Leigh is the lucky hostess for challenge # 200 and it is one of her fabulous sketches. I had so many ideas for this that I think I will be using this one again for sure. It doesn't really appear that I did much stamping but in actuality I used five different stamps from the Nesting set. I first stamped the nest onto patterned paper and then cut out. I stamped the solid bird and eggs in two different colors and then stamped the outline of each in black. I cut out both and attached to the nest image. I then die cut six birdhouses/roofs to represent the squares in the sketch using the Home Tweet Home CutUps set.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps and CutUps, My Mind's Eye dp, PTI twill, Maya Road stickpins

All the details for this TCP Tuesday challenge can be found on Alma’s blog. Don't forget to comment on the various Cat Pack blogs for your chance to win our next release. Alma will be sharing links on her blog as each member posts their TCP Tuesday project.
