You're Tweet {TCP Tuesday 176} **plus a chance to win a TCP CutUps Set**

I was happy to see Jen's inspiration challenge this week was a fall themed one. After our long hot summer, I am ready for some cooler weather.

I challenged myself to not use any coloring on this one for a change of pace. I didn't realize it until the card was complete, but there was also very little actual stamping. Instead, I made liberal use of various dies starting out by cutting out the birdhouse from the Home Tweet Home CutUps set. I attached with some dimensional dots and let some fringed paper hang outside the birdhouse to represent a nest. The border stamps include the Cloud Border, Grass and Inside Pinking. I cut the "grass" using two shades of felt from the Green with Envy set. I definitely need to get more colors of the felt - it's so soft and pliable. The bird perched atop the birdhouse and sentiment stamped on the cloud are from the Nesting stamp set. I wrapped some Aqua Divine Twine around the main panel and tied off with a button. 


Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamp and CutUps, Felt, Divine Twine, Bella Blvd dp, PTI button
All the details for this TCP Tuesday challenge can be found on Alma’s blog.

Now for some really fun news. It's been one year since the TCP CutUps debut. In celebration of that event, Alma has graciously allowed each member of The Cat Pack to give away one of the CutUps dies used on each of our TCP Tuesday 176 projects. All you have to do is leave a comment. It just does not get any easier than that! Now keep in mind that not everyone posts their challenge card on the same day so you'll need to check each individual designer; normally we post Tuesday-Monday. Up for grabs on my blog is the Home Tweet Home set which includes the birdhouse I used on today's project plus a bird and musical note die. I'll select a winner by random draw on Monday. Go to Alma's blog to see details and to get the complete list of designers.

Good luck!
