This quilt card is the focus for the giveaway for this week!!!! Ready for the rules, GET CREATIVE and or give me feedback! Also, if you want a hint to some of the hidden meaning, go to the post about Green Fairy being my celestial goddess....
My twin nephews will be born this Friday at noon and I made this large "greeting card" for the mom, Amanda. I am calling these quilts cards because they are stiff using iron on material that would normally be used to give paper dolls shape..Know what I mean?
I have put symbolism and some silly in it. What a surprise, Huh?
Rules: 1. Come up with the list or
2. tell a story about the final days before a birth or
3. silly piece of advice for the first-time parents or
4. just leave a comment and you will be added to a drawing.
5. If you are willing, for an addition to drawing, leave a piece of feedback on quilt designs/ style you like to see when you visit me.
Fat quarters, including the pears fabric in this card will be yours or a greeting card if you prefer. Have fun with it!!!!! The giveaway ends when I get the text that the babies are here, healthy, and screaming, "WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
My mother-in-law, Lynda, is as fresh as this card is and her laugh is contagious!! I have the backing on, hand stitching done in my signature primitive style and ready for the mail. This may become a new trend of mine! Oh man, I need a pedicure!!!!!
Noah sweetly asked to make a card with me for Seany, his big bro! I was in seventh heaven as I ironed and glued his above creation. He asked to buy a Hot Wheel tomorrow to be enclosed in the gift pkg. Something so endearing to me that my near 20 year old son and 8 year old son are this close and that he still will welcome a Hot Wheel!!!
And Kevin....if you are reading this, you too can enter since your entries for the giveaway may be quite fascinating as the EXPECTANT FATHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
