Happy Monday!

I’m just going to jump right on in and get to the goods.

Sigh, I love new paper.  While the MME Lost & Found line has been out for a while, I am just getting to play with them.  I got a smokin’ deal on four 6×6 pads from ScrapAce recently.

And this is where my clean and graphic style won’t let me be 100% shabby chic.  Ha.  The papers scream shabby, but somehow I turn them into a graphic card.  But I like it that way.  LOVE those shoes and saying from the to the moon & back Unity stamp set.  I keep going back to this kit of the month OVER and OVER again.  It is a definite must have.

I decided to play in the Stamp It! Cards Week Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  This is stamping at its simplest, but I love the repeated pattern of the shoes.  Hope you do too.

patterned paper: Lost & Found – Market Street {My Mind’s Eye}

    I love it – the perfect blend of shabby & graphic. Maybe that should be a “new” style category 😉 It totally works for you!

    This card is freakin’ fantastic, Lisa! Did you cut up the shoes? How on earth did you get them to zigzag in that pattern? Love it!
