Hi Stampers!!

Well....I went to stamp class today and, once again, made a couple of GREAT cards!!! I will show you one today (I'll save the other one for another post) and I'll show you what I've done on my quilt.

First the card.....We used the Trendy Trees stamp set....I just love that set!! We started by randomly stamping one of the images as the background. Then we layered a strip of chocolate chip with a strip of the Good Neighbor DSP that is FREE with Sale-A-Bration. The scallop circle is from the SU pennant die and then layered with circle punches. We layered the word window punch on top of the modern label punch and there ya go! A great card!
This card is so versatile!!! You could put ANY sentiment on it. Plus, this could easily be a card for a man.....and I'm always on the hunt for a nice masculine card.

Ok, I am zipping right along on my quilt....I sewed on Sunday afternoon and then a LITTLE bit this evening. I am probably over a quarter of the way DONE! This is the easiest and the most fun I have ever had sewing! Making these quilts gives me the same type of satisfaction as mowing the know how you can instantly see progress when you mow.....well, it's the same with the rag quilt! I'm just going to show you a small portion of it.....I will take a picture of the entire quilt when I'm done....after it's all sewn and then after I've washed it so that it frays.
The picture above shows you what the front will look like....all those seams will fray and really soften it. Below is a picture of the looks more like a traditional quilt.
I'm so excited!!! I'm already thinking about what kind of quilt I can make next!!! Steve even said that I should make one for us! Get him sold on the idea and then he won't mind when I sit in my craft room sewing and sewing and sewing and sewing!!

Well...that's it for today! Thanks so much for dropping by! Hopefully by this weekend or early next week I will have it all finished and I will show you!

Until next time, find some time for stamping!!!

Great card, another good one for me to use for that stamp set!

Great quilt Cindy! I think you should make one for you guys, make it to match the colors of whatever room it will be used in. If you are going to throw it over the sofa when it is not being used, then make it match that, etc....
