I was in New England last week for another family funeral ~
that's the sad news. But, the happy news is, I finally was able to meet up with my sweet friend Cath Edvalson. She has been there for me on a personal basis through emails and FB messages at the most difficult time in my life, plus her daily inspiration on MFW has helped me get back to (and enjoying) crafting. I didn't think it was possible for someone to be as Moxie Fabulous and just so genuine, but Cath truly is!! Luv Ya, GF
On to the crafty end of this post...my trip was planned rather suddenly, so when I got home, there were lots of cards to make and mail out for birthdays, anniversaries and thinking of yous this week. Yay...mission accomplished :-p
So today I am trying to meet a couple of challenge deadlines ~ yes, that would be Sunday and Monday.
This card is for the Moxie Fab World-Minty Fresh Challenge which you can check out HERE and still join in until Monday. There are so many gorgeous mint green inspiration photos to choose from, I may have to whip up a couple of cards for this one.
|Picked the mint green chapel - for the buildings on my card|
This second card is for MIM #80, watch the video by Ashley Cannon Newell HERE
I bought this 3-in-1 Leaf punch and some other crafty goodies (like 30 extra pounds in my suitcase) on my trip to MA.
I miss you AC Moore~the closest one to me in FL is 200 miles away! :(
My card ~
Cardstock: Stamper's Select white from PTI; double sided blue/polka dot from The Teaching Tree; leaves punched out of various scraps and book printed pages were used as the back part of each leaf which I glued together over the twine
