A Whole Lot of Merry!


Happy Saturday! This will be a very quick post as we're heading out soon to go over to friends to play euchre and watch NCAA basketball.  They have three boys and coupled with our four boys it's the perfect match up of kids!

This is another card for the Pattern Play class.  The class had a video on how to make quilted looked cards using 1" strips of patterned paper.  I immediately thought Christmas.  Very quick to make (just my style!)

ETA: I'm submitting this for a new to me challenge!  Festive Friday where the challenge is to submit a card based on the trigger word of merry.  I think this fits well!


I hope you are having a great weekend!

  1. Is it wrong to be thinking how much I'd love to curl up in a warm quilt like that right now when it's March?!
    Great use of the patterned paper! I just treated myself to another 6x6 pad today - I couldn't resist! I need to get signed up to that class over my easter break... and get help! LOL!
    Hugs!
