A Card and a Quilt!!

I have had time to make a card for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge before it gets busy for Easter!!  The challenge this week is "Come Rain or Shine".  I have made this birthday card using the Hero Arts Clouds stamp and some dies, it was quite a quick card to make but I am pleased with the effect.

I have also been busy making my first baby cot quilt for my cousins daughter who is expecting her first baby in April,  it took me a long time to choose the colours I wanted.  I knew I wanted bright fun colours but didn't want to stick to blue or pink!  After choosing the elephant fabric as my base it was easier to find what I wanted.

This is only my second attempt at a quilt, the first was made with scraps so not so critical!!

I am pleased with how it turned out and Rachel was thrilled with it!!

I hope you all have a good Easter break , it looks as though its going to be raining most of the time here, typical holiday weather lol.

Oh, Sally, what a lovely card and a simply gorgeous quilt! I used to be a quilter and still have a huge stash of cotton fabrics and 'fat quarters'. I loved quilting but became a bit obsessed and sat up into the small hours to try and get a project finished on time. Jo x
