Creating once again! Woo Hoo!

I know I have been removed from blogging for quite some time. I have really missed creating and sharing with people. I still read all of my favorite blogs each day (so I wasn't completely removed).

Last night my friend Kim came over to quilt and make cards. We started the night out by purchasing the new releases from My Favorite Things. I can't wait to get the travel set and the mini dog set. They are both so cute. I should be pretty excited to get the mail in the next few weeks. I have the Chichiboulie stamps coming from I had to have them after I saw Jen's card (you should go check it out...roll to the bottom of her blog b/c it is about 7 posts old but spectacular). My rectangle scallop nestabilities and the "Its my birthday" set from CICI designs will also be coming. I can't wait!!!

After purchasing some stamps we headed to my craft room and cut out a jelly roll quilt. We had a lot of fun designing the color schemes on our own and then seeing how ours differed when we were done even though we were using the exact same fabrics. I will post them when they are stitched together. Hopefully that will be soon.

Next we moved on to card making. She brought over all her Riley the Moose stamps. I immediately was drawn to the Riley in the airplane and made this card.

I tried the liquid applique finally. I love it! It made the clouds really pop! I used a piece of My Minds Eye paper from last year and then real red card and bashful blue card stock from Stampin up. The card size is 61/4" wide by 7" tall. I got the envelopes to fit this at Wal-mart. I also paper pieced the airplane. The stamp that says happy birthday is from the "hey there cupcake set" from eclectic paperie. It fit perfectly.

Today is Mothers Day! Lots of love to all the wonderful mothers out there! Especially my friends Paula, Kim, Michelle, Denise, and Vanessa!
