Mending a Broken Heart

I made these quilt blocks for a Block of the Month exchange. Unfortunately I'm late with these and couldn't be in the drawing--they were due on the 25th--but I will still mail them to the winner.

Two nice things about this Mending a Broken Heart pattern: you make 2 blocks at a time, and it's quilt-as-you-go and the blocks are ready to put together right away.

If you use Insul-bright batting, these blocks would make nice potholders. Hmmm, there's a thought.....

Have a good Saturday.

Cool Papers

Another Father's Day card, using this week's sketch challenge from Splitcoast Stampers--SC269.

These papers from Basic Grey are so pretty. It's the Marrakech collection--I just love them. The stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms.

Happy Friday to everyone!

Vicky's Sketch

Here's a card that I made using Vicky's Sketch from 365 cards. I love the combination of olive green and light blue--it's one of my favorites. I thought that the silver brads made the card even more masculine. The stamp is from Lizzie Anne Designs.

CPS 155

This card uses the sketch from the Card Positioning Systems CPS155. These Making Memories flowers are so much fun to layer and play with. I thought of them as soon as I saw the circle element of the card sketch. Stamps are from Cornish Heritage Farms and Stampin' Up.

I'm Trying, OK?

Well, I admit it. I have been completely ignoring my blog for the last few weeks. It could have been abducted by aliens and I would never have known--that's how neglectful I've been. Truth is, I haven't spent much time at all at my craft table lately. That needs to change, don't you think?

I did manage a quick birthday card on Saturday for our friend Jeff's 50th:

I received this Camaro stamp in a grab bag from Cornish Heritage Farms and was wondering what in the world I was going to do with it. Turned out it was perfect for this birthday card. For the corner I punched a circle out of silver shimmer paper and used mismatched number rub-ons for a vintage look.

I'm hoping to have more pics to show you this coming week. I'm working on a set of Mother's and Father's Day cards--just haven't taken the photos of them yet.

Thanks for looking!
