Quilted Love

Like the new picture in the header? Yes that is the view from my craft room, I am very lucky! It is on a smallish lake and I get to see the geraniums from up here or when I am in the yard. This card was made for the Monday color challenge on StampTV, my favorite hangout! I can tell you that the card did not turn out the way it was in my head (hate when that happens!). I knew I wanted to paper piece the quilt (took me a while to do I can tell you!) I knew that I needed to use those colors and I knew that I wanted to use Nina's sketch for her anniversary blog and to use the Love theme for the SSCC. I do love the quilt - wish I could hang it up on my wall. Thanks for stopping by!

This is gorgeous, I love Nina's work and her adorable images and you have used this beautifully! Great colouring too! Quilts are perfect to show love to someone - each stitch is lovingly done! This is a great card for this weeks challenge! Thanks for playing along at Stampin' Sisters in Christ! {{{hugs}}}

Wow this is beautiful! I love quilts and have made many, and they ARE a labor of love!!! Your colors are just gorgeous! I can't take my eyes off the view from your craft room either! I too enjoy a beautiful water view though no where as pretty a beach area! You are truly blessed!!! Thanks for joining us at SSCC!

That is adorable and wow, what a view from your craft room! That would be inspirational for sure. I would enjoy having a quilt such as that hanging on my wall too and I am sure the recipient will enjoy the card. Thanks for participating in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week.
