There are lots of interesting shapes, edges and colors in this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger. When I see these triggers, I usually am pretty literal in the translation into a card. So this week's trigger made me giddy. My daughter is picking out pillows for her new couch and the shapes and colors have made my mind dance. Guess that is why I had a good time making this card. Just took scraps of my recent projects, which closely matched the patterns of the different fabrics, found a sketch that would help my recent loss of mojo and my card came together. Why not head on over to the Moxie Fab blog and give this trigger a try?

Kept thinking about last week's Tuesday Trigger but I didn't get a chance to put it on paper until today. I just love the colors of all those spools of thread. Guess those thoughts intermingled with the upcoming hot air balloon festival that will be here in town in a few weeks and this is what happened. I took my new hot air balloons stamp from Impression Obsession, Inc (thanks, Glenda) and made some fun balloons. Cut them out from different colored paper and then cut out just the balloon part and popped it up. Then I put Stickles on parts of each balloon. Turned out to be a fun, sparkly card. Hopefully I will get this week's trigger finished much quicker. Check out last week's cards if you get a chance. You won't be disappointed.

This week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger was a little outside my comfort zone. I love the white vase with pink flowers and the white headboard. Beautiful! The blue and white background, not so much. I tried to mimic that background with my Stampin' Up! Toile Blossoms set. White ribbon with a white paper background made a nifty headboard. Used my silver sticker paper for the center of my "starburst" and put my flowers in the center. Liked the card but it didn't look finished to me so I pulled out my sparkly zigzag sticker strip and just went with it. Seemed a little busy for my usual taste but I liked it. It is good to step out of the box sometimes. I'd love to see what you do with this week's trigger so stop by the Moxie Fab World blog and give it a try.
