Get Inspired in the Kitchen Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

I hop from blog to blog just about every day and I went over to the Moxie Fab blog and saw this challenge.  For some reason it spoke to me.  Usually I don't do such bold or graphic cards, but I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this challenge.  I have the Home Accents Cricut Cartridge and I knew there was an image I could use to make a similar design on my card.  I am really happy on how it turned out.  Thanks for stopping by!

So Grateful!

I am certainly grateful for many people in my life.  I have a wonderful and caring family.  I have the BEST husband and three beautiful children.  I am certainly blest.

I also have wonderful neighbors.  We built our new home and moved in in less than a year and I feel like I have known our neighbors for years.  They are so awesome.  I felt that with the Thanksgiving holiday coming up, I would show them how much they mean to us with a little gift.  The challenge on the H2H blog fit right in with this gift.  I even made them today and gave them to them right when I was finished.  Can't beat that!

Finally getting around to posting one of the cards from my last hostess club this weekend.  We had a good time making cards and layouts.  I really look forward to my clubs.  I fret and stress about the cards and layouts I prepare, but in the is so worth it.  It is great to see friends and meeting new ones.  I met some awesome people since I started selling CTMH.

Mojo 214 and Hostess Club Card

Here is my Mojo Monday card on Friday!  Sometimes you just get your mojo later in the week! ;)

This card is also for my club members to make at the next meeting.  I am using up old paper because for some reason, I have a ton of this paper.  It really isn't one of my favorites, but the card turned out pretty enough.  I like it...

H2H Challenge: Metal Mania

I had a good time with this challenge.  I am using this card as one of the cards for my Hostess Club coming up.  I love the card on page 66 of the new CTMH Ideabook, so I had to give it a try.  I didn't have exactly the same papers in my stash, so I improvised.  I also went deep into my OLD stash of pre-CMTH embellishments and found these metal swirl clips.  Perfect for the challenge on the H2H blog.  Easy-peasy...that's what I love about the much inspiration in there.

All supplies are CTMH unless otherwise noted:  Paper:  Olivia Level 2 (retired);  Cardstock:  Colonial White and Olive;  Ink:  Goldrush, Sunset, Olive and Desert Sand;  Stamp set:  B1395 So Grateful;  Accessories:  Swirl clip and brads (unknown source);  Tools:  sand paper, sponge dauber, needle tool and pop dots.

Mojo Monday 213 and H2H Color Challenge

It has been over a week since my last post!  Time is flying by...which I am happy about.  Each day is a day closer to having my sweet man back home.

This card was certainly a challenge.  The color combo is pretty interesting and I kind of struggled with it.  I am not super happy with the result, but there are cards that just don't make me jump up and down with excitement when they are complete.  Ah well...

All supplies are CTMH unless otherwise noted:  Papers:  Wings Level 2 (retired) and Perfect Day Level 2 (retired);  Cardstock:  Colonial White, Bamboo, and Juniper;  Ink:  Desert Sand, Autumn Terracotta, and Juniper; Stamp sets:  B1306 Cottage Floral and D1475 Card Chatter- Birthday; Accessories:  Autumn Terracotta conchos, sparkles, Sparkle Flourish (Recollections);  Tools:  AP Cricut Cartridge, sand paper, and sponge dauber.
