Taking Things One Day at a Time

I have thoroughly enjoyed playing around
with my set of Ippity stamps that I got
from Saavy (that's MY name for her, anyway).

I have participated in the blog challenge over
at the Ippity blog & SCS forum for this week
and here is my little contribution...

The challenge was to use fabric or canvas.

This was THE PERFECT TIME to pull out
my little quilting sample squares that I ordered
from Keepsake Quilting YEARS ago.
(so I've also met my own BOO challenge)

I stamped the sentiment on different calico squares
then layered the additional squares to mimic the
beginnings of a CrAzY quilt, right down to the
slight black border.

I took the fluttering butterflies, which is
one image, stamped it at the top left
and bottom right as well as repeatedly
on a variety of decorative paper scraps.
I then cut them out individually and
POPPED them up for some dimension.
WELL....I hope you will start spreading the word
to our mutual friends who visit me her at
The Open Window because tomorrow is a
great day for me.

It will be my....
and we are gonna celebrate together!
Of course, there will be a 
RiDiCuLoUs GooD
so make sure you make plans to come back
around tomorrow!

This is such a fun card, Julie! My mom quilts, so I've got lots of little patches of fabric lying around. I love how you've stamped the sentiment on fabric, too - so creative! I need to dig out my quilting-themed stamps and have a go!
