Tuesday Trigger: Merci Card

This weeks Trigger from the Moxie Fab World is straight from the pages of Stamp It! Cards!!
I absolutely love the scene she has created... reminds me of my Nana's old kitchen!
And Trigger it did... it brought back a lot of old memories that I have of us together... 

Merci Card by Tina Fussel, p. 134

I made a Thank-you card as well and picked up black, white and aqua colours. I die cut some doilies and used one of the pretty hand died ones I got in Frog Feather's Etsy Shop a while back, {It's so hard to use them} since it was quite like one my Nana would have on the table in the kitchen under a vase of flowers!

My Nana made it over to my Wedding in Ireland all the way from Canada in her late 80's.. she had an absolutely brilliant time and I was so glad she made it for our special day! She always wanted to come to Ireland and wasn't going to miss it for the world! She is no longer with us, but I have so many great memories of us together!!



  1. This is so pretty! I love the doilies! They are one of my favorite elements right now... which is how I guess it ended up as the tablecloth on my card! :-) Hugs from Copenhagen!

  2. So lovely Robin!! Love that doily!

  3. These are ace cards love the doiley one best just bought myself a hook to make some flowers you tube has some brill tutorials, Your gran looks lovely just reminded me of my late nan too & yes she did all the knitting Crochet stuff sadly it missed me. Janet

  4. Gorgeous, color-saturated take on the trigger! The doily is so luscious, I can totally understand why it's hard to use.
