Friday I felt completely under the gun… kinda like this cartoon I saw on fb that my friend Joyce shared:
That is right… in the midst of this quilt I had last minute panic because my sweet niece Delaney is turning 3 in just 3 days and I had yet to make her anything! Yikes!!! Here is Delaney with her daddy (my brother! lol) and also with her princess doll! Cutie pie!!! Okay… now to get creative!
And creativity came to the rescue… I had an idea and surfed the net to no avail and finally just starting playing with some new stamps I have… before I knew it her birthday present was complete! Love it when God takes over and completes something I think is impossible! lol Check it out!
All this is leftovers from Valentines and stuff I had in my stash… except the Sourpatch Kids 🙂
You can see the dimension better from the side… and each side is just covered in some washi and some glitz glitter gel.
On the back I found a cute cake with 3 candles… just perfect for my 3 year old niece!!!
I loved the silver heart and tied it on with some string my friend Pam left me… from our Valentine’s crafting day.
Can you see how the silver heart on the front is popped up in this pic.???
Hope she loves it and I hope it inspires you to try to create something every day… even when you aren’t in the mood. I am entering this in Paper Playtime’s Anything Goes challenge here.
Now I am off to continue creating on a quilt! Here is my progress so far … I am working on a border to go around the quilt block top… but all the blocks are now sewn together YAY!!!
Can you tell it is a Manly Quilt??? lol I think my son will LOVE it now that it is all together…
Next up will be a pic of the quilt top being sandwiched after I piece the border and sew it on… lots still ahead. Are you working on something that is outside your usual baliwick too?? I would love to hear about it!
Thanks for spending a little time with me today! I hope it has been inspiring for you 🙂
