Some Moxie, a little Embellishing and a bit Off the Wall


HI!! Hope you are having a great weekend! Im enjoying mine, its spring break here so I took a few days off work to spend time with my daughter. I hope your enjoying your weekend or spring break too.

As you may have figured from the title of my post im here to share with you some cards I made for 3 challenges.

First is a card I did for Embellish Stitching Color Challenge on the
Embellishment Magazine blog... I loved using these colors together and my favorite paper right now is Kraft so I enjoyed making this card.


Supplies:
Paper: PTI kraft, sweet blush, aqua mist
Stamps: Inkadinkado, Hero Arts (butterfly)
Ink: Versamark, Memento
Accessories: PTI buttons, Pearls
Tech: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, Heat Embossing

Next card I did is for Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: Butterfly Dreams. Who doesnt love to dream about Butterflies? I LOVE butterflies as you can tell from my work, so I had to do this challenge. Well... I love all their challenges anyway! Love me some Moxie!


Supplies:
Paper: PTI plum pudding, DCWV PP
Stamps: Hero Arts (butterfly), TPC
Ink: Tim Holtz, Memento
Accessories: Melissa Frances lace, Pearls

And last but certainly not least is a card I did for my dear friend, Kim Wilson's challenge. I adore Kim and we found out that we live close to each other so we are anxious to take a class together at my local SS and get together for some crafty girl time. Cant wait to meet her! If you have a moment visit her blog, shes one sweet friend and you will just love her and her creations!



Supplies:
Paper: PTI Raspberry Fizz, K&Co.
Stamps: Hero Arts (butterfly), PTI Butterfly Dreams (saying)
Accessories: PTI ribbon, K&Co. Bling

Thats it for today! :) I also went to a local sale for a lady that refurbishes Shabby Chic decor and furniture, I found some super cute items! I got a cupcake stand, Shabby dress form stand, bookcase and shelf. I painted the shelves pink and put them in my craft room... one of them now houses my wood stamps. I was excited to get these, they are so chic!

And as soon as I get my PTI order I will post the next blog candy... PTI goodies will be in it! AND I will soon be posting a challenge that will be sponsored by WHIMSY HAVEN... you will have the chance to WIN some free goodies, check her out if you haven't already... her digital images are adorable!

Have a blessed Sunday! Supposed to be beautiful day tomorrow, around 80 degrees but then the rain will be back Wednesday.
