I made this baby boy quilt for a vendor of mine in New Jersey who's giving it to his new baby nephew in New York. I've made his new daughter a quilt last year and he liked it so much that he bought 2 quilts from me. It always make me feel good when someone likes your work that much. Thanks JD. I used 100% cotton fabrics and I created the back of the quilt using what was left over from the top of the quilt...it's kind of my own signature.

This is another card I made for the biker swap. I had this old stamp I bought back in San Diego years ago and I thought this would be perfect for the swap. I also had some Harley Davison ribbon so I figured I would make a blue jean type card because after all blue jeans and Harley's are a great mix.
Stamps:Unknown (Stamp Diego)
Accessories:Blue jean Harley Davison ribbon, mini silver brads, silver blings, 3D dots & circles, BIC It markers, CB diamonds in the rough folder
Paper:Navy blue brazill cs, creamy caramel cs, silver dp and blue jean dp
I signed up for a biker swap on splitcoaststampers and this will be one of the cards that I'll be sending. A sweet lady on SCS asked me to be in the swap and she sent me some images of the snoopy chopper and seen my other snoopy biker card. This will be a fun swap to see different images of motorcycles and what the ladies come up with for a design.

It was a gorgeous day for a trip to the pumpkin patch. The girls had fun searching for pumpkins. I finally got a picture of all us together thanks to Erin's teacher that was with us. The girls wore their princess outfits and enjoyed being in them as well. Happy Harvest everyone!

I thought this card would be cute for my sister's son who will be 8yrs old this week. I think this image would work great for a man card as well. I like using the Harley Davidson colors. I think the next card I make with this image, I'll try to do watercoloring so that way the colors could blend. TFL!
