Heart Swanky Stamper for August

<b><span style="color: #3d85c6;"><a href="http://lindastamps4sanity.blogspot.com/">Linda Nicholson— Swanky Stamper for September</a></span></b>

The August TCP Tuesday Challenge was to design a card that fits in a long, tall envie. There were lots of great cards, but this one by Linda Nicholson just had me laughing. It's a motion card using <b><span style="color: #3d85c6;">"<a href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/August2013.htm#FlyHigh">Fly High</a>"</span></b> and some of our past stamp sets. She debossed the red planet for craters. What is so great is the bit of Divine Twine she used to anchor the bunnynaut to the rocket ship. Just brilliant!

<a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-QHw6DL1X-Mk/UiTjjBzax9I/AAAAAAAAD3s/ZkEpcvAYIO8/s1600/9642685796_d6d90dfe12_m.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-QHw6DL1X-Mk/UiTjjBzax9I/AAAAAAAAD3s/ZkEpcvAYIO8/s1600/9642685796_d6d90dfe12_m.jpg" /></a>

Here is a closeup of him in motion. Adorable, no? No? Yes!

Here is a second entry that Linda did for this challenge using "<b><span style="color: #3d85c6;"><a href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/August2013.htm#UnderTheStars">Under the Stars</a></span></b>". I am in love with the mix of CutUps that she layered at the bottom of the card for a wonderful look.

<a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-MrZE9O-fc38/UiTjwnw5vqI/AAAAAAAAD30/o6R_Wp4jEwQ/s1600/DSC_0011-WM.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-MrZE9O-fc38/UiTjwnw5vqI/AAAAAAAAD30/o6R_Wp4jEwQ/s320/DSC_0011-WM.jpg" width="186" /></a>

And speaking of layers, <b><a href="http://christinecreations.blogspot.ca/2013/08/missing-you.html"><span style="color: #3d85c6;">Christine Okken</span></a></b> created this rich and fabulous card. I adore her coloring and her choice of beautiful paper. The fishtail banners and the border is just a wonderful play on the theme in "<b><span style="color: #3d85c6;"><a href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/HareToday.htm">Hare Today</a></span></b>"

<a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-mS632gYWGAc/UiTjwp_eUWI/AAAAAAAAD34/zuvy2YgogAQ/s1600/OhChute1_thumb.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-mS632gYWGAc/UiTjwp_eUWI/AAAAAAAAD34/zuvy2YgogAQ/s320/OhChute1_thumb.jpg" width="151" /></a>

And <b><span style="color: #3d85c6;"><a href="http://mycasestudies.blogspot.com/2013/08/oh-chute.html">Maureen Wong</a></span></b> created this delightful pull card using "<b><span style="color: #3d85c6;"><a href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/OhChute.htm">Oh Chute</a></span></b>". This is one that I will definitely be casing.

<a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-86GJKgxeVjg/UiTjxNErW2I/AAAAAAAAD4E/1tsBYChUpYk/s1600/OhChute1b_thumb%5B1%5D.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-86GJKgxeVjg/UiTjxNErW2I/AAAAAAAAD4E/1tsBYChUpYk/s400/OhChute1b_thumb%5B1%5D.jpg" width="136" /></a>

There is even a place for writing! LOVE!</div>

Tomorrow there will be a NEW TCP Tuesday Challenge. Come back tomorrow and see what it is.</div>

Sqeel! OMG....I am totally excited...my kids are looking at me like I have lost my rocker. KJ...kindly ship the crown....stat....to Colorado Springs (you know the address).

Now there's the anticipation of not knowing what swanky goodness lies ahead! I feel like a kid at Christmas!

WOOHOOO!!! Congrats Linda!!

Good Luck getting the crown from KJ. I'm pretty sure she has that thing welded to her head.
