Sunny days make me happy

Yep, I woke up to a bright sunny day here in Virginia! Always a nice way to start the day. Well minus the planes taking off. I live near a small airport and because the weather conditions are so lovely it's a perfect day to fly! Happy flying. I wish I had woken up earlier though because there's a restaurant that serves brunch and you can watch the planes take off. It would have been a good day to go.
Instead of going out, I sat down to creating right after my morning cup of joe. It definitely
saved me some calories and a few bucks. One paper line I am digging currently is Artsy Urban by Melody Ross. These funky papers are gorgeous! I covered this container with the aqua flocked paper easily. I then added a scallop trim to the edge and a huge red bead for a handle.

I wrapped a piece of white eyelet lace around the container and then a strip of 7 Gypsies gaffer tape.
Then I added a few Making Memories flowers and trim to dress it up.
The next item I want to share with you is for the CARDS blog challenge this week: create a shaped card.
I used an apple shaped card from Paper Popsicles and covered it with Melody Ross papers, added a scrap piece of border, pattern paper and lace, then embellished with two tiny flowers to complete this card.


My final card is for the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger which was inspired by this photo:



This is my first time participating in this challenge and I am not sure why I have waited this long to play along. The best part is Cath takes your ideas for this challenge.

Pretty cool! Okay I must get ready for work so here's my card:

I used Get Sketchy's #26 card sketch. I could make several cards with this design. I love the large circle!

Have a wonderful day!
