Laundry and some Moxie Fab Paper Piecing

So I have finally motivated myself for today....we'll see how long it lasts. I just got some laundry going, and now I can get onto some card making!
My mom came over this morning and took the older boys to school and then took Sam home with her for a couple of hours. I love my mom! I am so very thankful that she lives so close and is so willing to help me out in these last few weeks of this pregnancy! I know that she is sacrificing a lot of her time to help me out, and I couldn't be more grateful! If you would have asked me 15 or 20 years ago, if I would love having my mom so close and be able to see her so often, I most likely would have laughed! But it's amazing what time and experience does to us. I am so thankful that I can count my mom as one of my closest friends!

Okay, so now onto some cards that I wanted to make for the Moxie Fab Paper Piecing Challenge. This couldn't have come at a better time for me. Y'all know how much I've been trying to use up my obnoxiously endless stash of PP that I have. And what better way to do it than with a Moxie Fab Challenge. Here's the cards I did using different forms of paper piecing:


Well, I think I got a bit carried away! I have just been SO into using PP lately, I just couldn't stop at one card....and since it's been a bit tough to get my mojo flowing, I figured that I might as well just keep on going until I am out of juice!!! Thanks for the challenge. Cath! I had SO SO much fun with this one! And that's what paper crafting is all about, right? Enjoying yourself and having fun with it.

I can't decide which card is my favorite. I think it might be the one with the cut out flowers with the corduroy button......let me know what you think!

My mom just brought Sam back home, so I think this may be my stopping point for today!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

Amanda, these cards are awesome!! I love the pieced/punched border on the last one and the one with the flower cut-out over the text paper! They are all so pretty! Thanks for playing along in Moxie Fab World. :-)
