Trigger Tuesday Moxie Fab

Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday
Retirement can be all citrus happy! I have this lime green polka dot paper (big surprise) and with those cupcake paper liners I knew I had to do something, So we now see what is on my sub conscience mind. I took the picture with a flash but it washed it so this is with no flash. That lacy edge nestabilities die is getting a work out a real must have.
I stamped the sentiment twice to get the circle effect, placed another circle layer of card stock towards the center placed those ever so beautiful card stock ribbon die to work and stamped the partner sentiment. Black buttons with lime green hemp to finish it off.

Simple Scallops

A Simply Scalloped Birthday Card
Not a lot fluff here just a simple birthday card. I used these tiny stickers around the scallops, that look like diamonds in a gold setting, they really shine. There is a vellum leaf below the birthday sentiment to add some interest.
That is all for today

Circus Day

Circus Fun
These images come from KandCompany. I know these would make great kids cards. Such fun images. The first card all paper (gasp no stamping!) the ringmaster just holding the banner happy happy! The high five card has the friendliest clown nothing creepy here! I used paper buttons to get the buttoned look without the bulk. Lastly the tricky tiger wishing a Happy Birthday. The circus thing is going to get bigger so I am starting my big show now. I still have a few of this images to go.

I saw these stamps and love them so much. They are just so fun and happy!! So I created these cards and they are just so much fun and will bring smiles to the recipients when delivered. The tomatoes are my favorite. They are the happiest tomatoes I know! I used the heart stamps (in Vegtastic) to make my shamrock.
I hope enjoy the cards as I have making them.

It was that chair the rustic country feel sent me right to the Cosmo Cricket - Wanted line. Paired with Ocean Tide color card stock from PTI was just the right shade.I knew I wanted flowers so I chose these Friendly flowers from Paper Smooches inked in the orange and cranberry tones. A sutler sentiment twisted below to outline the label die cut finished my card. I found those tiny tinny mosaic squares for added little touch.
Hope you enjoy

All Cozy

Unity Monthly Challenge
The challenge was to use hearts..I could do that! This fire place stamp is from Jolly Little Winter
set. On the stamp those are mittens drying in front of the fire place so I changed them to hearts a punch from Stampin Up fit the bill here. I also used some glossy accents for the flames after it was paper pieced. The sentiment is from the Comfy Cozy set. Can just dream of sitting in front of a warm fire place with your sweetie! I drew base of the fire place out with the lightest gray copic marker. Pattered paper by Cosmo Cricket (Chemistry) placed on orange zest by PTI. That ribbon is 1inch silk by Creative Impressions.

Practicing Creativity Sketch Challenge
Its a new release coming up so they offering THREE stamps sets to their winner. I had to try and besides this sketch was reasonable (Mojo Monday looked bit complicated this week). I fit the hot air balloon on Bo Bunny paper to read the sentiment then cut it out. I stamped the celebrate several times in different color inks to add some interest.
