Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

Hiya! I am sooo excited today - I survived the last teaching day at work and summer is now so close I can taste it! hehe

Anywho, I saw this Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger post earlier this week and I LOVED the version that Betsy made. Here's the original card that we are all supposed to base our project off of ...
You really must go check out the full post and the one Betsy made too. (Did I mention that I loved it?!) For me, this card has a 9-patch thing going on (maybe its all the quilts I am dreaming of making over the summer ...) so I decided to bust out my felt again and stitch with it. Here's my version of this week's Tuesday Trigger ...I really love how this turned out. I must share that felt wiggles when you stitch it so my 9-patch is a bit wonky. But it sort of adds a little homemade charm so me and my OCD can deal with it this time. ;-) I cut some 1" felt squares, tacked them down (should have done more than tacked!) and stitched across them all. Then I selected a few buttons, threaded them and adhered those on top of the felt blocks. The little sentiment is popped up on foam tape too. And I like the little apron punched border peeking out the side.

Well, hope you enjoyed my take on the challenge. Thanks for stopping by and have a great holiday weekend! :-)
