A Hundred and Plenty is ALL They Need to Know!

quilted drops

We’re getting new health insurance and today someone had to come out to take our blood pressure, “sample” in a cup, height, blood sample…and weight. Now, c’mon! That’s just plain depressing! Why couldn’t she just put down 100 and plenty and be done with it! Sheesh!

To console myself and feel better, I had to make a card and eat a box of chocolates!
Ok… so, I just made a card, no chocolates hrmmph!

My good friend Heidi, over at Pink Hedgehog, sent me some of these Oregon Raindrops…she dyes them herself! What a deal and so many colors! Plus I got some new Spellbinders (labels 9) from her…I had to play!

The Ways To Use It challenge yesterday was “quilting” in one way or another, and today’s Limited Supply challenge was to have a “girl” on the card……………….and NO pattern paperOOPS! guess it won’t qualify for that challenge! haha

LSC243 Quilted Feel BetterI used Melanie’s Inspiration Mosaic from Gina K as a guide on a piece of white cs and cut each piece of paper to fit the rectangles. I didn’t bother notching out pieces, just glued them over top of each other in the correlating spaces! I used a fine tip artist pen to
re-define the block lines and to make the faux stitches after piercing the holes.

The pink layer is Copic’d using the same color as Riley’s flower. Riley is from Whipper Snapper. While she was in the Nestie, I used my dauber and sponged.

Oh, and by the way…see those crooked stitches? Another reason why I don’t quilt! This is as close as I’m gonna get!
