Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

Howdy friends!  I'm here today to share a card I made to send a new friend of mine.  She and I are prayer partners at church and I just wanted to let her know I was thinking about and praying for her!  It just so happens that I came across a perfect color combination for this card on the Moxie Fab blog - check it out here.....!  This is the inspiration picture that was given to us:

Gorgeous, huh!

I adore how this card turned out - and it was super easy!!

Washi Tape??

Hmmm....ever heard of it?  No?  Me either until about a two weeks ago when I was taking an online Embossing Techniques class.  I figured it was something I didn't need to bother with - I mean, really!  Like I need to spend $$ on something else that is just a fad.  That is, until I came across Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday video series!  Custom stamped Washi Tape - AND - I already have what I need to make some for myself!!

So, if you're interested in this Washi Tape technique, go to Nichole Heady's blog right now (well, after you see what I did with it first!!).

I made yet another Christmas card (are ya tired of seeing them yet?!).  I am happy to report that I'm very close to being done!!  Yippee!  So, without further ado - or much ado about nothin' - here she is:

(All items are Papertrey Ink unless noted otherwise)
Cardstock (White, Scarlett Jewel)
Stamps (Background Basics: Sheet Music, Tiny Treats: Christmas)
Hybrid Ink (Vintage Cream, New Leaf, Dark Chocolate, Scarlett Jewell)

Shame On Me!

Howdy friends!  I am totally embarrassed at the date of the last time I posted!  Yikes!  I've been so busy doing projects of all kinds and have neglected posting pictures of anything I've done - but I hope to remedy that starting today.  My brain is totally in overload mode and I do have another card to share with you - but I'll get to that later.  Also, I've been crazy busy decorating for Fall and updating my 'formal' living room.  Can't wait to show you some of those things too.  I'll be back in a bit to share my card - gotta get to the gym for an hour!
