Sort of Looks Like a Quilt...





But it's paper. Our small sewing and craft group had a cardmaking workshop last week. What fun. There were scraps and bits all over the place. But we managed to make some cute cards. The patchwork heart card shown above was a kit made up by quilting and cardmaking friend, Prue. She made all the elements. I simply had to arrange and glue them in place. She even provided a template for the heart so I can make more of these. Pretty! I like the pen-stitching she did on this one.



And here's an assortment of other cards we made. This was our practice session. We'd like to get familiar enough with cardmaking materials and techniques that we can participate in Operation Write Home. This organization gathers handmade cards and provides them to deployed military men and women in order to encourage them to keep in touch with home. Based on the work everyone did last week, I think we're up for it.


Paper scraps may be worse the fabric ones... they multiply, and we found it difficult to throw anything away! We'll have more to show sometime soon.
