For my card today, I used two of the newest Whipper Snapper cling sets, designed by Anna Wight! I combined Homespun Quilt with Spirit of Christmas. I knew that I wanted to use the star quilt square, the angel and the sentiment Wish Upon a Star, but at first I couldn't figure out how to bring it all together. Not being a quilter myself, the first thing I thought to do when I saw the blank square was to add words inside of it. While flipping through CardMaker's Sketch Book: Birthday Celebration, I found the perfect sketch for what I wanted to do and was inspired to create this 4" x 9" card. I popped every other quilt square so that the sentiment stands out a bit. I am really happy with the end result -- it is very rare for me to have my final product come together as I first imagine it in my head!
Now for the blog candy winner...
A big thank you to everyone who visited and commented on my blog candy post. I appreciate your sweet comments, and I loved to hear your fall traditions and/or favorite fall activities. Random.org picked...
- Happy Blog Anniversary!!! It's been great following a very talented person. We just moved to Texas, but when we lived in Wisconsin we had a lot of traditions. How can you not love the fall air? We used to travel north to an Apple Orchard and pick up LOTS of apples, enjoy a carmel apple or maybe even fresh apple pie. We would go home and I would make my children's favorite Apple Crisp. Thanks for asking and thanks for sharing.
