Old friends...

Recently I signed up for Facebook and have found a long lost friend of mine from college. I never thought I needed to sign up, but it is really cool how you can connect with people that you've lost touch with! She just had a baby boy....her first, so I've been working on a little something for her...
I used some denim fabrics, lights and darks, from old jeans of ours and a lot of different blue cotton fabrics, stars and stripes and plaids. So much fun. I hope she likes it. I need to make time for more quilting, because I love it so!
And the next challenge over at Card-a-licious will be up soon! The challenge this week was to create a Friends card with ribbon and the color green. The card challenges really stretch my creativity!
I created a little purse card with an arrow handle with the ribbon. The green paper is by Cosmo Cricket - Girl Friday and the orange paper is Dream Street - Heartsong. I used a button by American Crafts "Flair" and a Melissa Frances rub on.

Well, I hope you are having a sweet day! My girls are playing Rock Band and having fun together. It's feeling like a lazy day today. Hugs,

Danielle-
I found some of your designs on scrapbook.com and thus discovered your blog. I just have to say that I think you have amazing talent! I don't know how you have the time to do all of these projects. I too am a mother of 2 girls and really enjoy scrapping and sewing...I used to have a bag business...but time was a big issue when baby number 2 came along. Anyway, I don't know you persoanlly, but just wanted to tell you that your talent is...well...WOW!
