On a Moxie Fab Misson...

I woke up on a mission today, a mission to stamp!  The boys are in camp this week and I'd like to take some time each day for myself.  During my morning blog hopping I found that Cath at Moxie Fab World is celebrating a new special issue, Birthday Creations and she is posting daily challenges.  I thought, "Perfect, I'll do each of the challenges this week." 

Fast forward a few hours and I was ready to stamp!  The challenge was to use the sketch (posted at the botton of this post) and either make a card using ALL stamping or NO stamping.  I opted for stamping!  I quickly made a card, then set off to get my camera when it dawned on me that we are celebrating "Birthday Creations", ha!  This is my card...


Yup, not a BIRTHDAY card!
 Back to my stamp table and I revised my design to this...


More fitting to the challenge :) 
But, this card is very similar to one I made and will be posting later in the week for StampNation.
Oh, well!  I got two cards done today and that makes me happy!!!!

I hope you are having a happy day too.

LOL! That's totally something I would have done but hey, you got two kick ass cards out of it! I'm especially diggin' the blues on the second one. :)

That's so funny...and so like something I would do! Both cards are great, and are perfect for MFW! Great colors on both, and I love the navy balloon on the bd card. Sweet! Bev

These are both absolutely fabulous. I chuckled at your story. I also made what I thought was a card for this very same challenge. Only, when I went to post it, I realized that I had missed the part about the sketch--I had just made a birthday card with only stamping! Oh, well. There is always tomorrow.

You gave me a giggle, Maureen! I'm really glad you forgot you were making a "birthday" card, because it means you gave me double eye-candy. :-)

Lucky for us, we got two cards out of your "mistake"! Both are completely awesome, but I think I love your second version even more than the first. The black strip at the bottom is a great addition to the design.
