It's a Moxie Fab Day

Moxie Fab World has been celebrating Paper Crafts latest release issue 350 Cards & Gifts and Cath has set out a bunch of challenges to get into the spirit of the issue. And since it's Oldie Moldie Monday where we give love to those long forgotten supplies, all of the products that I've used today have been in my stash for years. It feels great to use up old supplies. I made 2 cute little sets of Thank You for the Card Sets challenge. The 2x2" mini envelope die is from Sizzix.

The paper for the envelopes for this set is from a paper pad that is from Sizzix....from many moons ago. But it's so cute and perfect for these little envelopes. The 'thanks' stamp is from Stampin' UP!

Next is a little pillow box for the Gift Wrap Challenge. The pillow box die is from Sizzix, ribbon is from Offray, buckle is from Rusty Pickle (I've been hoarding it for years!) and the pearls are from Kaisercraft.

Finally, Amy Tsuruta has started a new blog Flashback Friday where we get to go back and revisit some of our past creations (the good, the bad and the ugly!)...perfect to fit in with today's Oldie Moldie Monday theme. The challenge this week is to find the first project with stitching on it.

I had to go digging deep...I don't even know what year this was, probably 2005. Sewing and I don't really get along too well and this is the only card I could come up with with stitching on it.

Thanks for coming by today. See you soon,

Catching up...

So, it's been a while. Life gets busy and somehow the cardmaking gets pushed to the back burner. We've recently been out to Edmonton for my uncle's funeral. It was a very sad occasion to go home for, but the great family connection that we felt during our visit was so wonderful. Most importantly, we got to spend time with my 2 1/2 year old nephew...even got to shop at West Edmonton Mall with much fun. Now to catch up with everything that's been going on here. I was able to play along with a couple of challenges. The first one is for this week's sketch at Card Patterns.

The paper and ribbon are from Stampin' UP, sticker flower is from SRM, rub on sentiment is from Deja Views, blue label is from K&Co, and the doily is from Martha Stewart.

Next is this weeks color challenge at The Play Date Cafe.

Here's a quick Easter card.

The image is from Somewhere in Time Collage.

And another quick Easter card using an image from Somewhere in Time Collage again.

Thanks so much for dropping in. I love hearing from you.
