I used a Stampin' Up stamp set called Quilt Quips. I think it turned out kind of cute and I hope that they will enjoy receiving them. My cards are really simple but I hope with practice that my skills will improve. This card is my part of the Gingersnap Creations button challenge. I am a button collector so this challenge was really fun for me.

I am also sending a picture of my granddaughter, Hayley, she is a senior in high school, and she is such a sweetheart. I don't get to spend enough time with her. I wish that we lived closer. I really miss spending time with Adam and his family.

I hope you all had a great day today.
.My friend and I had a great day today. We went to a cowboy poetry festival . It was so fun to listen to these talented people relate stories about the Old West. There were also a lot of great cowboy music to enjoy. My husband loved cowboy music. I guess we would all like to be cowgirls and cowboys. Tomorrow I think I will make a cowgirl card for my friend.

This is my interruption of the flying monkeys. First is Lola and then Lucie. The coats are made from felt and the hoods are made of black fur. I made the wings of felt with feathers . The tail is a wire armature covered with fur. I think they turned out so cute. I had so much fun figuring out how to make them.
As I was making the costumes Einstein was my model. He was absolutely mortified when I dressed him up, but I had to have a model . I hope that they all have fun trick-or-treating .
I will upload the pictures of my daughters family when she sends them to me. They live in Oregon. Hope you all have a spooky Halloween.

Victorian cards are so charming. I had these in my little stash. You might have guessed by now that my stash is not so small. Oh well, it is fun to collect silly things.
I wanted to use them in my home so that I could enjoy them everyday. I covered small canvases with satin then added the cards and embellished each picture with some of my collected dodads. I think they turned out especially cute. I used tiny bits of laces and frills.
I love how they look in my bathroom with all my other Victorian decorations. .
I love it when I get to use some of my odd charms. When you get going with the embellishments it is hard to stop so I just kept going. I used some of the buttons in my collection. My friends call me the froufrou queen because I love all of this stuff.

Second, I just finished my 50th baby quilt since April. Some are pieced and some are panels that have pieced borders. I have a longarm quilting machine and I am trying to learn how to use it. I am getting better at quilting. It has been fun creating 50 different quilts, but I am glad that I have finished them for now. I know that I will make more. Not sure what I am going to do with them yet. My grand kids will get some and I will probably donate some of them.
I hope you enjoy looking at my work. I loved making them. Enjoy and have a great day.

We used orange and green matting for the backround and the sentiment on the inside says " Just goofin' around" . So cute!
Have a great day and thanks for the encouraging comments.

As you know I am still pretty new to blogging so I will try this new post. I am hoping that my sis will be able to help me next week when she comes up for 3 days. I have a great desire to join the blogging world because it seems like it is great fun. I know that I need to dedicate time to the learning curve. I am really tech challenged so I hope that all of you longtime blogger will bear with me as I muddle through my learning process.
I had 2 family reunions this past weekend. It was so fun to be with family and catch up with their lives. We have a tradition to play games and I give silly prizes so I have some fun pics of my cousins. I will try to post them .
