Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

Hello.  How are you doing this week?  I have been super busy working behind the scenes on my upcoming projects.  Today though, I am sharing the card I made for this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday.  Tammy is our challenge hostess this week and she is challenging us to Create something inspired by country living.... a farm-theme, gardening, country patterns (gingham, plaid, calico), quilts, wildflowers... the possibilities are endless!


I was so inspired by Wanda's beautiful quilt cards found HERE.  I just had to make one.  Let me tell you...she made it look easy.  This baby took me 3 hours to make.  Those squares are are only 1x1 and then I had to hand cut them in half. OMW.   It was hard to get them all lined up properly.  I do love how it turned out though.  The sentiment is from Moments in Time, and the paper is the new Echo Park paper called This & That Grateful.

My MIL is a quilter and I figured I would send this to her.  I am a little late with her birthday card, but I hope she likes it.  It made me think of her when I saw it.



Here are the links to the rest of the design team for additional inspiration.
