Encouragement the Moxie Fab way!


Happy Sunday and welcome to another Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge! This week our hostess is the sweet and talented Patti! The Scripture Patti chose for this week's challenge is "Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them." ~Ephesians 4:29 NLT

Patti's challenge is "A Way with Words". Create a card or project that will compliment, encourage, or cheer someone in need of uplifting.

I wanted to play this week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World as well, so I made two cards that fit both of these challenges. The Moxie Fab Tues. Trigger is "All that glitters" and is based on this gorgeous inspiration photo:

Aren't these colors and this ring amazing? I won't even tell you what this baby costs! But here is my second take on the trigger:


The top card is made with Layers of Color Granny's Jewelry clear art stamp set, stamped in Stazon Silver, and Gina K Fanciful Tags (by Nina Brackett) for the sentiment, heat embossed in white. The second card is made with Our Daily Bread designs "God Loves You" set, stamped in Lavender Lace (SU!). Both cards are on a base of EK Success Craftstock (Purple Heliotype) and use designer paper by Kaisercraft (Airy Fairy). The ribbon is from my stash, as is all the bling. Both cards were made in a snap... REALLY CAS for me, but I do like them and know I have many uses for Praying for you cards!

Grace what a beautiful color choice. I like how the flower puff in the DP on the second card mimics the round shape of the ring in the inspiration photo. Lovely just lovely.
