Moxie Fab with Felt

Howdy friends!!!  Wow - I must say that the summer has been flying by.  School starts Monday and I've got a list 2 miles long of projects I've put on hold while I've been entertaining hanging out with the kids.

So, I was looking at some inspiration blogs for ideas to continue my Christmas card collection, and I found it at Moxie Fab World!  Using felt in an innovative way.... I thought of snowflakes!  I used my Limitless Layers Die from Papertrey Ink, got some stamps and begin playing!  Love it when a card comes together without a real plan - just plain ol' inspiration!  Oh yeah - and since its been ridiculously hot, thinking of snow just makes me feel a bit cooler, right?

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like.....

Christmas!!  Well, in my studio that is - with all the Christmas cards I've been making!  I'm still a tad behind on the 5 per month, but I think when school starts back up in *two* weeks, I'll be able to spend more time working on them.  Nichole at Papertrey Ink has a REALLY.COOL technique using ribbon and Copic markers (but you could use other kinds of markers too).  Check it out here and then play along too!!

Check out how my card turned out!!

I really love it!  I *almost* want to keep it for myself - but a picture will have to do for me because I love to share them more than I love to keep them!

Thanks for stopping by today - have a fabulously crafty day!
