Happy World Cardmaking Day ~ 2017!

How fun to have a day to celebrate card making!
I am sooo grateful to be able to make cards with you all
and share the beauty and passion of this craft ~
and consider you all some of my sweetest, most treasured friends ♥

So my card today!
It was ONE OF THOSE SATURDAYS so I had to quickly shift gears ..
and improvise!
Which is good.

Since it's World Card Making Day ...
not World Stamping Day! :)
(for the record ... I do have a card coming, it's mostly done,
and SUPER adorable!  
Stay tuned!)

For the Crafters of Faith group on Splitcoaststampers,
our hostess Susan P. gave us this scripture and challenge:

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. ~Ephesians 2:10 NIV
this is the verse I would like to highlight with Oct card ---- so anything with a quilt, tapestry, artwork of sorts.

I went with the 'artwork of sorts.' 
I don't have any fancy die cuts to create a quilt
and sold off all my quilting/sewing related stamps,
so this is what I came up with .... faux stain glass
with a bold sentiment to mimic a quilted pattern!

Before I show you the card,
I have to give a shout out to my FAVORITE quilter - my daughter!
She's only 22 but the girl can quilt with the best of them!
She's self taught and is an absolute natural!
This one is one she made for me!
I love, love, LOVE it so much!
She knows I how much I'm drawn to bright, vivid colors 
and she and her boyfriend picked out the perfect fabrics! ♥ 
Thank you, baby!

This 2nd quilt she made for her boyfriend's family ↓

Isn't she amazing AND talented!
I think so :)
Finally, here's my card!
It sort of mimics the quilt she made for me ♥

I hope Susan doesn't mind too much that I skirted a little close
to the challenge boundaries!

But I do like my card :)
What did you make today for WCMD?

Thank you for being one of my reasons for being happy,
crafty friends!

Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
