TCP Tuesday says: Happy Birthday, Alma!

Today's TCP Tuesday is a special one! We've put together a jam-packed blog hop to celebrate Alma's birthday, so get ready for some "woody" birthday wishes from the TCP design team past and present, along with TCP friends! Yes, you read that correctly: woody wishes; my idea of a segue to our supply challenge this week.

I challenge you to incorporate some sort of wood-like element in your creation, for instance: wood grain paper, stamps, impression plates, or a stamp like the tree stump from Happy Camper, or the wood floor from Tutu Much.

For my fun loving birthday card for Alma, I chose a piece of wood grain paper from Cosmo Cricket from which I free hand cut a tree stump. Sadly, I have more felt on my card than wood, but sometimes I just go with the wind, and this was one of those times (no pun intended)!

Here's a little peek at the opposite side of the card...

Don't forget to stop at Alma's blog and wish her a big ol' Happy Birthday as well. Tracy is next on the hop, so when you're done here, hop on over to her blog. Lastly, we've got updated "deets" for our TCP Tuesday challenges, so please read below to make sure you're in the running for all the swanky prizes as you play along...

TCP Tuesday Details:

2. The challenges will vary {stamp, technique, color, theme, sketch, etc.}

6. There will be one winner each month. They will be deemed that month’s Swankiest Stamper and get $25 in Cat’s Cash {money to spend on the TCP site!}.
