One more for the Moxie!!

I had one more idea for a "sew excited" challenge at Moxie Fab World and here it is in all it's CAS glory!

It's not exactly how I had pictured it but sometimes that happens! And the reason behind one more card is I REALLY wanted to use that pin cushion stamp but couldn't get it to work with the other cards! I think it's just so darn cute! Anywho, I think I have worn this challenge out...I just really got into this one!

PS...sorry for the still not so fab photos, STILL using my phone camera because my charger for my camera camera has yet ot be located :( BOO! May have to bite the bullet and buy a new one!


A Moxie-licious SEW fab challenge...

Cathy always has the BEST challenges running in the Moxie Fab World and I can never resist playing along!

As I type a fantastic challenge I'm Sew Excited!! is going on! Sew, that means sewing machines, scissors, thread and needle, pin cushions, dress forms...whatever you can think of you USE to sew with can be incorporated into your project! I went a little crazy and made 3 cards already...with a fourth in the works!! So here are the first 3 and I think it's funny going from one shabby vintagey style to CAS haha!

How's that for some sewing love!! Hope you are having a fantabulous weekend!!

Another CAS challenge at TOL!

Sunday's mean the CAS challenge goes up at The Outlawz and man do I LOVE it!!

And it is a long process but a definite GOOD one! I LOVE doing it and am so blessed to be on this design team with every one of these caring and sweet ladies!

Ok onto the challenge, RECIPE TIME! Stripes, Green, and Button(s)
