Sprinkles is Celebrating

Congratulations to Sprinkles and all her whacky penguin friends.  The Cat's Pajamas has become a member company over on Splitcoast.  Congratulations Alma! So if  you can't get enough of all things TCP now you can head over to the Forum section at SCS and yak it up with the rest of us.  Believe it or not, I'm kind of shy, really.  I never would have believed that I'd be talking on line to people I never met and I certainly would not believe that I was going to be blogging.  If you think you'll never do this, well, here's the progression.  I started out with just looking at the galleries on SCS.  For ages all I did was look around.  Eventually I found out that if you open a card's file there's usually info there and that's where  I started reading about cards being for challenges.  Then I found the forums and stalked around for awhile, and eventually I got interested enough to start talking, the folks seemed neighborly enough.  While I was there I noticed blogs in signature lines and started visiting and hopping around.  Found lots more challenges and eventually realized that the easiest way to participate in most of them was to set up a blog.  That's how it happened.  Seems rather simple now but it took a few years for all that to come to pass, so if you think you can't do it, well, if  I can do it, you can do it.  If you think you won't do it, well, get out now while the getting's good.

This card is for the The Cat's Pajama challenge.  This week's hipster hostess with the mostess is Joanne and she does the color challenge.  This month it's to use use golden yellow, lime and raspberry.  It sounds yummy doesn't it, kind of like sherbet.  I combined it with Jen's A Sketch for You to Try and that made it almost easy peasy.  The hardest part was picking a stamp, they're all so stinking cute. 

Here's the deets:
Stamps - image The Cat's Pajamas "You Say It's Your Birthday"; sentiment The Cat's Pajamas  "Smells Like Cake"
Ink - Brilliance Graphite Black for the image; Memento Tuxedo Black for the sentiment; Ranger Shabby Shutters sponged on the white cs edge
Paper - SU Yo Yo Yellow  ad Rich Razzleberry cs; SU "Cottage Walls" striped dsp; SEI "Kitty's Place" dp
Miscellaneous - SU markers; Sulky variegated green thread; Nestibilities; Prima Flowers; Recollections mini brads (flower centers); yellow hot fix crystals (card corners); purple hot fix crystals (on yellow cs corners); Favorite Findings "Butterfly Wings" buttons (you have to clip off the shank, and it's much more purpley in real life)
Here's the challenges:
I {Heart} to Stamp - ASFYTT - sketch
The Cat's Pajamas - TCPTUES117 - colors:  golden yellow, lime and raspberry
