Butterfly and Dragonfly Stickers - More Purple

Hello Everyone!
Back today with more purple cards!  I used Basic Grey papers and stickers on the two cards below.  The first has a cheerful butterfly.

This card uses a dragonfly, border, and a circle sticker.   I stamped the sentiment and added a ribbon. 

Just a fun way to use those nice stickers that come with paper packs.  And, of course the lovely purple! 

Hope your day is filled with plenty of quality crafting time!!

Bright Purple?! You Bet!

Hello Fellow Crafting Divas,
Do you find it hard to use purple on your cards?  Well, not today!  Check out all the purple on today's projects.

This card uses Basic Grey papers.  The circles are stamped with Stampin' Up stamps.  I added a die cut "Happy"

This card uses sticker borders.  The circle is a stamp from SU.  Added a die cut hello.

Love the purple!!  How do you like to use purple on your cards??
See you next time with two more positively purple cards!!
Have a lovely day.

Patchwork Blankets

Hello Everyone!
A bit of change up today!  I wanted to share the photos of three patchwork blankets I made using Polar Fleece scraps.  I did quite a bit of sewing this winter making warm and cozy jackets out of the fleece.  I had all these pieces left over ---I certainly could not waste those!!  Here are the results.

This is the smallest of the blankets - about 36 inches square.

This blanket is about 40" x 60" and I used all the blue pieces I had.

This blanket is 60" x 70" and uses grays, blacks, and blues.

The blankets have Polar Fleece backing too.  So they are double thick and plenty warm!  Because the fabric is knit and stretches, the piecing was very forgiving and I did not worry over much about accuracy.  Actually, I really enjoyed the process.  I haven't done much quilting/piecework in a while and I feel inspired to make a few more things. 
I will be back next time with more cards!!  Hope your day is super!!
