Quilted Xmas Wishes

Good afternoon to you all in the land of blog
Hope you are all enjoying your long weekend, I know I am.  Here is a little something that I have been working on for a couple of days, but was intrigued after seeing some wonderful creations, so just had to have a go.
I made a quilted Xmas Card.  After several thoughts, I eventually reverted to digital imagery.  I used some gorgeous papers from Bearly Mine.  I searched the web for quilting templates, I saved the image and opened this image and two different papers in my CS 4 Photoshop.  I layered the template over both papers, and then cut out the purple and glued on top of the pale blue to create this quilted effect.  I added a strip of snowflake punches and some beautiful embellishments, that I ordered from Crafty Ribbons wow they deliver quick don't they.
The image of course the amazing Kenny K and the sentiment is Wild Rose Studio.  The memory box snowflake as the background for the sentiment.

A short post from me today, but thank you for all the wonderful comments on my cover girl exposure.

here are the challenges I would like to enter this creation into

oh Baubles!!!!!


Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Yesterday Matt went fishing and all was quiet in the house, so as it did nothing but rain, I spent the day after the housework, in my Beach Hut.  Where I created several pieces, one I am really not sure about, but that may change as it grows on me. Although because I am not sure on it, I do need to replace it with something I do like, so will be doing that today after my shop for crafty bits :)

So what am I here for today then? Well I adored using one of the new images from Wild Rose Studio that much that I had another idea I wanted to try.  So here we go


I made a one layer Christmas Card in black and gold.
The image here is
