Are you doing Moxie Fab's Blog 350 Cards and Gifts Challenge?

Moxie Fab's Blog challenges are so darn fun!  Here's another I completed, inspired by the gift of giving.  Moxie Fab's Blog Cards and Gifts Challenge Link, here is the link, why don't you play along?  There's plenty of time, April 21 is the deadline.  I created this gift bag using patterned paper by Pink Paislee, Little Yellow Bicycle and Bo Bunny.  I created the flower using a kit, and of course incorporated SRM's rockin' sticker into the project as well!  (Make a wish sticker, from SRM Sticker Sentiments #51003 Happy Birthday)  Come join the fun!

Are you doing Moxie Fab's Blog Tuesday Trigger? A Burst of Blooms!

Loving these triggers.  Getting cards made quickly and easily!  Here's the Moxie Fab Challenge Link, come join the fun!  The challenge ends April 10th!  I loved this challenge, the bold colors, the floral images, the thread, inspired me to make this card!  I NEVER sew on my cards.  It's not that I haven't wanted to.  But this challenge got me moving and sewing, and I loved the texture the thread created on the card!  It felt like I was touching Cath's trigger picture, with the soft yarn.  I used three different patterned paper lines, including Pink Paislee, and Crate Paper.  I love mixing paper lines and designs!  The soft green bloom again I incorporated for the "touching" factor.  Of course I had to use stickers from SRM, which I adore, the "make a wish" is from Sticker Sentiments #51003 Happy Birthday and the "30" is from We've Got Your Number #48095 Extra Large.  (aren't these large numbers so fun?!) 

Wow! Karen Yarko has completed Sketch 11!! Oh wow, she's fast!!

Love, Karen's card!  It is so springlike, with the adorable bees and flowers!  Love the sentiment too, "just because", and that cute little bee!  Karen, first of all, you rock, for doing the challenge!  Second of all, you super rock for doing the challenge so fast!  Third of all, your card is so wonderful, I adore your color combo. and design!  YOU are the best!!  Please join Karen in making a card for Sketch 11!  She has me motivated now to not wait to the last minute to create my card, thanks, Karen!!

Are you doing Moxie Fab's Blog hot air balloon challenge!?

I had FUN with this one!  I created this card using Teresa Collins' fab paper, (esp. love the one that looks like fishnet stockings!), a balloon cut from awesome Echo Park patterned paper (fussy cut, around the balloon cords), cardstock, scallop trimmer, Making Memories striped button, Tonic trimmer, dimensional adhesive, Century Gothic and Festus! fonts, scissors, and of course super cool SRM stickers from the We've Got Your Sticker #53003 Sweet collection!  Had fun pointy cutting the "fishnet" paper and rolling the edges too!  Thanks for looking!  And there is still time for you to do the balloon challenge too, it ends on midnight April 18th!  Here's the Moxie Fab Link go to it!

Another quick and easy card sketch, sketch 11!

My take on Sketch 10! Please join me!

Woohoo, my crafting energy has been restarted, and here is my take on Sketch 10!  Please join me, you have all weekend!  Just load sometime on Monday, or early next week.  I will post Sketch 11 sometime early next week!  I used Echo Park Paper "Be Mine" (so pretty!), and SRM Stickers We've Got Your Sticker #53003 Sweet, in white.  Do these stickers ROCK on black paper or what??!!!  They are so vivid, so easy to see, so striking!  I am very passionate about them!  I also used a Crate Paper circle, and some Creative Imaginations border.  Thanks for looking, and hope you will play along!

Are you doing Moxie Fab's Blog Tuesday Trigger? Are you doing the Play Date Cafe Challenge 75?

Had so much fun making a card using the Tuesday Trigger and Play Date Cafe Challenge!   It is so interesting to me how a photograph and colors can inspire a craft project!  I created a card using the Trigger and the card also meshed with the PDCC 75,  with patterned papers by The Girls Paperie, My Mind's Eye and LilyBee Design.  I also used Imaginisce floral making kit, Recollections paper flowers, Color Box ink, Crate paper border, EK Success punch, Tonic Trimmer, cardstock, Therm o Web adhesive, and of course, SRM Sticker Sentiments #51006 Thinking of You.  I loved the vertical line of the Trigger, as well as the color combo, and how cool, it is so similar to the PDCC color combo..!    Why don't you join the fun?!  Project submissions are due by April 3rd for the Trigger.  The deadline for the PDCC is Tuesday..  So there's plenty of time to create!  Moxie Fab Blog - Tuesday Trigger
