Flowers For My Friend

Here is another card that I made using Hop Into Spring from Clear Artistic Stamps. I stamped the flowers with Colorbox classic pigment ink in frost white and then colored in with a Gelly roll stardust clear glitter pen and a yellow SU marker. I also used the glitter pen on the flower vase. All other inks as well as cardstock are from SU. This card can be used during the Springtime in general, not just at Easter.

Easter candy carton

I made this little "milk" carton using a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.
milk carton

I used the Hop Into Spring stamp set from Clear Artistic Stamps for all of the images. All cardstock and ink is from Stampin' Up.

Won't this make an adorable little treat container for Easter? It is the same size and shape as the milk cartons that the kids buy at school.

Teapot Quilt Block

I made this quilt block for a BOM on a yahoo group that is dedicated to quilting. It is a design by Sindy Rodenmayer.
I did the applique by hand using black embroidery floss for the buttonhole stitch. Stitching by hand is sooooo much more fun than satin stitch on the machine. I love how it turned out!
Someday I hope to make a whole teapot quilt, but not sure of the color scheme yet. I will mail this block to the winner of the BOM this month.

Welcome to my blog everybody. This is where you will find what I manage to accomplish in my "free time". Hopefully my worlds will not collide and I will stick to my creative work only when I'm here. Feel free to post comments to let me know what you think. Thanks for looking.
