Soup To Nuts

  After taking the summer off from Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger Challenge I felt it was high time I get back into some paper crafting challenges by way of cards. I really did miss it-it's my favorite challenge of all of them at Moxie Fab!

 This week's trigger is this graphic and delightful paper by Cavallini titled "Soup to Nuts" :

  And here's the card I made:
  Products used: olive cardstock (finished card size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" ); corner rounder; mini stapler (Tim Holtz); bird punch (Stampin Up!); dotted ribbon (Offray); sentiment (clear stamp-Think Big Favorites #4-PTI); ric rac clear stamp (Limited Edition); Jet Black Staz-On ink (Tsukineko); Lettuce Adirondack dye ink (Ranger); and the patterened papers are from Studio Calico-the Take Note Paper Pack (which I had won over at Moxie Fab World - yay!  along with a slew of other new Studio Calico products!).
 I didn't want to leave without sharing two other cards I had made for friends recently:
  I began cardmaking sometime in the mid to late 1980's and I still get such  joy out of creating handmade cards even though I have ventured into other areas such as mixed media art, collage, and fabric art. My first published  projects were cards and tho I don't submit very often anymore I still get such a thrill when I receive an issue with something of mine in along with so many talented card makers!
 Thanks for stopping by. If you have any ? about the cards or products feel free to contact me anytime.
