Tuesday Trigger: Fall is in the Bag

At the office: Whoo hoo, staff meeting today! Ok, ok. Let's be honest. I'm whoo-hooing because of the free lunch (Qdoba), but I thought it was a very productive meeting, seeing as I was able to get some answers to questions I had and found ways to put my 2 cents into the discussion.

Card: Here's my take on this week's Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger challenge. I did something that I rarely do in my cards, which is include my own handwriting. I guess I don't think it's as nice as other card markers' handwriting, but at least it's legible. That's more than I can say for the notes I write for myself at work. I sacrifice aesthetics for speed. The pattern on the purse reminded me of a tree stamp that I had, so that was my starting point for this card. Then I added other fall-y elements to the card, ta da!

Interesting, picked up a card magazine at the grocery store and was thumbing thru it and the jest of it was being inspired by different things and turning that object into a card. Like you just did with the purse......interesting, was going to buy the magazine, maybe next time I'm in the store I will.
