Oh my, how time flies...

Hi folks -

Sorry it's been so long! I had a blast in Atlanta, and I've already started scrapping my trip...but we'll get to that soon enough. Today is all about a card -- a Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger card, to be (very) specific! You can read all about the challenge here.

The inspiration image was, well, extra-inspiring! Take a look:

I was so inspired, in fact, that I made the card right away, but had to wait for a little sunny-ish daylight to get a photo. Here you go:

Supplies: Papertrey Ink Love Lives Here die, Birds of a Feather and Gingham stamps, Vintage Cream cs; A Muse studio Ovalicious stamp, gingham cs, and papaya ribbon; SU Real Red, Garden Green, and Tempting Turquoise inks; glitter.

I just love the colors in the original image. So happy. I got to break out some of my newest goodies here: the PTI die and gingham stamp,  plus some very fab, even newer goodies from a muse studio -- I used Ovalicious for the oval (surprise!), plus some gingham cardstock and pretty papaya ribbon (thanks for that, Meg!).

I even broke out the glitter -- the real, makes-a-mess-that-lasts-forever kind. See?:

Happy little heart. Oh, by the way, that house? I die-cut it from coaster. Not the pay-for-it kind, but one from my favorite local watering hole. Seems to work fine for me, and it was free!

Well, Cath, you picked a great one this week -- I might even have to make another -- maybe something ruffly or ric-rac-y or flowery...hmm...wheels are turning!

Anyway, welcome back to the old blog -- I have a few more things to show you soon since I feel compelled to make up for lost time -- and I hope you're having a lovely day!

Saaaaah-weet! What a fabulous card for the trigger picture!! I love that gingham/glittered house and your use of ovalicious. The papaya ribbon for the sunrays is genius! Should have kept some for myself! ;)

Bring on the fabulous creations! Can't wait to see them. :)

I love your take on the inspiration photo. There are so many things to be inspired by. The glittery heart is fabulous and worth the mess. ;)

Glad to hear you enjoyed Atlanta! Have a great weekend.
