Four season Thank you!

This card is for a couple we met on that August weekend.  They were so welcoming and friendly - we felt right at home!!
I found this image (Magenta) in my stash and watercoloured it!  I love how it features the four seasons!!  Once coloured, I layered it onto green and mounted it to my embellished card front using 3D foam tape.  The card front was stamped with a stipple stamp and layered with two strips on the left hand side.  After mounting my image I added three dots of green on the blue strip and added the layered greeting (SU).
I love watercolouring and this was a fun image to colour!!


Fall Thank you card

A thank you card for someone who hosted us at the beginning of August and I just remembered today that I should get a card out to him.  Life should not get so hectic that we forget to be grateful and express that to those close to us!!
This was a quick and easy card!  I dug into my stash buckets and found this sunflower image, the beautiful background paper, a coordinating greeting and some sparkly blue fiber to finish it off!!  I added several colours using glitter gel pens to my watercoloured image but is does not show up well on my photo.  The background paper has some silver accents and the fiber has a thin copper line in it!
I am happy with how all of it came together and it is on its way tomorrow!!!


More little quilts!

I have been working on these little quilts on our various trips in the car this summer!!  They were inspired by Teesha Moore's little quilts which she has used for making up journal covers.  Here and here are the ones I made previously.  It is only a little stash so far but I am happy with my little collection.
These were made up of cotton fabrics and I found them so much easier to sew.
I am looking forward to having enough to make up a journal cover - maybe by the summer of next year.
This is a great way to use up scraps of fabric that are left over from quilting or even from clothing that you no longer wear or have been ruined with a stain (bleach!!)
