Another from the Reject Pile


         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! I don't know smile  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 Winking smile) , 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.

                           Patriotic door (411x640)     





         This card also didn’t make the cut.  sketch #10 just screamed
