I’m Baaaaack – Moxie Fab Challenges!

Hi Peeps!

I got back from AZ on Tuesday night, and I’ve been catching up on my life ever since.  Wednesday evening, we went to the Seattle Mariners v. Chicago Whitesox game – the weather was perfect, the baseball was great, and I got to snuggle with my grandson the entire time.  Heaven on earth.  Yesterday was spent running errands, so today is the first day I’ve had a chance to play with my beloved and neglected stamps. Boy did it feel good to get back in my craft room after two weeks.

Dancing Lanterns
I was so inspired by this week’s Moxie Fab Tuesday TriggerTuesday Trigger Challenge that I just couldn’t help myself.  This is the first card that I created (WARNING:  I have a couple more ideas in my head for this one, so please bear with me – LOL).  I realize that  it’s pretty literal, but I love the dimension of the hanging lanterns, I love all the white space, I love the clean and graphic feel of it all, and I am IN LOVE with that twine.  I thought this would be a perfect dinner invitation, so it’ll be going in the mail to some very sweet friends just as soon as I get organized enough to have them over for dinner.

I’m on a creative roll, so I want to make this quick.  I think I’ll also submit this for the Clean & Graphic Challenge that Cath has going on over at her blog, as well – all in celebration of the new Card Style issue.  Have you seen it yet?  OMGosh – this issue is a TOTAL homerun!!  No joke!!  You really must get your hands on one pronto – you’ll be blown away by how inspiring it is.  Cath (Moxie Fab World) has challenged us to submit cards that represent our style.  I’m pretty sure that I’m a clean and graphic girl, but sometimes I’m a fun and cute girl, too.  You can find the details of the Card Style challenge HERE.

Okay, I’m off to do some more stamping.  I may be back tonight, but I’ll most certainly be back some time this weekend.  Thanks for stopping by!!
