Moxie Fab Cityscapes!

Hola Chicas!!

How are you?!  I’ve been creating like a fool lately, but can’t show you most of what I’ve made just yet.  I still have a few Go-To Sketches for Cardmakers 2 rejects to share with you, which I’ll do in the next few days.  But today I’m here to share a card I made up for the latest Moxie Fab World challenge – Cityscapes Are On the Rise.  I promise not to go on and on about how much I adore the Moxie Fab World Challenges – I know you’ve heard it all before.  But it bears repeating just one more time – Cath has her finger on the pulse of current trends and when she presents a challenge, I MUST obey!  LOL

Celebrate With Style Moxie Fab

So today’s card features a fun little cityscape image from Stampabilities that I happened to pick up at Hobby Lobby ON SALE!  Woohoo!!  The color scheme was inspired by the Moxie Fab World blog header, although I’m not sure I really captured all the amazing dimension represented in that graphic.  The rays were created with the super fun Practicing Creativity Designs clear set called You’re Dandy.  The sentiment is from Big & Bold Wishes by Papertrey Ink.  The cityscape image was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with black ZING embossing powder.  The rays were stamped with Pool pigment ink from Fresh Ink – ADORE that stuff!!  Easy peasy!!

There’s still a few days left before the challenge is up, so you really should play along.  You can find all the details HERE, and the deadline is March 28th.  I have a couple more ideas in my head but I may not have time to implement them before the challenge expires because I’ve got a very busy social schedule the next couple of weeks.  Today I’m lunching with the best shortbread cookie maker known to man (no, SERIOUSLY!), and Saturday I’m throwing a bachelorette party for one of the sweetest and most talented girls I know.  Then there’s the matter of a mani pedi next Thursday, the rehearsal dinner next Friday, and what no doubt will be the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever had the pleasure of being a part of on Saturday.  So you see, I’m a very busy chica these days!!

Thanks for stopping by today – I so appreciate you all!!  Hope you have a great day!
