WOYWW & Moxie Fab!

I decided to combine two challenges today - this week's Moxie Fab World: Tuesday Trigger: Stripe-tastic and WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday). To save all the Moxie Fab peeps from having to look at my desk, I'll do the challenge first, then move on to The Reveal for WOYWW.

Okay, here's the trigger:

Isn't that amazing?! And here's my card:

 I chose the stripes, which I declared to be Concord Crush, River Rock, Baja Breeze and White. I also chose the Peter Pan collar with circles on it and used my MFT Dizzy Border die for that element.

That handsome taffeta ribbon hides the results of an unfortunate un-sticking incident that I really don't want to discuss right now, but I WASN'T starting over! Hmph. Oh, and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

Okay, time for the desk reveal for WOYWW:

Yeah, I know it's Thursday over in the UK already, but it's still Wednesday here! There is a lot of, er, stuff here, mostly projects in progress.  Front & center are the pieces of card stock that became my Tuesday Trigger card above. To the left are some parts that are in the process of becoming a (gasp) Valentine's Day card. Everything else is pretty much still here from the last time I took a photo. See that bandanna? Yep, still there.

In other news, the Analyst in me has planned a controlled test. One of my peeps wants to open an Etsy store, but she's afraid her cards are too floofy and fat to mail without being destroyed. BAH, I say, BAH! So I said I'd make a floofy card (HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, yes, I know, pretty funny, eh?) and mail it to her so she can see that she's worried about nothing. So stay tuned for that. I might have to take out some of my Webster's Pages floof for that effort. I'll be sure to warn you before I post it.

I'm off to finish that Valentine's card. I can't believe I made one ...

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. The card is a perfect match to the trigger. Cool that all those SU colors matched. The desk looks strangely like mine! :)

  2. Beautiful card (and I love the trigger photo!) I'd wear that. :) Merry Christmas! Tango #84

  3. You rocked this challenge, L! Your MFT border is gorgeous...I guess I need that now too...

    I can't wait to see your valentine and floofy card!!!

    I've been meaning to ask you about coffee shop sales are ~half what they were back in the day. I was wondering how the easy thing worked and if I would be a good fit...I may try the coffee shop out in Purcellville, which has a more arty community than here in the 'burg. Thoughts?

  4. You nailed that stripey challenge to a tee - looks fab!! Thanks for sharing in such a busy week! Hope you have a very festive and wonderfully merry time - see you in 2012! Sarah at 11.

  5. There's a desk in there? I shouldn't poke fun, mine often looks like that and I have the same things on my desk week after week (I mean like that bandana--random things not crafy tools or papers). I Iike how your card mimicked the photo. I'm not usually a fan of stripes but your card rocked!

  6. oh creativity is not to be laughed at!! well done on both fronts lol

    Happy belated WOYWW and if I dont pop back before, Merry Christmas,
    Lou #34
