Quilling with Whimsiquills
I am linking to another blog post I really want to share.
Pat gives me too much credit and she has been such a good mentor, confidant, business associate and friend. I think this is so sweet to read.
And her table decorations are fabulous. Pat doesn't use a tool- uses her fingers, so I am tickled she got wooden skewers and used this technique! She made some beautiful big huskings and gorgeous flower designs! If you agree, please take a minute to let her know.
Thanks for dropping by. I'll be back after a short time away and will visit you! :)

I posted a project in a Christmas in July chat party last week. I had no idea there was going to be a contest! YES I won, but I do believe I was the only one that posted a project :) Others offered ideas and recipes. I received a few suggestions for improvement and redid the card. Here it is!
This is a 5" x 6.5" corrugated card. I used a gold leafing pen around the edges of the cardstocks. I scored a 1/4" border around the red piece and added the gold cord bow. I embellished with a few glitter pens and a black glaze pen to write the word joy.
A simple idea for Christmas cards. I'm not sending this one, it is not centered. But then, imperfection adds character so who knows?
Thanks for looking!
