Moxie Fab World Trigger Valentine

This is the Moxie Fab World Tuesday trigger and I found inspiration in the colors and the pretty strings of colorful circles. I made my inspiration into a Valentine just because I am obsessed with them this week!!! I used stickers and chipboard hearts from K&Co along with Baker's Twine and a heart button. Toooo simple and just tooo fun!!!


This is a Victorian style Valentine using diecuts from K&CO along with lace, ribbon, button, twine, and a heart stick pin. Lace sponging (using lace as a stencil, sponge Fresh Snow ink over it to create the lace design in the background) was done on the kraft cardstock and the ticket is the sentiment.
I took down a few Christmas decorations yesterday and then went to my parents home to dismantle their Christmas village...Mom and Dad have the Dicken's houses and they look sooo pretty all lit up in the evening!!
Have a great Saturday and be sure to do something fun today.....call a friend, bake some cookies, cuddle a baby.....make a difference to someone special!!!!

Joan I feel so uplifted after reading your blog today, I love the little bit at the end about doing something fun today, I will try I promise. I could write loads about what I like about your cards today, the card from the photo trigger is superb, you really picked up the colours and the strings of circles as the string of hearts. And the Victorian valentine is a beautiful project, you always manage to produce a couple of different styles in each post. Have a fun Saturday yourself, oh and thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. CoB
