerful reminder of good things to come?
Ok, *now* onto the card for this month's TCP Tuesday! Here is the scoop for the challenge:

*You can use the colors: White, Cream, Kraft, Black + one actual color of your choosing.
*You may have your base card, plus only 2 layers.
*You may only use one patterned paper.
*Embellishments do NOT count as a layer, we have decided! :) 
Here's my card for this week's challenge... I ended up using almost the exact same layout as my LAST TCP Tuesday card for this month! 
The layered stamped and inked circular panel on the bottom right adds a lot of interest, I think. I started by stamping the nest. Then I cut a mask with the Cloud Border CutUp & created the clouds with some homemade spray ink. Then I added my bird outline, polka dot bird, and sentiment. 
The final touches were three adhesive buttons and some Aqua Divine Twine. The stamp set used is Nesting.
Whew! That is all for me today! I will be back several more times this week with some more fun Peeks! I can't wait for you to see this awesome release! It's fab! :)

hugs, Noelle

I love your sign! So bright and cheery...I'm sure whoever receives it as a gift will absolutely adore it! Your TCP Tuesday card is also very sweet and simple. I never think that I can make my own spray mists...thanks for that idea!
