TCP Tuesday 279-Anything Goes!

Hello there, dear blog friends! Sorry for my absence, all that is about to change, though. I have been a busy bee. I figured out my design schedule for the rest of this year on Saturday morning, and was a smidge anxious to realize that I have 21 posts/projects that will need to be completed and posted between now and mid-December! That is a lot for a little over a month, but some really FUN stuff is coming your way! Some for The Cat's Pajamas, some for Craft Storage Ideas, and some for CardMaker, but still, yeah, feeling busy! ;) I did make a whole lot of headway this weekend though. Most of my Saturday was dedicated to crafting-with Christmas tunes blaring since I was making Christmas cards, after all. ;) I looooove Christmas music, so any excuse to listen to it before Thanksgiving is a good one. :)

Today is a new week for TCP Tuesday! Today, the challenge is "Anything Goes!" My sweet middle son, Collin has a birthday this week! He is turning 12, hard to believe. This is his card. At the bottom are a few pics of him, through the years. My card for today is his birthday card. :)

I and fun making this cute pirate, and the multicolored stamped sentiment panel.

I used the "Aye, Eye, I" stamp set, and the Under My Hat CutUps, as well as the Framed Up CutUps.

I used some punched circles and the Numbers Plate CutUps on the inside of the card. :) 

Want to play over at TCP? Here's the deets to join in the fun:

  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat's Pajamas blog as well as on our Splitcoaststampers forum and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design The Cat's Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button below. If you want to display your pretties on Splitcoaststampers use keyword TCPTUES279. Only the entries uploaded to the Inlinkz button will be considered for Swanky Stamper at the end of the month.
  3. You must have your project posted by the Monday, 12 midnight EDT before the next challenge to be eligible to win the Cat Cash.
  4. Cards and projects are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas Stamp or CutUps die but if you do the Cat Cash amount increases.
  5. On the following TCP Tuesday, the week's winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10.00 or $15 if a TCP product is used.
  6. At the end of the month, The Swanky Stamper will be selected from all the weekly entries. The Swanky Stamper will receive some of the stamps from our next release and get to play along with us at our Pajamas Party and Blog Hop. AND… They’ll even get a special spot in the Gallery highlighting the project that won them the gig and a snazzy badge to display on their blog.
  7. The Swanky Stamper will be announced the First Monday of the month on Splitcoaststampers, Facebook page and The Cat's Pajamas blog.

Collin is such a great and special boy. He is kind, super smart, inquisitive, and sweet. I have been certain for a long time that this kid has an IQ higher than mine! He is so bright, it is awesome. Here are some pics of him through the years, I cannot believe he's 12, I know I say that every year, but I can't. :( 

Have a fantastic week!
