2nd Blogaversary & Moxie Fab World Challenge #49




It's hard to believe that it has been two years since I started my blog.  I began my blog so that I could share my love of papercrafting, inspire and participate in challenges. My very first card posted was this one for the January 2011 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.





Throughout these past two years I have made so many wonderful friendships and been inspired by so many papercrafters around the world.  I am honoured to be on both the CASology and the colourQ Design Teams and I am also thankful everyday that I have so many friends come and visit my blog always full of support and encouragement.  You have all given me so much confidence in myself.

Now we can't have a post without a new card so I am sharing this card that I made for the Moxie Fab World 75 Creative Card Challenges Week:  Challenge #49--Make Your Own Background Paper.





All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  Pure Poppy, White
Stamps: Background Basics: Super Stripes, Heart-2-Heart #11
Ink:  Pure Poppy, Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz
Dies: Framed Out #11
other: foam tape

Congratulations on your blogaversary. I'm certainly glad you started your blog, because otherwise our paths would never have crossed. Love this card--the die cuts are such fun, and your plaid is great. I like how you left some white space between your stripes. I need to try that.

Congrats on two years, Tracey. That's quite an accomplishment to keep blogging consistently with fabulous cards for that length of time.
I came over from the MFW background paper challenge, so I just wanted to say that you used a great mix of colors in the stripes. The die cut heart really makes the plaid shine.
