Frame by Frame...feeling a little trigger happy today...

Hello Everyone,
Well I finally made a card for a Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World.  I think this may be my first ever entry into a challenge in the lovely Moxie-Land!!!  Or my second???  I have watched for a long time, watched and hopefully learned a little bit of something....still learning all the time and having fun doing it.

Here is the trigger photo:

I love to crochet and how I would enjoy making these frames! They are so very sweet!!  For some reason when I looked at them I thought of snowflakes falling..unique shapes each...drifting down.  And soft I thought FELT!!! is what I came up with...a birthday card for a very dear friend.  It is a dark, rainy, cold and ugly Seattle day so this is the best picture I could come up with - I apologize for the color and lighting in advance!!!:

The sentiment says:  "Wishing you a cozy Winter Birthday" and is from the Papertrey Ink set: On ice.
Buttons, Felt, Sweet Blush Cardstock - Papertrey Ink.  Teal Dot Cardstock - Bazzill I believe - from my stash of 12 x 12 cardstock.  Sew Mini machine from Janome.  The sewing is supposed to symbolize the wind tossing the snowflakes around....either that or you can chalk it up to sewing with a badly bruised finger....more on that later...
Thanks for taking a look at my card. 
Here is one other card I made today - for Christmas:
This card uses a new Christmas stamp set called  "Stitched Stockings" designed by Lisa Johnson of Poppie Paperie for MFT Stamps.  I am loving this set!!! So fun for very quick Christmas cards with lots of style!
That is it for me tonight.  I am in the process of re-covering my dining room chairs and I hit my pointer finger with the hammer a couple days ago so card making (and sewing on my machine) is a wee bit on the painful side right is typing...
see you in blog land soon...

  1. Hi Jill, LOVE your Tuesday trigger card with the quirky shape and FAB stitching with the punched out snowflakes! LOVE the banners and that sentiment is Wonderful! Also your Christmas card is just delightful, too! Hope you're doing well!

  2. Beautiful....and very clever. So pretty to use snowflakes to emboss with and die cut too. Fabulous!

  3. Jill - I love how you interpreted the Trigger! Love the felt & the snowflake negatives are a great take on the frames.

  4. Hey Jill! Thanks for linking this up to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)

  5. Hi Jill. You could enter the last one in this weeks MIM . Love your take on the photo, snowflakes great idea. I love to crochet as well and would love to make those frames. Your second card is gorgeous love the colors for Christmas and the bit of bling.

  6. Such fun stitching on your card, Jill! Love the colors together. I totally thought about crocheting something for the challenge too, I used to love making crocheted snowflakes. But, alas, there's the whole time thing involved : )
