Got Moxie?..

Hey, everyone!
HAPPY Hip-Hop THURSDAY...and I say that w/ MOXIE!

Just what exactly IS Moxie, I asked myself, while making my card using Marah Johnson's "MOXIE" stamp set by Unity...

I know there's the MOXIE FAB Blog-and that immediately came to mind as this card was designed for the Papercrafts Magazine call and was REJECTED (I'm picturing big red, reject stamp here, LOL! jk jk) for the call.   I'm not gonna cry though-3,000 submissions w/ only like 288 possible slots..that's a whole lotta MOXIE!

So here's the skinny on this fun and FAB word:

mox·ie

  [mok-see]  Show IPA
–noun Slang .
1.
vigor; verve; pep.
2.
courage and aggressiveness; nerve.
3.
skill; know-how.

Origin: 
1925–30, Americanism  after Moxie,  a trademark (name of asoft drink)


Alrighty then-there was your lesson for the day!  And here is my card-full of MOXIE:

I used some pretty patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye LUSH Collection and used the GORGEOUS frame and "MOXIE" sentiment from the MOXIE kit.

SOOOO glad you stopped by today!  Are you guys headed over to JIMMI's blog next?  I hope so!  And if you're just starting out here, don't forget to start at the UNITY BLOG to see what's up for today!
Next Blog

Last but not least-TWO reminders:

1.) Be sure to check THIS OUT:
2.) There's STILL time to play in the NEW Unity Challenge!  You have until the 14th to enter to WIN and if you think THIS month's prize is good? Wait til you hear NEXT Months!  The NEW challenge will be issued on the 15th!  woo hoo!

That's it for me, guys...hope you have a MOXIE-licious day!  (was that too much?  yeah, maybe... LOL!)
