It's a fab day!

While I didn't WIN the Moxie Fab challenge for Taintor-tude- I did get a shout out from Cath! And let's face it, in my little world- that is pretty great! Within one week I've been a runner-up in 2 fun challenges! (I hope I don't sound like I'm tooting my own horn- but this is big doin's for me!) So, thought I'd throw my paper-pieced hat in to Betsy's challenge. And yes, I am eeking this in under the wire!!! :)
Just bought that coredinations paper- and the photo doesn't do it justice- it really has a wave effect. PTI men of life, paper pieced with ancient CM star paper & versamark clear embossed PTI brown. The layers are popped up a few times for dimension & twine tied in a sailor's knot.
Sorry for the quality of the pics- light isn't great at this hour!
Thanks for taking a look- I'd love to know what you think!


  1. I'm usually not so much a fan of the dark blue shades but this combo looks awesome, Jen!! How adorable is that pieced little boat and in your sea of paper waves? Very cute card! :-))
