Hoping you're on the mend...

Edit: You can find inexpensive felt at craft stores, Wal Mart, Michael's, etc. Nicer felts and wools can be found at your finer quilting shops. It can get pricey but I am in love with felted wools.....oh the fun projects I've seen with those.

Get well cards are always in demand during this season so today I have some pretty sewing themed get well cards to show you. My quilting friends at the quilt shop have enjoyed seeing all my sewing themed cards so I thought I would add a few more to my stash.

For my cards, I used Papertrey's Quilter's Sampler stamp set along with some vintage looking background papers from K & Company (I think). Main images were all stamped on Vintage Cream Cardstock. Did you see that PTI now has matching Vintage Cream ribbon? I got out some felt and played around with some heart shapes too. For the spools of thread, I embossed them with Gold Embossing Powder and then colored them in with Copic markers. The main images were cut and embossed with Spellbinder's dies for both cards. The sentiments were also embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.

I finally got a new seeing machine. A cute little Baby Lock machine called Audrey. I hope Audrey and I get to play together this week before my quilting class. My last two classes have been postponed so I don't have any progress to show you. Hopefully Friday I'll get to have class.

Stay tuned for more samples to come. I'm going to lock myself in my stamp room and get some projects knocked out even if I have to stay up til dawn! Boy, time flies when you have kids going in opposite directions and a ballgame or other event every night. Have a great day everyone!!

You're breaking my heart! Your creations exude such old time sweetness that I feel the need to catch my breath. I've added the link to this stamp set to my DH's list of gift suggestions he requested (for me). Your DP and felt hearts are marvelous too.

Ok - now for the really dumb question. Where would I go about finding felt? I know - I'm such an amateur. Kids!
