I FINALLY figured out that 1) this is supposed to be clean (at least in the card design, not so much my craft domain) and simple, and 2) it's supposed to be fun. Right? Laughed all the time I was trying to tidy up and then cranked out the right card, the one Denise linked. I also uploaded the results from my panicky stamping. Lesson learned.

Here's the quilt scrap card. (I started with a scrap of fabric from my prom dress--totally antique!--but it's embossed peau de soie and ravels like crazy.)

And here's a pic of Jodi and me. We're the crib quilt queens. We finished at least 12 quilts and 4 fleece throws to donate to our high school's nursery.

Brenda, I'm glad you learned the most important lesson...it doesn't have to be perfect, just have fun! Your cards are wonderful! Your quilts are fabulous too!
