White Trigger Flowers


I can't believe it's already Sunday night.  I feel like it was just a few minutes ago that I woke up on Saturday morning, ready and raring to go for the weekend.  *Sigh* Times flies and all that jazz...  I didn't spend much time in the Craft Cave this weekend but I managed to complete a card for this week's Tuesday Trigger at the Moxie Fab World.  I love these fun patterned tins and, although I had lots of ideas running through my head, I was especially inspired by the top right one.  Love the white popping off that orange!  I'm also going to enter this card in the Lily Pad Flowers challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge. 


It may be a bit quiet around here for the next week.  I've got a few extra work shifts and Luis and I are also planning on doing some more painting.  Hopefully this will include the Craft Cave although the thought of moving everything out of the room is a terrifying one!!

Jen, this is truly, truly fabulous...love all the gorgeous white...and it has dimension! Love your take on the trigger! Happy painting...what colors are you painting?

Christy Q said...

Gorgeous, Jen! Love how the white flowers "POP" against the orange background.

Hope you find some time to create this week amidst work and painting (oh joy!). I hate to paint so my husband does it all (and I am a pain to work with so he finds it easier to paint without me). LOL

Jenny said...

Wow I love this Jen, such a perfect replica of the pattern and just as eye-catching :0) I just never got round to this trigger which is a shame coz I love Orla Kielly patterns!
Know what you mean about the wkds flying, at least the kids are off now although that will curtail craft time for me!
Goodness, painting the craft room would fill me with dread too....... I'd have to find the walls first..hehe :0)

Oh, I would hate to move all my stuff again...had to do it for carpeting 5 or 6 years ago, and yeah. No. Just no! Add that to working extra? Are you nuts?
I love how your card turned out - the different-coloured centre pieces make the flowers just pop!
With any luck your package should arrive this week - I hope. I cannot WAIT for you to get it!!!

Hey Jen! Thanks for linking this up to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)

Vicky Hayes said...

I love the way you took that pattern and recreated it for your card Jen. Moving all your craft stuff sounds like a very serious operation!

Lindsey said...

Extra work shifts? Moving stuff out and back into the craft cave? That's not fun!
This is a gorgeous card! Love the multicoloured centres on the white flowers.

Maureen Morton said...

Love this, Jen - kind of reminds me of the 1960's when we all into "flower power" and lots of fun graphic images. Really pops! Good luck with your extra hours and paint project - a real pain, but the results are so worth it.
