Happy For You–Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger!


Hello Stamping Friends!!


Happy Easter!!  I hope that your day has been enjoyable so far and that you’ve had some lovely family time.  We went to church and out to breakfast with my mother-in-law, and I’ve been in my stamp cave ever since.  That’s my answer to a perfect day!  How about you?

Tuesday Trigger Happy For You

I’m popping in really quick today to share a card that I created for a couple of reasons.  First, it’s for this week’s Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger, a weekly inspiration challenge sponsored by Paper Crafts Magazine’s Trend Editor, Cath Edvalson.  She alwaysSweet Surprise finds the most amazing photographs to inspire us, and this week’s trigger is no exception.  I was inspired, of course by that amazing gingham bow, but decided against using gingham ribbon.  I also took inspiration from the delicious embossed texture of the white box – it reminded me of doilies or Battenburg lace.  So I still have the “white space” with the clean and simple design, but I’ve included the inspirational elements in a different configuration.


I also created this for a sweet young lady that I’ve recently become acquainted with.  She and I have discovered that we have several things in common, despite our age difference (age is only a number, right?!).  On Friday, she was announced as one of Paper Crafts Magazine’s 2012 Stamping Royalty and I am so incredibly thrilled for her – almost as thrilled as I was the day I got the same email a year ago.  She oozes with amazing talent and creativity.  So, I thought I’d drop this in the mail to her to let her know how over-the-moon happy I am for her.  If you want to drop by and share some love with her, you can find her blog here:  Parker & Molly.  Prepare to be blown away!!  Congratulations, Heather!


That’s it for today, peeps.  I’ll be back tomorrow with a goodie that I threw together for i {heart} papers.  See you then!!
