The Cat's Pajama Blog Hop

I can't believe the sneaky peeks are over.  It was so much fun playing along with the Cat Pack.  I can't thank Miss Meowy enough.  She really is the Cat's Pajamas.

Of course if the sneaky peaks are done that means the stamps are going to be released today.  Now Alma is on the west coast and she hosted a party last night so if you're sitting at your computer on the east coast in the early hours of the morning don't be surprised if the new stamps aren't there yet, give her a little time and come back later.   In the meantime enjoy the bloghop.

The hop starts at Alma's blog Dancing in Pajamas.  So if you just popped in here without being on the hop why don't you join us now.  Pop on over to Alma's and follow along to see what the design team and the Swanky Stampers have created for this special event.

If you are following along you got here from the fabulous Noelle's blog Paper and Ice.  When you leave here you're going to Kimberly's blog It's So Pretty!  It's So Cute!

I made this as part of my daughter's birthday present and she actually liked it.  If you have a teenager you know how hard it can be to get things right.  Inside the bag there's a chocolate cupcake with chocolate icing, her favorite.  Since the cupcake is in a plastic case I sliced up some of the dp and put it in the bag for color.  

For some occasions a cupcake with a pretty tag is just the perfect gift but sometimes you need a little more.  My daughter's birthday called for more so I flipped over the tag, covered it with dp and then attached a gift card envelope to it.  

Here's the deets:
stamp - the Cat's Pajamas - One Cupcake
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"
paper - Close To My Heart "Chantilly"
Miscellaneous - copics; the Cat's Pajamas "Bitty Banners", "Apron border", "Gift Card Envie" Cut Ups; hole punch; ribbon;  brads

Thanks for stopping by.  Now it's time for you to hop over to Kimberly's blog.
