Hi friends. Yes, I'm still here. I know it's been a long time since I've posted. I really haven't been doing much crafting. I guess I needed a break. I've done a bit of gardening. I had to replace all my lavender plants that died over the cold winter. I think because of all the rain we've been having, they aren't doing too well. Of course, they need to be weeded badly - not something I enjoy and it's really too wet.
I do have some tomatoes coming on -- little green ones. And a few tiny zucchini plants are up - I planted those really late, but we'll enjoy some before summer is over.
I took my hexagon quilt with me to my lace guild, because I knew I could set up some extra tables and pin the layers together. So I have that ready to baste and start quilting.
Last night I made a card for the Rubber Stamp Event contest, but will wait to show that one to you. I won 2nd place last year, so here's hoping.
Here are the cards we made in my technique class last week.
The first is a pop up box card -- a bit labor intensive, but well worth it. There's a tutorial here.
The 2nd is a card using inchies. Little works of art that are only an inch square. They are great for using your tiny stamps.
The 3rd is a stair step card. A tutorial can be found here.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
