Moxie Tag It

I am so bad - I just didn't feel like working today, so I left 2 hours early, came home and found these 2 awesome challenges to play in!  [Yep, I have priorities :).]

Moxie Fab is running a word die cut challenge, and Tag Your It #1 is CASEing Virginia's fun tags, which fortunately, had word dies!  Perfect.

I picked up on Virginia's color scheme, [kind of nice to get away from blues and greens.] along with her word die.

I used my fun Add a Little Dazzle Gold Craft Metal Sheet. [I get credit if you want to order any of the sheet metal HERE] To strengthen the metal, I adhered it on to a piece of card stock first, and then ran my Avery Elle Hello die through my cutter.  I like the fact I get 2 projects out a one cut.  My flowers are from the Verve set, One Person [retired].


I also had to play in the CASE Study Challenge #198.  My hero, Shari Carroll is the July Muse.  Oh my, I just adore this women's work!  If I haven't pinned her cards, they are saved to my computer~ LOVE.HER.WORK.  [I got to meet her last year at CHA.  I'm sure she doesn't remember, but I sure do :).]

I sponged in my [WalMart] stencil and used some Graphic 45 chipboard pieces.  The chevrons are from STAMPlorations, Chevron & Arrows, with the sentiment being from MFT, Simply Fabulous Sayings.

Another awesome way to start off my week end~  I hope you enjoy the 4th and you find some crafty time too.

Thanks for stopping by~
