Have the Best Day Ever

Hello, Hope you are doing well. I finally had a moment to post this card. Today I am once again using part of the Home Sweet Quilt Collection over at Spellbinders. This time, I have used the Layered Windmill Etched Dies. This die is relaxing to put together and is rather large. It measures 5 x 5, so makes for a great square card. I have used some solid cardstock and some Designer Series Paper to make my quilt pattern come to life. All products are from Spellbinders. The greeting is from the Many Birthdays stamp set. The two tiny flowers are from the Parcel and Post set. I used some dimensionals under the center square and the greeting. Everything is linked below.

This is day 22 with my dad in Hospice care. The Hospice team along with so many others are just amazed that he is still with us. He is certainly the toughest man I know. I pray his suffering doesn’t go on much longer as it is so heartbreaking to watch.

I am wishing for Peace this Holiday Season, for all! Take care, Nanc’

Happy Day

I am back with another card using the latest release from Spellbinders. This Collection is called Home Sweet Quilt and was designed by Becca Feeken. For this card, I used the Filigree Eight Point Star once again and paired it with the words Happy Day from the Gift Borders and Sentiments set. The small flowers came from the Sealed Wildflowers set. I used my old Fiskers Victorian cutter to add interest to the bottom of the card. I cut it a little too close and it wasn’t my most brilliant idea to even try, especially after it was all glued down. The stitched fishtail die that my flowers are on comes in the Filigree Set as well. I opted for a bit of a different color combination. I thought perhaps it could be a Welcome baby card. What do you think?

I hope you have a Happy Day, however you choose to spend it. The last 15 days certainly have not been the happiest but I am enjoying every moment I have left with my dad. My oldest sister is with him as I write this post, thankful these latest cards were done ahead of time.

Take care, Nanc’


Home Sweet Quilt

Hello, Today I am sharing a card with you that is part of the new Home Sweet Quilt Collection from Spellbinders. I have used pieces of the Filligree Eight Point Star Collection to make my card. This set was designed by the talented Becca Feeken. I have paired my card with another Spellbinders set, Noel, as I wanted to make a Christmas card. I really love how this came together, just like I envisioned.

A Few Card Details: First, I blended my background with 5 colors of Oxide Inks. Next, I decided to pull out my Snowflake EF by Cuttlebug and give the background a little interest, later to realize that I embossed the wrong side of the paper. UGH! I decided, to forge ahead as it didn’t look so bad de-embossed after all. Plus, it was easier to get all my dies to adhere to a flatter surface. Last, it was time to assemble all the dies. The small snowflakes in the center of my Eight Point star are from the NOEL set as well. I doubled the Noel letters in white to tie the card altogether. In the end, I really love the way this card turned out!

I will be linking my card up with Darnell over at NBUS as the Home Sweet Quilt Collection is brand new.

I will be back in a day or two with another card using this collection.

Update on my dad, he is hanging on and we don’t know why. It breaks my heart to see him suffering so. I adore him!

I hope you get to do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’
