Tuesday Trigger: I Feel Pretty in Turquoise & Gold

Today's Tuesday Trigger comes from Tina Fussell:


Tina says:

When I saw the photo of the beautiful turquoise, white, and soft suede room on House of Turquoise my heart literally skipped a beat! It was so gorgeous and inspiring that I immediately sat down and made a card! It certainly helped that this is one of my all time favorite color combinations EVER and I am a little lace/doily obsessed lately!

Here's her card:


Fun, huh? Link your triggers up using Mr. Linky below by Monday of next week--and have fun, moxie fabbers, have FUN!

A shout out to last week's Trigger Targets who gained some moxie fab inspiration from Regina Mangum's gorgeous January King Cabbage image: Lisa Forsythe, Scrappy A (Alicia), Jessica Rosario, lynn, Deanna (Dee Woodland), and Regan D'Agostino. Thanks to everyone who played along!

Last week Carol Weimer made this comment and asked this question...

I love projects in 3D. This box is so beautiful and I'm sure your going to get some great takes on this week's trigger. I'm interested in how you go about singling out your favorites for each week's spotlight.

Great question, Carol! I look for the same thing I look for in the Moxie Fab World Challenges and when we choose projects for publication in Paper Crafts magazine: how well the project interprets the current challenge/call, good design/composition, freshness, stellar execution, and the moxie fab factor--whether or not the project elicits an emotional reaction by making me say "WOW!"

Friends, keep your Tuesday Triggers coming! I know you're making your Valentine's Day cards and projects, so why not share your inspiration with us? Send your images, your blurbs, and your projects to me at tuesdaytrigger@gmail.com and who knows? You could be the next Trigger Girl!

Inspiration awaits us all,

~Cath
