I know I said later in the week, but from the looks of the school calendar I’ll be lucky if I get to turn on my personal computer at all next week! This card was from sketch #9. Having been a quilter FOREVER, this sketch jumped off the screen at me. I even dusted off my fancy sewing machine, (that has sat unloved since I picked up a stamp ) , and added some honest to goodness stitches. The second I saw it I knew I would use Quilter’s Sampler from PTI. The sentiment is perfect . . .
“Birthdays are like quilts,
(inside) stitched together one year at a time.”
The papers are Cosmo Cricket’s Everafter series and Basic Grey from SU.
This card also didn’t make the cut. sketch #10 just screamed
