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.
I was so inspired by this week’s Moxie Fab Tuesday 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!!
