It's the last day - Day 7 - of The Cat's Pajamas' Sneaky Peek Week, which means the seven Limited Edition Rubber Cling stamp sets and all of the new CutUps dies1 will be released after tonight's Pajama Party2 - hope to see you there!
What's today's SNEAKY PEEK SET, you ask? Well, you came to the right place because - as I'm sure you know - I have ALL of the answers to life's most pressing questions3. Here's you're official lookie-loo of the brand new set known as THE MAN:
Of course, being Monday, it's also time for that be-all/end-all sketch challenge we know and love as MOJO MONDAY! Here's this week's yummy Mojo sketch, created by the Verve-ilicious Julee Tilman. And, because it's the last Monday o' the month, we give you the option of ROUND or SQUARE...
I colored his sweetness in with Copic markers, then frosted him with a Viva Black Pearl pen on his black currant eyes, a Viva Ice White Pearl pen on his white squiggled frosting, Cranberry Dimensional Pearls on his mouth, and green Liquid Applique on his tie. His peppermint buttons were given a coat of Glossy Accents for shine. He's quite the dapper dough boy, don't you think?
For more takes on THE MAN from the Cat Pack, head over to the Winter Sneaky Peek # 7 thread on our Splitcoaststamper's Member Company forum. And, while there, let us know what you think of this set in the In It To Win It thread to be eligible to win THE MAN for F-R-E-E!
And, of course, you'll want to make your way to the Mojo Monday blog for all of the details on how to play along with this week's sketch. For inspiration, you can't do better than visiting my fabulous fellow Mojo Makers:

1. Here's the official word on the new CutUps dies being released: There are Five CutUps Dies in this release. Along with some "classics" that belong in every die collection, we are so excited to introduce our "Toppers" line. They are shapes that you can use the positive and negatives of to create borders and panels. They are open-ended so that you can create panels of any size using the toppers. You can place them individually or use them together. Endless possibilities!
3. Sometimes I think I should just give up stamping and crafting and all my random chatter and transform this into an advice blog, a la Dear Abby. If you've got a question you want me to apply my infinite reserves of wisdom to, don't hesitate to drop me a line and I will answer you via blog post. Seriously! As I tell my children to the point they want to punch me, I am centuries old and very wise - you could do worse than to listen to me! ;)
