BBTB2.Sweethearts/Nest/Blog Hop

The winner of the School Themed Quiltie is: StephanieD2. Stephanie, Please email me quickly so I can mail the quiltie to you. Thanks for playing along, and to each of you who visited and left your name, I truly appreciate your visits.

It's Monday and it's month end...and I am always so excited to post my challenge card, and in the mix toss in some blog candy. Perhaps you started at the beginning of our challenge at BBTB2, perhaps you are visiting from my design team sister and so so talented Donna and her blog. I am glad you are here. All of us at BBTB2 are just so appreciative of our followers, and those who visit us on a regular basis or now and then.

This week the talented Jeri is our hostess and she asked us to design from Sweetheart cartridge and to use the Bless This Nest cut. This is a really wonderful cartridge and so much to choose from. I had fun making this little card and it's most made up of papers just laying around.
I embossed the sentiment, the nest and some of the mounts. There are 3 metal charms that say HOME, HEART and ABODE. I added a little blue flower because any smart blue bird would build a nest near the pretty blossoms.


Now, since this is a blog candy kinda day, I am once again digging around in my sewing projects and I am offering up a little 27-1/2 x 20-1/2 wall hanging or quiltie that is sewn in red and green fabrics and the embroidery work is of a school theme. There is a sweet teddy bear holding a pencil, two sets of books, and a tote.

Perhaps this would make a sweet little quilt for a favored teddy bear friend, or even make a nice wall hanging in some classroom. If you want to be in the draw for this quiltie, please leave your comment and on June 4 I will put your name in the draw. The winner will be announced at the very top of this post. If you see your name, please email me quickly. If I do not hear from the winner by June 8, I will select another name. Thanks so much for visiting me and now in the tradition of the blog hop, please hop over to the oh so talented Marina to enjoy her challenge.

Jeri said...

Hi Carole--I just love the cuts you added behind your bird nest. It really sets it off. It's funny how many of the dt went with birds that were blue, did you notice? I love how you added the red with yours. I think I've only used that color combo with one card. Thanks for the inspiration. Beautiful quilt for one lucky winner.
Hugs, Jeri
