Tuesday Trigger Challenge- and I'm out!

I saw the Tuesday Trigger challenge over at Moxie Fab World and knew I had to do something with those colors for Charlie's overdue birthday thank you cards! He had a Buzz Lightyear party so the colors were perfect and I had this polka dot paper that worked too!  Click HERE to play along!
Here's the "trigger" picture:
And in other news I'm heading out of town tomorrow for a couple days with a friend (and her mom!) to Utah and I'm excited! I'm also nervous, not so much that things will fall apart here without me, but more that they'll go so smoothly no one will want me back! (though that might not be so bad after all...)

Happy Easter

Hope you all had a good Easter, full of fun and also some peaceful reflection.  We had a fun family party yesterday and got to attend a very different, but wonderful stake conference this weekend. A speaker encouraged us to ask questions in our hearts as we attend our church meetings, and to listen for God's personal answers to us through His spirit. I discovered that even surrounded by 5 wiggly and irreverent children, learning can happen!  How thankful I am today that God keeps His promises, and that Jesus Christ lives!  He truly is the Savior of the world, and He is my Savior, and I know through Him I can change and be a little better every day.

Card set and gift bag challenge

Moxie Fab World has had 6 challenges going on to celebrate the release of Paper Crafts magazines "350 Cards and Gifts" edition and I finally finished a couple things to enter!  I hoped to do a lot more but you know how that goes!  I especially love these because they are picking the winners at random, and that means I actually have some kind of chance :-) 
First I made this fun little card set to give someone for the card set challenge:
And they get bundled up and tied up in this little bag:
And then for the gift wrap challenge I wanted to share this simple baby gift bag:
The onesie is a card just clipped to twine strung across the front of the bag- so simple and if I may say so, so cute too!
You have a few hours left to enter- maybe I can get the kids to bed and do one more?
Check out the Moxie Fab blog for tons of inspiration HERE.

Wedding Card

Finally actually linking up to a couple card challenges today!  I used the CPS sketch this week, and I made it a gift card holder so I'm also linking to the Moxie Fab World gift card holder challenge. 

My brain works so much better on cards than full scrapbook layouts for some reason- this one is really simple and easy with the help of a triangle punch!
Next up, take of "Merry Christmas" from my blog header!  Yikes, I have been away a while haven't I?
