While I was perusing a craft store this morning, I found these cute stars and my thought was Star of Bethlehem- Church project for craft day, hmm what could I do with these? HEY! Why not stamp the Bethlehem scene and color it in? Well, here is my first one.
I think I need to slow down and be more precise with the blue background but other than that I really like the way it turned out. oh and make sure its a bit more to the left & centered.
What do you think?
Have you ever used this technique? Do you know what it is?
Hubby and I had a day to ourselves on Saturday, so we went for a jaunt and ended up in Branson Missouri- 45 minutes from home. We stopped at the quilt store, and then at the scrapbooking store and the nice lady said they allow people to photograph their samples- so I did!
I really like this card and so I took a photo to share with all of you and as this is Breast cancer awareness month and it really fits all kinds of cancer. I have other photos of other wonderful projects from the store, but I will share one at a time!
We then went to Branson Landing for lunch and some shopping- you know- Kirtland store, Yankee Candle, Bass Pro etc... what an AWESOME day! The best part? Being with my husband and having just us time!
I hope you are having as wonderfully productive a day as I am. The weather here is simply gorgeous and sunny yet not hot, the leaves are finally turning slowly and life is absolutely wonderful!
I am working on projects for the upcoming women's expo booth in Springfield Nov 9-11. I hope to have them done by tomorrow so I can share!
have a great day! g
I bought some glimmer mist in the China Black color- wow! $7.49 a bottle for them! It was the only color of 4 that they had that I liked. I would love some tips and ideas on what to do with it! lol Isn't this the same as taking our SU reinkers in a bottle with some water and putting in pearl ex?
Yesterday I started a project for our High School Play-
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers!
They brought me all the scraps from the costumes to make into a quit that will be raffled off as a fundraiser for the organization.
Here is what it looks like as of today. The director is buying backing fabric tomorrow and I hope to find someone to quickly machine quilt it next week so I can bind it and have it all done by play time in November. Otherwise I will have to go rent a machine (like I did with my snowman quilt) and do it myself.
The squares are all cut at 6.5" and sewn they are 6".
There are 15 across and 17 down. Making it a queen size quilt top.
I will be sure to share a photo of it when it is completely finished, but I wanted you to see what I have been doing with the help of a wonderful friend- Jean Johnson. I could not have had it done so quickly without her help!
and now a view from the other side
I hope your day is productive also!
Tonight is High school FOOTBALL- time to put on my LRHS garb and dress warm!!! Me thinks a thermos of cocoa will be needed!
My new stamping friends Teresa and Donna came for the day and we were to stamp 31 cards but with a limited amount of time we stamped 28 instead!
That leaves 15 cards for me to stamp and send as RAKS!
Here are a couple photos from the day! This table is 8 foot long by 3 ft and is loaded with projects ready for stamping!
and then. I had to extend the kits to the smaller end table!
Now, here is our worktable before we messed it up! lol
And now the stampers!
We had so much fun!! I made a special lunch and we stamped, laughed and stamped some more! I am very tired tonight!
Thursday is quilting day, I have been asked to make the raffle quilt for our school play 7 Brides for 7 Brothers, the quilt is out of the fabric used to make the costumes. I have 2 weeks to start and finish it- argh! I am glad that Jean from Tops is coming to rescue me from making it all alone! I will post photos as we work on it so stay tuned!
