Hello Crafty Chicas!!
Wow – I can’t believe Christmas is only 8 days away!! Eeekk!! I’m pretty well ready, although I have a few smaller gifts to buy, and of course the stocking stuffers – gotta have stocking stuffers, right?! The person who invented online buying and free shipping is a hero in my eyes – no doubt it was a woman! LOL
I wanted to pop in really quick to share a card that I created for the Moxie Fab Get Inspired By Fashion Challenge. Houndstooth – it’s EVERYWHERE!! When I was in San Francisco in November, it was on all the window mannequins, and I’ve noticed it in all the stores while doing my Christmas shopping. Houndstooth literally rocks my world these days. *sigh* It just makes me happy. So I was thrilled to little bits when Cath posed this fashion challenge. How freakin’ cute is that little jacket? I was inspired by the pattern, the texture of the jacket, the clean classic lines, as well as the color palette.
I used a new LifeStyle Crafts Houndstooth Border die to create the houndstooth pattern at the bottom. I love the texture and dimension that it added when I popped it off the cardbase. The Pear Pizzazz and Vintage Cream color combo is so soft and feminine, and the satin lining inspired the Vintage Cream satin bow on the card. The little scalloped tag was inspired by the rounded collar on the jacket. See what I mean? Every aspect of that jacket just oozes inspiration for me!! Thanks, Cath, for another fabulous challenge!!
I have another card for the Moxie Fab Get Inspired Potpourri Challenge that I’ll share with you tomorrow. I’m actually in the midst of packing my suitcase for a quick trip to Seattle for the holidays. Can’t wait to love on my kids and my grandson – deLISH!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you’ll come by tomorrow, too. Until then, have a great day!!
