Supersize Me - Blog Giveaway

Reality check: What was I thinking? All that extra craft room stuff was never going to fit in an A5 bag!! My blog giveaway has now been supersized to a box big enough to fit 12 x12 paper and cardstock. As well there will be ink pads, stamps, and embellishments. To enter just make a comment on my previous post here. I'll give you some sneak peaks of the box as I fill it: the draw is by random org next Wednesday.

Here is another card from the recent shoebox swap: without any collusion we had all picked Valentine/love themed cards. This pretty card designed by Rachel Roberts again uses Love Defined, this time with Rose Red and Early Espresso.

Should be able to get to the craft table for some papercraft by tonight: in the meantime I have finished the binding on another quilt. This one has a funny history: all those little half triangle squares (only 1" finished) were leftovers  from another quilt. Such a wasteful technique: I couldn't bear to throw them away, so they were carefully hoarded. I only had the patience to use them the summer two of my boys had chicken pox. We were social pariahs over New Year, and all that at-home time gave me the focus to make this design.

LOL re you having to pack a box now -I think I will have the same problem when I finally get around to cleaning out my room.
Love the quilts, one positive from having sick kiddies.
