A sewing project,some fabric, and a couple of cards...

So, I finished my mom's bag and am pretty pleased with how it turned out.  The pattern was kind of strange and I think I would do some things differently if I make this bag again...
I got this fabric today for a quilt- I love the colors!
I also got this fabric and thought I would make my daughter a bag.  She has actually requested a skirt, so I will do that instead.  I will post pictures of the quilt and the skirt when they are done.
I almost forgot to make cards for my son for his birthday- so I did those really quick yesterday before I worked on my mom's bag.  I think they turned out great.  I used DCWV paper for the background on this one, with silver star stickers and the Jubilee cartridge for this one from his sisters.
This one is from us- I used the Wild Card Cartridge for this one.  I picked this design because he is our little monster.  I can't believe he is going to be 9 this week.  Where has time gone?

I'm thinking that I will go back and find some of my old sewing projects and post those soon.  That is where my love for creating started (and the name of my Etsy store and this blog)....  Watch for those soon.  :)

Mother's Day

Hi all....  Just thought I would share the Mother's Day cards that I made for my  mom and mother-in-law as well as a couple of other cards I did.  I got the Walk in My Garden cartridge and I love it.  I'm waiting now for Ashlyn's Alphabet and Designer Calendar. 
I made the changes to this that I talked about previously.  I just need to get a stamp that says Sending Some Sunshine or something.  Or, I guess I could print it.  I need to look into digital stamping a little bit, I think.
This is all freehand- this is from the Taj Mahal paper from DCWV, I think.  I love the colors.  The wording is a rub-on that I got in the dollar bins at Joanns.
I made this for my sweet niece's 3rd birthday.  It's with my Wild Card cartridge, but I added 2 candles for her.

I probably won't get much card making done for awhile- my mom asked me to make a bag for her.  The fabric is cut, I just need to sit down and sew it.  Pictures will be posted when I finish.
