Moxie Fab The Cityscapes Are On the Rise Challenge

Oh what a fun challenge! I just had to play along with this Challenge over at the Moxie Fab World. You should check it out, as Cath has put together a delightful array of cityscapes to look at for inspiration. Also, be sure to see what other creative minds have come up with for this challenge. I took a look myself this afternoon, and there are some REALLY cute cards out there, folks!

Well, here's my card for the challenge!
I had a lot of fun with this card. I knew as soon as I first saw the challenge that I wanted to use these houses from Memory Box. They are so fun and cute! I made a little scene using them along with the little tree and fence....so fun! I colored it all in with Copics and a couple of Stampin' Write Markers too, and then put it on dimensionals and stuck it over the top of the city buildings I created with textured card stock in various blue colors, making the windows on the skyscrapers with a blender pen in some Marina Mist ink. I added some clouds to the card base, threw everything else on, and lastly added the little banner between the two taller houses using some Divine Twine and some Pumpkin Pie and Pear Pizzaz card stock!

I have to say I had a ton of fun making this card.....it is totally what I needed to get me back into the swing of stamping for fun since I have been so busy with stamping for publication submissions......

Gonna run....the baby just woke up and needs to get back to sleep. Someone forgot to give Kellan the memo about daylight savings time. Needless to say he's had a bit of a rough day with waking up and napping.

Can I just say I am SO NOT a fan of daylight savings time? This has to be my least favorite day of the entire year. Don't get me wrong, I love having it be lighter out later, but do we have to switch back and forth every six months? Maybe I just need to move to Arizona. Oh well!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

My kids had the roughest time with the time changes when they were younger...I hated it too. Ugh.
I love your card - the banner is my favourite little touch :)
