Curtain Call: Cozy Quilt with Lil' Inkers

This is my second post today. My easy peasy
lemon squeezy card is just a short scroll away!

There is still time to play along with the current challenge at Curtain Call.


Isn't this fabulous inspiration for the cold weather?  (Sorry for those of you on the other side of the world posting pictures of your thermometers at 122°!)

Our sponsor for this challenge is Lil' Inker Designs.  Please know that you do not have to use Lil' Inkers products to enter this challenge.  You can enter with anything and you stand a chance to win some Lil' Inkers products.  But I do get the thrill of using their products on this card!

I have my fair share of Lil' Inkers products but very little that works for the quilt challenge.  I actually ordered more last week and it was scheduled to get here yesterday.  The post office link still shows that it was supposed to be here yesterday - but it also shows that the product is sitting in New Hampshire.  Bummer. So I had to improvise, which is not my strong suit.  I found a sentiment in the Cutie Cat set which talks about "warm" thoughts.  It also talked about "fuzzy" thoughts and that wasn't quite what I wanted - but I added some felt to work with the fuzzy. Then I used Lil' Inkers star dies to hopefully add a night-time look.  I love the star dies because they adds stitching on the inside and outside of the cut - check out my window star and the fact that the stitching is around the outside!

Warm and Fuzzy
