Hello! It's the 25th of the month and that means it's time for the Keeping Christmas hop. We are trying to make cards each month so when Christmas comes around we won't have a mad rush to make so many cards at once. I LOVE making Christmas cards all year round.
Kelly Lunceford will be having a give a way on her blog for this hop.
I couldn't wait to use my new Concord & 9th inks. As you can see I kept my card very simple and used red and gray. I was so tempted to add glitter to the rooftops but I refrained .
Thanks for the visit during these unbelievable times!
In all fairness, I did make this card before seeing the photo
(not a back link)
I am linking it because both my card and the photo are summertime fun and red, white and blue.
Hi there ! Hope all is well with you.
My husband had a week off so not much crafting. We were blessed to spend a few days at our daughter and her husband's lake house in beautiful Lake Arrowhead.
A few weeks ago I received the most beautiful patriotic quilt from my sister (brother's wife) . I made this card to say thank you.
I used the Papertrey Ink die ( that I use often) to cut material! It was almost perfect until I changed last layer of the frame to a lighter in color and fabric, material. I do love how easily the material cut with the die and a metal shim.
I will try post a picture of the quilt that I was given on July 4th.
I have been quilting lately as I have a brand new sewing machine! Trying to learn my new machine has taken a lot of time, as classes cannot start until next week. ( 🦠 )
This beautiful stamp came last week and I couldn't wait to use it, so I got up early this morning and made this simple card. I guess I chose orange ( usually go pink) because I wanted it to look like a California poppy ( state flower)
