Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger

Good morning everyone...hope all is well with you and yours today!!! We have been staying inside much of the time the last few days because of the 100+ degree weather...it even got up to 106 one day...yikes!!! Have you been watching the Pillars of the Earth mini series??? We don't get the channel it's on but borrowed some copies....I read the book series by Ken Follett and it's wonderful!!! Anyway....on to the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger...don't ya just love the colors on this beautiful box!!!
I found my inspiration from the colors and the drawers....I used papers from Stampin Up! and Basic Grey's Marrakeck for the blocks in the background and the wood bird cage and bird from Kaisercraft. The brads and ribbon finish it off.
Recipe:
Papers: Basic Grey's Marrakech, Stampin Up dp, Metallic Silver, Really Rust
Accessories: Kaisercraft Wood Bird Cage and Bird, Ribbon, Brads

Splitcoast's Sketch Challenge and Queen for the Day #22 Challenge

I used the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast to create a card for our Queen for the Day challenge......none other than the wonderful and ooooh sooo famous Cindy (Mothermark)!!! I can't think of anyone more deserving of this honor...she has the biggest heart of any stamper I know and is a sweetheart to boot!! Don't tell her I said that cause she tends to get a case of the big head so mum is the word!! Now, I gotta tell ya, her gallery is like no other....check it out here. She is a one of a kind artist and there is noooo way this humble stamper could ever case one of her masterpieces and do it justice so I used lots of polka dots (Cindy's trademark) and a teapot to represent her two years of teapot challenges. I know, I know...I took the easy way out but since I am old and feeble, I can get away with it...LOL!!!
The teapot from Papertrey Ink's Tea For Two set was stamped with Pretty in Pink and rock n rolled with Regal Rose. It was then run through the cuttlebug with the Dotted Swiss folder. Another teapot image was stamped with Pretty in Pink, rock n rolled, cutout, and popped up over the other image with dimensionals. Lace, ribbon, button, and silver cording finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink's Tea For Two
Paper: White, Black, Pink Pirouette, scraps of dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose
Accessories: Ribbon, Lace, Button, Silver Cording, Foam Tape
Thanks for visiting today....since I have been playing all morning, I better get busy on this messy house and visit some of my favorite blogs....have a wonderful day and stay cool!!!!
