Celebrating Your Birthday!

celebratingmaureenplut

Good morning!  Well, I’m happy to report that I have my fingers back!  Yes, I got the gel nails taken off yesterday and I’ve doubled my efficiency around the house  :)  If you’re just tuning in, I had gel nails put on 2 1/2 weeks ago for my bonus son’s wedding.  However, life with nails (when you’re not used to them) is not that easy…picking things up off the floor (like adhesive backs, dies, paper), tying ribbon, scratching an itch and even typing!  I miss how beautifully perfect they looked, but I’m sure glad to have them off :)  To celebrate, I thought I’d play along with this week’s Moxie Fab World’s Tuesday Trigger: I’m Craving Navy.

Navy Bluesaug18

With all those fabulous navy stripes, you’d thinking I’d have more navy and stripes on my card!  LOL  Nope, I zoomed in on the carpet.  I’m interpreting its pattern as houndstooth :)  Clean and simple, just like the photo with colour in the bottom left corner and more white in the upper half of the layout.  A bit of bling with sequins and a gem makes it festive (IMHO).  Thanks for stopping by!  Are YOU celebrating anything today?  I’d love to hear about it!

Always love to see your clean design takes on challenges. This card, no exception! Beautiful, bright, and yes, clean!
Had 'nails' for years, took them off, and never looked back! Couldn't believe how much I missed! Including buttoning and snapping!

What a great take on the trigger, Maureen. I love that you held back on the navy, it makes the color stand out even more.

Wow Moe, sorry I have not been around for a while but had to drop by when I saw this gorgeous CAS card. I love how you balanced it in the same way as the photo and went with the carpet, just perfect x

Yum and yum. One yum for the gray and white and the other for the slanted use of the PTI greeting. Thanks for the inspiration.

Maureen, this is fantastic! I love how the layout of your card is taken from the photo. And actually the rug was the very first thing that stood out to me, too...funny, huh?
