Trigger Tuesday done today and No Pants Day 14

 Over at Moxie Fab Blog they do a Tuesday Trigger to inspire your card making/paper crafting. This weeks was a quilted blanket with multicolored numbers and nearly everyone who had the embossing folder I used on the left used it ;)

 This Bingo card is a Tim Holtz's Embossing Folder and I liked it because of the numbers.  I had done a birthday card with brads for a bingo and wanted to do something different so I got out the brad template to make a heart and used red rhinestones.  I didn't have enough smalls so I had to go back and use the medium and big.  Then I inked it with Festive Berries.
 Next the Cuttlebug Die everyone loves.  I chalked the numbers 143 and then because I'm crazy I poked holes around the numbers and stitched with green thread like on the quilt.  The inside says I Love You with the numbers 143 underneath their words.
 Another Tim Holtz's Embossing Folder.  I chalked the edges and the #4's there's one that got cut off a bit in the pic I see.  I couldn't decide what to do with it because I liked the ledger so much so I just found a velum word, cut it out and stapled it on.  I didn't want to mess with glue on the uneven surface.
This would have been the last day of my No Pants for January since I had worn each dress and skirt that I had owned. (Minus the wedding, formal and 'snug' skirt)  Yesterday I went shopping at Khols hoping I'd find another dress or skirt but they were meh so I bought stockings instead.  I have discovered I have more tights/hose to wear than I have dresses/skirts to wear them with.  Today hubs wanted to go to Super Target so while he shopped I went and looked at dresses and found a new one I will wear tomorrow.  So now I can go half a month without wearing a pair of pants. :)  So now after Sunday unless I just really want to I can wear pants.  It's nice  just knowing my stuff is getting worn rather than sitting on the hangers like they were before I discovered Amber and the No Pants Blog.
