Good morning, my friends! I pray that you are all well and filled with JOY today!!!
As you read this, I am away from home. I've been called to support a very dear friend whose daughter-in-law is in the hospital. Please pray for Ali... thank you!
Today's card was so much FUN to create. I had to stop myself from adding more. When is enough, enough? My style tends to be fairly clean and simple, so sometimes I struggle with WHAT to add.
Our challenge this week at Try It Out *T* is Crazy Quilts! Make a patchwork quilt using either real or faux stitching. Believe it or not, I actually quilted (fabric/batting/fabric) the background. I'm sure that you CAN tell cuz the blocks aren't straight lol!!! After I quilted the blocks, I sewed it onto cs.
Howdy for this challenge, so I was sooo excited when I saw it! To make sure that it wouldn't come off, I used Scor-Tape to secure the fringe onto my 'quilt'! In case you haven't seen this stamp yet, Howdy is one of the fabulous stamps in the NEW Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Sampler Edition #5 collection. Whether you buy one at a time, or purchase the whole sheet (which saves you money!) you'll always have very good quality stamps and oh so ca-uuuuute images lol!
copic bundles which Suzanne J. Dean has put together if you are looking to add to your collection (or just starting out!). When I first began my copic collection, I purchased the bundles. That way I knew the colors would work well together! The blue pearls as well as accents on the hat and shirt are Viva Decor Glitter Liner - Blue Sapphire. This tube is gonna last me forever, it's so big lol!
brads on with Fabric Fusion, but any good adhesive will do.
Head on over to Follow Your Heart where you'll find some outrageously GORGEOUS pieces of art from the SCACD DT. You'll leave with tons of inspiration!
Please remember to use any of the stamp lines that are available at SCACD when joining in the Challenge.
The 1st week of each month has a prize for those that participate that week.

THIS IS A PRIZE WEEK so get creating!

Thanks for visiting me today! I hope you enjoyed my project... I should be home late tomorrow night, so it will be awhile before I get to post again (no crafting, no computer... what am I gonna do???). I miss you already - sniff sniff.
I appreciate your prayers.
May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
