Blog Bop: A Hodge Podge of Wonderful

I've been a-boppin', friends! Check out these moxie fab projects from the blog-o-sphere!

{heart} u Card from Clouds Shadler

Moxie Fab Alert: Great use of product, fantastic color scheme, and that umbrella is to die for!

Thank U Card by Laura Craigie

Moxie Fab Alert: Superb balance in design, including the color--look how she's isolated and tied together the focal points by making them the only elements that are red. Moxie fab!

The Sun Will Come Out Card by Niki Estes

Moxie Fab Alert: Striking color scheme, creative use of ribbon to create the sun's rays, and excellent pairing of the clouds to enhance the sentiment!

il ove yoU Card by Jessica Witty

Moxie Fab Alert: How stinkin' clever is THIS?

Life is a Circus Card by Teresa Abajo

Moxie Fab Alert: I love the way Teresa has used the gray background to show off her colorful focal point. The pom-poms are an excellent addition to the "circus" feel of the card as well as echoing the polka dots in the background, on the circus tent, and in the coordinating red ribbon. I love the reverse scallop under the sentiment which plays off the scalloped frame. This card has balance, playfulness, style, and a sentiment that makes me grin from ear to ear.

Love Frame by Joanne Basile

Moxie Fab Alert: This is sweetness pure and simple. What a beautiful stamped and colored image! I love the pleating of the patterned paper at the bottom. It grounds the design, creating texture and depth at the same time. And the frame? It's a perfect addition to the design, making me feel all homey inside.

Hello Card by Kim Hughes

Moxie Fab Alert: What I love most about this card is the color balance it achieves. Kim has taken the colors in the stripes and applied them to her cutie-pie bird. The hounds tooth contrast makes the card feel traditional, while the polka dot ribbon is a surprising touch that geniously ties all the elements together. Bravo, Kim! Bravo!

Follow Your Own Star Card by Latisha Yoast

Moxie Fab Alert: I moxie love the contrasting colors of red and yellow in this card. And while there's a lot of pattern going on, this card has a fun, patchworky feel that is grounded by the neutral ribbon. My favorite part? The sentiment. I love how she's stamped "follow your own" in black while popping the most important word of the phrase, "star," in red. Moxilicious!

Isn't this just a hodge podge of wonderful card inspiration today, friends? Leave these talented gals a comment telling them what you love about their cards by midnight on Sunday, September 6 MDT and I'll draw a lucky winner to receive a hodge podge of moxie fab product!
