My 1st Moxie Fab - Tuesday Trigger

Hi again! So, today I wanted to share another card that I made last weekend. Essentially, I made a 4 card set. I want to give them to my Grandma when she visits from NY in September. I just can’t wait to see her and give her these cards (two more of the set are in yesterday’s post - below this one). They're just her style!

I’ve always ALWAYS been a letter writer. Before I was even a card maker. My Grandma & I have been pen-pals since... well, literally forever! Ever since I was a little girl she’d mail me little boxes that contained note cards for me to write her back. I like it that now I write her letters on cards that I make and send her blank cards to write notes to others.

I essentially made a 4 card set. Again, I used My Minds Eye’s Lost & Found 6x6 paper pad to make it. Lots of Antique Linen Distress Inking going on here. I think this quilty card (yes...I make up words.. don’t you?!?) one is my all time fave cards. It took quite a little while to make - cut all of the squares (after trial & error... why do I not make my ruler my friend already?!?), then inked them up & glue them down. You get the idea. The bracket was cut from the Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge, and I paper pieced the Lawn Fawn Sew Lovely Sewing Machine ;). I decided on the Rustic Papertrey Ink Twine & it's accents last - and I am so happy I did! I love what it, paired with the mini butterflies and pearls, adds to the card. Pretty!
Here's a closer-upper:

I’m submitting this card to the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger Challenge. My 1st time submitting a Tuesday trigger! Oh! Before I forget, heres a look at the trigger:

I love this photo so very much! So country/diva-licious ;). You can always count on Cath to deliver amazing images over on the Moxie Fab Blog!!!

Anyway, that’s my share-o-the-day ;). What are you working on??? I wanna see... Right now, I’m working on some baby shower invites for a friend of mine. I’m super excited about them, and CAN NOT wait to share them with you! Until next time have a fabby day friends!
