Quilts and Quilts

Yep I got busy with my Top Note Die again today and made some cards for 'Operation Write Home' soldiers. I used SU Real Red, White (Cuddlebug Snowflakes, and DSP to put the card together. Then I punched out some snow flakes, and stamped the verse from Papertrey Ink for the Quilters Sampler on vellum so as to not deter from the quilt pattern. I punched a little hole in the vellum and used silver cord to hold the salutation up.
Once I find a cute pattern I stay with it since I have to make 100 Christmas cards for "Operation Write Home". I used SU Vanilla cs as my base, Old Olive with Cuddlebug Snowflake and all the rest is the same.
This one is SU Chocolate Chip, SU Old Olive, White (Cuddlebug Dots), and the SU felt flowers. Once again SU Vanilla cs, Old Olive (Cuddlebug Snowflake), SU DSP, vellum and SU felt flower with clear dew drop.Surprised ya didn't I ? This was a fun project I did a few days ago but I never finished it so I did today. I'm still unsure if I like it but I used SU Going Gray cs, silver and then punched out little leaves used my white pen to draw stitches on and lastly I used Really Rust cardstock for my salutation punched two holes on each end then threaded copper cord through it and anchored in the back.
Yep, I'm trying to stay busy waiting for the contractors to finish my basement. It sure doesn't look like it will be done before I leave which will be one more thing for my brother to do. I have all my cooking, shopping, groceries and errands done so now I'll play for a few day.
I have a challenge to post for all of you on the last day before I take my leave of absence for a few weeks while my hip heals. Until then know I'm thinking of how to entertain you next.
God Bless

Each of these cards are great! The Top Note quilts are so much fun. I'm planning to make a bunch of Christmas ones too, if I can just find the time. Your Christmas ones inspire me :)
