ANOTHER CHARITY QUILT

HEY BLOGGIES,

I just finished another charity quilt. This one is for a silent auction for Surmounters of Texas, an on the ground horse therapy program for Disabled Veterans.  Their facebook page is HERE.  The calmness and peace of these sweet Gypsy Horses helps them to open up to each other and counselors regarding their thoughts and feelings, as well as help them to start to heal.

They are having an event in Fort Worth in October and there will be a silent auction there as well as some venders. All are invited and you can see more on their facebook page.

Click on the photos to get the larger size so you can see up close the adorable fox fabric I chose.

I used assorted orange prints with the fox fabric and then added some primary color striped fabric at two of the ends.

I used the backing to come around to the front as a self binding.

I have a cute little wooden fox photo holder and some fox cards I am making with the fox builder punch that will also go with this little set at the auction.

Thank you for stopping by.

CHARITY QUILT COMPLETED

HEY BLOGGIES,

It has been a while since I completed some charity quilts.  With all the flooding in Texas and Louisiana, I decided it was time to get busy again.

This first quilt, "Noah's Arks" was made from scrap cloth that someone from church donated towards the charity quilts,  Arks is plural because with so much flooding, each family needs a safe way to leave the flooding areas, not to mention that there are many Arks on this cute cuddly quilt.,

My sweet rescued Pomeranian, Jewel, photo bombed our quilt!!  :-)


 Because it was leftover scraps,  I did not have quite enough full pieces to complete 12 blocks.  So as you can see in the middle row, I used several small pieces to make the same color blocks. But in looking at it, especially if it was wrapped around a toddler, I don't think it will matter that much.


 I used red sashing around each block and around the whole quilt.  The back is a bright solid orange which I brought around to the front to create it's own self binding.  I tied the quilt with soft thin baby yard in a bright blue.

Thanks for stopping by. I have two more quilts in various stages that I will be posting in the next few weeks.

A BOX FOR YOUR CARD SET?? NO - SOMETHING MUCH BETTER

HEY BLOGGIES,

What is better than gifting a beautiful set of your personally created cards to a friend?  A SPECIAL CONTAINER for them too!!  And I am NOT talking about just a box!!

HOW ABOUT A PURSE!!



On the last one above you can see the size with the card peeping out from inside it's purse container.


Here it is up close with one of the cards propped again so you can see the size of the purse.  Isn't it adorable!!  It is made with designer paper for the bag part and the the edging, handles and purse bottom with cardstock.  There are lots of different directions on the internet. I used the directions from fellow demonstrator Kirsteen at  www.creatinwithkirsteen.com

As you can see from my different purses above, I made them different heights and widths to experiment with which one I like the best. 


One more photo for you to compare size of the card to size of the purse.

Thanks for stopping by.

CARD WITH SIMON SAYS STAMP SUPPLIES

HEY BLOGGIES,

Sorry it has been so long since I made a card and posted.  I have been busy doing all those “summer chores” you have to do on a small farm.  Plus I really enjoy spending as much time as I can with my Gypsy Horses.  They are such characters and very personable.  They LOVE to be with people and are so curious about every little thing I do.  I tell my hubby that we are lucky they don’t have thumbs because I think they would be driving my tractor!!

OK, I have a bright card I made using the Simon Says Stamp card kit “Look for the Miracles”.

 In addition to the supplies supplied in the kit, I also used markers from Stampin' Up!, alcohol markers, gelato on the face of the sun, glimmer and glitter pens, and an aqua painter for the rose colored outline of the colored piece.


Here is a close up of the sentiment so you can see how I colored with shadows and highlights.


Hope you have enjoyed seeing my creation.  I absolutely LOVE the background paper and all the papers included in this kit.
