Busy Day ???

This is another card that we made at SU Stamp camp. I loved the idea so much I came home and made like 10 quilts then I realized I didn't have the die cut to make this so I have all these unfinished quilt sheets sitting here. This is a great way to use up your scrap pieces of card stock. The squares are 1 1/4 inch and you put them together on a plain sheet of paper but I don't have the measurements here then you place it on the die cut and make sure its even on all sized then run it through the Big Shot. I have to tell you this card to me is really plain I think I would have to add eyelets a better ribbon a greeting something but the quilt coloring is endless. If your interested in the pattern I'll look up the measurements but its a fun card to make. I have gone through the catalog and cannot come up with the DSP we used sorry.

The second card is made with the Animal Cracker Stamp Set, Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango cardstock and Razzleberry Lemonade DSP with the Dusty Durango swiss dot grosgrain. I put the ribbon on the DSP then punched 5 1 inch circles to put behind it then I added the bow and now that's my favorite bow.

Well the day went just as I didn't plan. I had planned to go to see the movie Harry Potter mainly because my grand kids went without me (feel the love?) and grocery shop but that didn't work out. Instead I settled down in my studio about 12:30 to do a card challenge I made up for my girls on Trades & Treasured Friendships Yahoo group. Most of us have been together for 3 years wow that's a long time. Anyway I furnished the cardstock, vellum, DSP, ribbon and they get to make a card with any image they want and any style they want using as little or as much of the paper. Its due on August 17th and when all 10 are here I will post all 11 on my Blog for all to see. I'm really excited to see what each girl will make but I finished mine today. About 2:30 I realized I hadn't gone shopping and I had Mom quieted down watching bowling from 1978 on ESPN classic (she loves bowling she bowled a 289 in 1972 and has a patch to prove it). Well Walmart's shelves were empty and it was my week for all the essentials so I made it home 2 hours later with alot of nothing to eat. But I can wipe my butt and blow my nose and my daughter would be proud I used $14.50 worth of coupons nothing like her but geez she the queen of couponing here in Cleveland. Dinner's done my blog is updated and now I'm gonna catch up on emails.

Bless you all!

Your quilty card is lovely! What a neat way to use up scraps. I love the bright cheerfulness of the ducky card -- too cute!! I can't wait to get my card-making packet and to see what you and everyone else makes with it. Sorry your shopping trip wasn't more fruitful, but at least you took care of the basics. ;-)

Very nice cards! I've seen a lot of these Top Note quilt cards but I didn't know how to put one together. Now I do, thanks to you :)

I believe that DSP is Bella Bleu on page 162. The pictures in the catalog make the paper look more gray than they really are. I have this pack of DSP and it looks just like the paper on your quilt card.

I'm looking forward to getting the package of supplies you sent out. It'll be fun to see what everyone creates with the same basic supplies.

I hope your day goes more like you want it to today. Be blessed!
