One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Hi Friends, welcome to another Seize the Birthday Challenge!

Shirley picked our topping this time and she is looking for faux or real stitching on our cards!

I went with the faux stitching! 

 I pulled out an older PTI set called Quilted summer and inked up the pieces and put them together like a lap quilt.  I printed the sentiment on my computer and added the Gina K birthday sentiment and vellum shadow.  I love the color combination.


PTI: Quilted Summer

Gina K:  birthday die

I hope you will join us in the challenge and please check out the design team and our new party guest:

 Lorraine from Lorraine's Loft!

I look forward to seeing you in the gallery!

Heart Hugs, friends!

Wow, I would love to have a beautiful quilt like this. I really like the colors. Thank you, Colleen for the link offer. Once you commented I can click on your name and get here. It will be like that for awhile until everyone pops in. I did have to sign in the google again to comment though.
