SC 423

Good morning, Friends! I hope that you are all having a fabulous week! We seem to have a little "bug" going around our family the last few days. Nick had it a couple of weeks ago ending with a need for more asthma medicine. Geez that stuff it expensive!! But he is doing so much better now. But now my husband seems to have some chest congestion and I am starting to feel a scratchy throat. Time to get serious and fight back - lol! Sure hope it's minor. Today I am excited to have the second class for hand piecing! Yup! I am making a small wall hanging quilt completely done by hand! It's the way my grandmother did it and I am so excited to learn it! I don't know if I will do a lot like this but it's good to learn and I want to keep trying it!

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Splitcoast. This is actually last week's sketch but I did this card for a swap, too. I wanted something very masculine. I stamped the coral image from By the Tide in Summer Starfruit (stamping off once before stamping onto the card stock) onto Summer Starfruit and then sponged the edges in Summer Starfruit. Then I adhered a strip of Midnight Muse and wrapped some linen thread around this a few times. I stamped the greeting from Made for You in Soft Suede and then adhered the panel to a card base of Soft Suede. I stamped the coral image again in Soft Suede onto a piece of Very Vanilla and sponged the edges in Soft Suede. This is adhered to a piece of Soft Suede and then popped up onto the card. I stamped the fish in Midnight Muse onto Very Vanilla and cut it out. This is popped up onto the card as well. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
