weekend cardmaking...

Today I'm sharing some more cards I made with the newest Lizzie Anne Sixlet stamps! For this first card I mixed the newer Playful Pals set with an older set, The Great Outdoors. Those waves and fishing pole make a cute addition to the fishbowl image! My youngest, the fishing addict, thinks this is a dream way to fish. No mosquitoes and you know there are fish out there. Good thing we don't have any aquariums because I could totally see the little stinker trying this. LOL! The fishing pole stamp originally has the line close to the pole. For my card I inked up and stamped only the pole. Next I went in and stamped just the hook where I wanted it. All that was left to do was draw a line in and connect the two.

I've always wanted to try quilting! My grandmother taught me to sew when I was probably around 6 or 7, but to this day I can't sew at straight line. When I saw the quilting quote in the Vintage Verses Sixlet set I thought it was time to try quilting...with paper (wink)!

Wendy, your first card is so cute I can't stand it. LOVE the mesh ribbon on the side. It finishes the card off perfectly.
I never knew now to sew until I started quilting. I think sewing straight is so easy if you have the right foot on your machine. But then I had friends in my quilting group that couldn't keep a straight line...I think it depends if you are a science/math person or more creative mind. I always loved math.
Sorry for the rambling! Have a great Sunday.
Hugs and smiles

I forgot to mention that I love the second card. What a great idea to create this beautiful quilted background for that saying.
(I really stop typing now, I promise).
