Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: A Pin Therein

I'm glad the deadline was extended for the current Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger:





The baby of one of the owners of the winery where I work part-time is due in a few weeks:)  I've had this idea for a baby card since I saw the trigger:


I've wanted to join the hexie craze like everyone else and didn't realize one of my Cricut cartridges (Winter Woodland) contains this image!  Love it when I can use something I already have:)  I die cut hexies from 4 different pp's from Stampin' Up, My Mind's Eye and Jillibean Soup.  I glued them to a piece of white cs trimming as needed.  Using a Nestie I die cut a scalloped circle from PTI rustic white cs and then stamped the crib and sentiment from studio g in Ranger walnut stain distress ink. Edges were lightly inked with Ranger antique linen distress ink.
Other Materials Used:  Martha Stewart seam binding, JoAnn's heart button, Creative Impressions twine, lace and stick pins from stash, Stampin' Up pool party and chocolate chip cs

As always, thanks for your encouraging comments!

Robin, I love this!! It's a beautiful card, so cozy and peaceful. Perfect for a girl or a boy and just so sweet. Makes me want to snuggle up with your quilt and a baby in my arms. :) Clever thinking to check your cartridges!
