Moxie Fab Challenge - Doilies

Please click here to get a close-up of this picture...
Okay, once again I am camera-less and at the mercy of my phone. Fortunately with the sun shining, I think it did my photos a world of good today. Today's card showcases the Moxie Fab Challenge of using doilies as a focal point. I love the way this doilie challenge turned out so bright and cheery and screaming for a few jelly beans. Using a Unity Stamp as the focal point to celebrate Easter, I am happy that the colors just pop here. I think this is one I will duplicate and send to my special friends to celebrate spring. Thanks for stopping by.

March Madness

Happy March everyone. I am happy to see the snow melting and would be happier if the sun would start to peek through the clouds again. In the meantime, I'll keep crafting to try and keep my spirits up. Moxie Fab offered up another challenge to use floss in an unusual or unique way. It reminded me of my quilting days and some of the redwork patterns from old quilts. I decided to to a braiding/stitching technique that I used when I was teaching sewing classes. Got my hands on the new American Crafts papers and had to play with the hanging dress stamp as a pattern. I wish my camera and the lighting were better...maybe since my birthday is this month I can talk someone into a new gift....fingers crossed. Until then, enjoy and think warm thoughts.
