Can you believe that I'm back so soon? I am wanting to create and post more often these days :D That's a good thing... especially since it's still so HOT! I have my faithful puppy dog snoozing on the cool floor beside me as I prepare this post. Ahhhhh... the life of a dog lol!
See that box by his head? It's full of stamps I need to go through and send as candy to one of my blog friends!!! Soon.......
He's abandoned his toy after he ate the treat of course... see that white spot in the lower right corner? That's his paw. Yes, the floor is much cooler!
Ooops! My camera was a little too loud lol! He's not really awake... he just flopped right back where he was (see photo #1) LOL!!!
Are you a 'die-hard' crafter who loves practically every craft? I couldn't quite put myself in that category, but I do love to have my hands on a wide variety!!! Quilting is one of them. I have numerous unfinished quilts waiting for 'someday!'
Today's card is a faux quilt. Well, ok... not even 'faux' but it was fun to make :D
I've seen the technique I used around blogland (I think some call it Pillow Top). What I've noticed on mine though, is that the 'seams' were pretty light. I should have used a darker color! So to remedy this, I decided that I would 'stitch in the ditch' (a term that refers to quilting following the seams) using my copic multiliner.
This is the cutie-pie I used. I'm in love with her ♥ She's called Big Hat Peeker by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. She's colored with copics and accented with both Ice Silks and Stickles. ShinHan Twin Touch Markers can be found HERE.

The tag is a double decker I created using Memory Box Classic Tags. The distress ink I used to create the background and edge the tag is Weathered Wood. The pearls were created using Viva Decor Paper Pen in Opal (20% off!). I just picked up a package of safety pins at my local grocery store for 25 cents! I thought it would fit in nicely with this theme :D I used Scrapper's Floss for the thread HERE. I really like how it doesn't unravel like thread. It is a bit thicker, but as you can see, it knots up beautifully... AND I need every color LOL!!!
All gluing was done using ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever (my FAVE!!!). One of the reasons I LOVE it so much is that it's quick and easy adhering paper layers. Just a little is needed and it's STRONG! I don't have to try and remember how to reload my ATG again...and again...and again hee hee!
