If you have popped by the Moxie Fab World recently, you know that Cath has SO many new challenges up. I have SO many ideas for each one of these, and SO little time to execute the said ideas…  I seem to have more card ideas and plans than I can shake a stick at. (And more paper/tools, too!) Too much inspiration is not necessarily a bad problem to have, but it can be painful at times. (I didn’t write these lines I got them from here. They ring so true in my case, and were so well written that I just had to use them!)

I did manage to squeeze a little “me” time and get these projects done for the Map to Your Heart Challenge in the Moxie Fab World 

I punched the birdie from a map, but the innovativeness here is using the map to create the matching envelope. You could use a road map, and actually cut out the map to have the actual road intersections of your destination address!

I also made this wall art for our kitchen. I used tiny sticker alphas to mark where home is…

(it reads “the world may be filled with adventure, but home is where I will always want to be…)

That’s it for today! Have a great Monday!
