Happy National Quilting Day!

It's the 3rd Saturday in March. You can read more about it by doing a search online. One group started it with a few members and BAM!!! You know how quilters are. :o)
You won't see any quilts here just yet though. I'm off to my sewing room this morning to sew but wanted to post some pictures of cards we made on Thursday night. This is my Easter cards I made using my Big Shot for the background embossing, and the tag that the little egg is glued to. The little tag is left over from all those wedding favors (in black and yellow) we did a few months ago.
My daughter Stephanie, who just started out as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator found the design on a blog called Crafty Creations by Beth and wanted to make the little favor boxes. I wanted to make cards to mail so I changed up the design for mailing.
My buddy Neena worked on some thank you cards for people that sent gifts and flowers for her dad's funeral service. She was going to add a button but isn't this beautiful? She stamped the big design in clear and embossed it. She then used a sponge with chocolate chip ink to rub around the design and this is what she got. Mmmmm, so pretty.
Okay, off to go change my crafty hat and be a quilter today!! Have a great day, whatever craft form you choose!
