This is my version of the theme: "Quilting". This one is for a swap. I decided to make an actual quilt to glue onto the ATC (altered trading card). I have a queen sized quilt made from this fabric so I decided to use the left over pieces to make this ATC. I tried scanning it, but it kept moving around on the scanner. I then tried taking a picture with my camera but Emma was jumping up on me blurring most of the images. So I just gave up and went with the pictures I had taken. Hopefully this picture will give you the idea. The scissors are stamped with black ink and then outlined with Gelly Roll glitter pens. I cut out a spool and wound green thread around it.
It's a very cold day here in Virginia. We even had a bit of snow last night. If you look closely, you can still see some on the ground. So different from Ohio with our usual foot or more of snow. Because of the tiny amount of snow, it makes it more difficult to shovel your driveway and sidewalks. It just freezes and makes ice if you don't remove it. Last time it snowed, we left it thinking it would melt, but no, it froze and we had more snow on top of it which made it impossible to shovel. Now that I have learned the secret of shoveling in Virginia, we won't be the "only" house in the neighborhood that didn't shovel. But tomorrow, we are suppose to have lots of ice, freezing rain and snow. I'm so ready for the beach.
