Quilted Birthday Mashup


Now that I'm officially on Spring Break, I can do the Friday Mashup ON Friday!  WoooHooo!  This one took me most of the morning - but I got it done.

The mash up today is:

  1. Make a project using the "Quilted Cards Technique".
  2. Or Make a project using "Something that's been forgotten (sitting in your stash forever)".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Quilted card with something you've forgotten about".
I had fun making this little "Quilt" and putting it through the Big Shot with the embossing folder.  The item that was forgotten in my stash of stuff was the little crocheted flower.  I bought these before Christmas with plans to create a "Flower Tree" with them and never got around to it.....so they got put away and buried.  I used reinker and an aqua painter to colour it blue.  The pink rhinestone brad is also something I rarely use.

I'm off to get some correspondence done and then maybe hit a few scrapbook pages.  Who know what the rest of the day will hold.  It's snowing, so I'm happy to stay inside and craft.

Hope you day moves in a direction you enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by,
Joan
