Thank you card

Above is the front of the thank you card I made today. I used a 4..75x6.75 cardstock embossed with a gears embossing plate. It's layered with navy cardstock. My DDIL has the embossing equipment. I distressed  the card with TH Faded Jeans and Archival Vintage Sepia. The stamps on the front are from Stampin Up. They are layered with craft and navy cardstocks.

The gears on the pocket on the back were cut on the Cricket, also thanks to my DDIL. They were inked with TH Faded Jeans. The stamp on the note on the back is from Michaels.

Grandkid visit and her art

We went out of town after my last posting for a week and then brought a grandchild home with us. I've been busy with her. Shelley is 10 and has been here almost 3 weeks. Her parents and brother arrived on Saturday afternoon and they'll be here a week before they all ago home.

Shelley has been collaging and quilting  while she's been here. Here are pictures of some of her work.

Dragonfly postcard
The dragonfly postcard was a "flopportunity" that turned into my favorite of all her art projects! I just love how her backgraound turned out.

Here's the quilt for her other grandmother that she just has the borders to sew on. I've cut it out and she's done all the sewing. She's a fantastic piecer and remember she's only 10!  It's come out to the exact size it's supposed to so far!
I have to go cut her borders now. Hope you've enjoyed seeing her work. Have a wonderful day.
