Quilted Thanks

Aaahhhh.... all is right in my world again.  The rain has returned to my corner of SouthWest Washington.  In truth, I think most of western WA is wet today.  :)  That means I got to play in my craft room!  YAY! 


With my recent return to quilting it only seems fitting that I should choose a "quilty" stamp set.  In all honesty, it was an accident, but it does look like a quilt pattern to me now that it's done. 

For the colors in my card I joined the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.


These are not colors I would normally choose.  Mostly because I don't care for Summer Starfruit, but I stamped off before stamping it on my Whisper White cardstock, and I liked the color much better.  It was nice to be able to use Bashful Blue again before it retires.  That's the biggest reason I chose this color challenge for my design. 


The forecast tomorrow is for sun, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for another rainy day in the craft room.  Otherwise I will have to be outside pulling more weeds.  :(  At least the rain will make them easier to pull.  :)


Either way though, I have a video ready to go for tomorrow, so be sure to come back and check it out.  Looking forward to seeing what YOU do with this challenge.  Let me know in the comments below if you decide to enter. 

Creative Blessings,
Heather North

Great card! I love the pattern across the front with the spatters. And truth be known, I feel the same way about Summer Starfruit....I'd trade it in for Bashful Blue any day :) So glad you joined the color challenge at HSS! Erika
