Hi Everyone!

As you have probably noticed lately I have been using challenges as the inspiration for my cards.  I was drawn to this image for the current Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger.

If you study the image as I did you will see that each vertical row is created with pieces of triangles.  I used a triangle theme as the inspiration for my card.

There are lots of triangles and pieces of triangles on my card.  My waves were created with a Martha Stewart border punch that has parts of a triangle on it.  I used a triangle paper punch to create the bottoms and the sails on my boats.  The patterned papers on my sails have triangles on them.  The sun's rays are triangles too. 

Look at the star bling on the sailboats.  Stars have triangles too.

This card is also being used for the "Roll the Dice" challenge at 365 cards.  I grabbed a pair of dice from the Head Start kits I am working on, tossed them, and got a 7.  5 on one die and 2 on the other.  Look closely and you will find 7 rhinestones, one on each of the sailboats and 5 on the sun. 

Hanging out with my friend Diane today and then we're celebrating Jeanne's birthday at dinnertime.

That's all for now.
