Foxy Fun


Keeping busy?  I'm trying to....

I took out a kit I bought last year at Joanne's, before the the border locked down and I could go shopping in the US.  I had a coupon, Quiltologie had a few cute designs and this Fox Frolic came home with me!  This fox kit spoke to me and it's been waiting patiently for me to assemble since then.

The fabrics are fun, and the instructions were pretty straight forward.  I assembled the top in a couple hours.  The next day I quilted it.  And the next night I attached the binding while watching tv.  

A nice new, bright artwork for gloomy winter days...

The final size is 17x19"

Keep safe and happy!

Happy Creative New Year!


A little late, but happy New Year!  I hope 2021 is more creative and fulfilling for you!
I plan it to be for me!

To start off, I'll share some more cards I just created.  It's winter and snowing outside, so of course I'm making water and fish cards!!!  I miss swimming and being in the water, so I guess this is where my thoughts are.

I keep all sorts of things to make into cards, including empty tissue boxes.  I had saved a few that were water themed and today we made them into 12 cards!

So start with some cards using as much of the box to show off the patterns....

Then use a hexi punch to use as much of the leftovers as possible....

The Hexi punch and greeting are from Stampin' Up!

All adding a stamped image that I coloured in.  The Koi is from the US company About Art Accents and the Octopus is unknown, I got him in an image swap.  Both ate coloured with Smooch paints that are in little nail polish type bottles with a built in brush.  I love the shimmery effect of these paints.

So now I've got 12 more cards to sell or use for notes to friends.  Because we NEED to keep in touch!

Hugs All!
