We hope to see you in the gallery!

Tammy-2

Few designers have made as big an impression on me as Tammy Hershberger.

THMagic

Her beautifully colored images and fearlessness with color and pattern have had me stopping in my tracks to take a second, third, and fourth look.

C4C98-2And, she has a playfulness that I just love.

THheartShe has so many cards that I’ve cased, I’m a little embarrassed to admit the number.

TBwashi

Check out this card that uses NO patterned paper. It’s ALL washi tape. Just brilliant.

CTD190And, her scissor work? Amazing.

I’m so happy, she is joining The Cat Pack. I can’t wait to see what she does next.

February 2015

We had so many GREAT entries last month for our TCP Tuesday Challenges. But, I could only pick just one.

It’s February, and the month for LOVE! What better card to choose than one that celebrates the month. And, in so grand a fashion. This card by Brenda Nakandakari is bling at its finest. She glittered up the wings of the bunny and dotted sequins here and there for a bit of shine. Then, layered up the Heart Trio and tucked it behind the Cupid Bunny for even more sparkle. Bling on Valentine’s Day or any day? Yes, please!

Here are some other cards that deserve attention. And, a lot of it, too.

Sharon Poleski wowed me with this wonderfully whimsical card. Beautifully colored, this card using Take Off just makes me smile.

And my smile just got bigger and bigger with this sweet card from Linsey Rickett. Love the paper pieced sock monkey and the additional color that she added to the sentiment.

TCP_Challenge_Jan_2015_edited-1_by_summerthyme64Vicki Garrett deserves a BIG shout out for her Snow Days card. She put the Snowflake Lace Paper die behind and used several of the snowflakes for embellies. Her coloring is Awesome!

tcpt281

The last card is by Joyce Casaldi! The set she used is Besties and the her card just screams SPRING! What a beautiful way to welcome it.

Wendy Bond

I am the worst at keeping secrets. But, for a couple of months, I’ve been sitting on a doozy! I’ve just been bursting at the seams wanting to tell you that one of my favorite designers is joining The Cat Pack.

jan14a copyWho is it? WENDY BOND! SQUEEEE!

Her bold, yet whimsical style is what first caught my eye. Or… perhaps it was her awesome coloring and color sense. Or, maybe it was the sense of humor that came out in her cards. And on her blog, Bond Girl Bliss. Okay! You got me! It was all of the above. She’s the complete package.

006 copyShe took a little time off from stamping and now she’s Baaaaaaaaccckkkk! And, I’m so glad she is joining us.
