Hello Family, Friends, and Stampers!
Today's card just gave me 'warm fuzzies'!
I have Three Sisters who Quilt!
Alas, I did not inherit the sewing bug...I rather despise it!
But, I can appreciate the time and effort that goes into making
a quilt, as I have seen done, by my Sisters. Gosh, they all
do beautiful work! I love looking at what they have made, it
is just amazing to me how it is done...but not enough for me
to pick it up...it involves sewing! I mean, if I have to mend something, I will, but I prefer to be artsy with my Card making!
Today's Challenge is an 'Either Or' or 'Both' kind of Challenge!
Here is the Challenge!
I Chose to copy the Quilt on the right!
Here is my Card!
Here is the inside, I chose to leave it blank.
It will leave me room to write. I made 3 of these cards.
Every year we Sisters make it a point to get together, usually in October.
I will be giving each of them one of these cards.
This is about as close as I am going to get to making a Quilt!
Here is my Card with a stamped to match envelope!
I made the flap of the envelope to look like the 'Quilt'!
Here is a 'close-up of the envelope flap!
The 'Card Front' again!
