A little unsteady


     Out of all the plans I had for 2017, starting it off being sick as a dog was NOT one of them.  Major head cold and chest congestion...coughing like something big and scary.  Not fun at all.  No desire to do anything so I've fallen behind in my visits.  So sorry all.
     Thought I'd share this card I made a while back using one of Art Impressions new Mini Shaker sets, Rock and Roll.
     It's been quite a while since I've been on a pair of skates so I imagine this is what I would look like too.  LOL  The upper part of her body is on an action wobble for some fun shaking action.

purse Y28, E43
skates C2, C4, C6

     Enjoy you're weekend.  Ours will be super cold.  Something us deep southerners do not enjoy at all.
     Blessings,
Tracy

Pop a wheelie


     This crazy guy from Art Impressions is popping a wheelie on his skateboard.  Brave fellow!  LOL  This set is one of the brand new Mini Shaker sets called Wheelie.  The upper part of his body is popped up on an action wobble for some shaky fun.  I used the included die for the word "zooom" and covered it with Glossy Accents.

Quilting


     Thought I'd give you a peek at what I have been doing lately.  Our ladies at church have started making quilts to give away as blessings.  I haven't made a quilt in a LONG time but it inspired me to do it again.
     I'd never made a rag quilt before but it was super easy and came together really fast.



     This one is going to my daughter, but I have several more I'd like to make for.


     Have a blessed day!
