Chevron Chic with 100 Proof Press in the Moxie Fab World

I'm not sure if that title actually makes sense or not, but it certainly has a LOT of fun words in it.  Just say'n.

And really...that IS exactly what we have with this fun card today! Chevron Chic!

Chevron Balloons


So...how much do I LOVE this hot air balloon stamp from 100 Proof Press? Pretty much tons. And the Chevron pattern was absolutely PERFECT for the Chevron Chic Challenge in the Moxie Fab World!

I really love the way this flower came out! I created it with the 1/2 inch crinkle ribbon from May Arts and it is a bit loose and messy and it makes me SOOO happy! That cool gold chain trim is also May Arts!

I cut the red panel in three strips and layered the middle one over a piece of vintage lace. I pretty much love that. No. Really. For reals. I do. I'm not gonna lie. And then, of course, I HAD to pop up at least one of my balloons because, ummm....well...hot air balloons fly, so they should 'fly' on my card, right? Right. K. Glad we agree.

So, that's my card! I hope it makes you smile! It has no sentiment and that is weird, but you know what, folks! Sometimes you just need a pretty and you don't need a lot of words and stuff. Just say'n.

Not that I'm usually one for not a lot of words, I mean, really, this is ME we are talking about. You know....when I was a baby I used to talk and talk and talk and sing and talk and talk and then just suddenly fall asleep mid-word. Does that surprise a SINGLE one of you? Nope. Just say'n. It's true, though. You can ask my Mom! Go ahead....I dare ya!

HA! Okay...that's about enough of THAT for today. But, I will see you again tomorrow with some bright and shiny happy!!! Oh...and if you haven't already checked, I posted the winners for the Just Jingle Giveaway Day and the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day in the post before this one, so TOTALLY check that out, because it could be YOU!

Have a Happy THURSDAY!!!

Jingle Out!

HAHAHA!!!! THAT STILL cracks me up every. single. time. I do it.

Just say'n.

I'm smiling, I'm smiling! So pretty! I LOVE your rose. I've been obsessed with handmade roses of late. Made my first one about a month ago and they're piling up! Working on ideas to incorporate them into as many projects as possible.
