Allan's Quilt

 I made this quilt for my brother Allan, who is fighting throat cancer, I thought it might give him some comfort when those horrid cancer treatments have him feeling like doing nothing else but curling up on the couch.

I ordered the Man From Snowy River (his favourite movie), fabric panel online and when it came, I just kept adding borders until I felt it was large enough to snuggle under.
I quilted it with a large stipple design, I wanted the quilt to stay soft and comfy.








Leonie Pujol Rag Doll

I have two more cards to share that I made for Kaaren at Fat Cats Card Corner.



The dies I've used are:
the leonie Pujol Rag Doll Stamp set
Sue Wilson Tropical Hibiscus Die set
Spellbinders Emmeline Treillage - Venice Lace


I've used the leonie Pujol Rag Doll Stamp set to do some copic colouring, paper piecing and added glossy accents to the hearts in her hair, her patent leather shoes lol, the star in her hands and the Happy Everything.


I also used the Sue Wilson-Tropical Hibiscus die set and the Memory Box/Poppy stamps lavender Stems left Corner Die.

New cards for Fat Cats Card Corner

I'm back making cards for Kaaren at Fat Cats Card Corner after a bit of time off for moving house/unit.

The Fat Cats Card Corner products I've used are the Marianne Design Creatables Petra's Circle w/Bird LR0457, the Marianne Creatables Frogs and Dragonfly LR0461, and the beautiful papers from the 6"x6" Rambling Rose Paper Pad by Ultimate Crafts
The flowers I made using the Sue Wilson Perfect Peony Die and the leaves are Spellbinders Foliage.



I only used the Marianne Design Creatables Petra's Circle w/Bird LR0457 for this card as well as the 
Marianne Craftable Basic Circle CR1331 to cut the center image.


Here I've again used the Marianne Design Creatables Petra's Circle w/Bird LR0457, the Marianne Creatables Frogs and Dragonfly LR0461, and the beautiful papers from the 6"x6" Rambling Rose Paper Pad by Ultimate Crafts. I love the little red eyed green tree frogs so coloured my frogs to look like them.


Marianne Design Creatables Petra's Circle w/Bird LR0457, the Marianne Creatables Frogs and Dragonfly LR0461, Marianne Creatables Tiny's Cattails LR0409.
the embossing folder I used is the Sue Wilson Dotted Wave Pinpoint.

More Orchids

There isn't  much crafting going on here as we are in the process of moving, from a rather roomy two bedroom unit into a very small two bedroom unit.
It's going to be a bit of a challenge fitting my sewing set up and my craft room into one small bedroom but it's a challenge I'm up for.

In the meantime here are two more orchid cards I made a while back, one for a sister in laws 60th birthday and the other for our youngest daughters birthday.






And then there was this gold fish slider card I made for our great grandsons 2nd birthday.

Butterflies and Orchids

I love seeing images of Butterflies and Orchids they are such a beautiful combination.
and so I made some orchids using the Marianne Design Collectible Orchids die set.
The butterflies are a rubber stamp from URBAN Stamps which I coloured with copics and cut them out by hand.


Also used was the Spellbinders Basic Lattice Die.
Marianne Design Craftables Circle Die.
Cheery Lynn Fanciful flourish and Sue Wilson Laurel Leaves.


I created the background for this one using the Spellbinders Lovin' Diamonds die as a stencil and spritzing on some Dylusions Ink spray, Calypso Teal.
