The Alley Way Moxie Fab Mojo Monday


Hope to just squeeze in for the gorgeous The Alley Way Stamps BE Inspired Challenge and Mojo Monday Challenge, and couldn't help but add this to the ever popular Gingham Challenge at Moxie Fab World.

Just in case you are wondering how I was inspired by the BE Inspired photo, other than the gorgeous colour combination of green, brown, light tan, teal and burnt orange, you may remember the sayings "Proud as a peacock" and "Pride comes before a fall", well what comes after a fall?  Someone asking "How are you???"  Obvious isn't it LOL!

I just love The Alley Way stamps for paper piecing, their stamps are just so cute, including this sheep and hay (used as grass tufts) from ei-ei-o, and the sentiment is taken from the "ewe" and "ho" from "horse" from Get MOOvin' and the "are" and "w" from Chatterbox.  Papers are a mix of gingham from Lily Bee Design and Echo Park, with the spots from Echo Park too. All the stamping is in Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip, and the scalloped circle die cut is Spellbinders.  I took a bit of liberty with the Mojo Monday sketch by using my sun as a flower and moving the sentiment banner to the base of the card - just don't tell anyone ;)

Hope you have enjoyed a wonderful weekend :)

Update -  I participated in The Alley Way Stamps / Ribbon Carousel bloghop recently, and had not realised what an impression Laurel Seabrooks card had made til I went back and checked it out (pun intended!) again today.  Her gorgeous creation can be seen here
