'It's My Birthday and I Quill If I Want To' Blog Hop

We are celebrating Linda's birthday with a blog hop! Thanks Linda for inviting me to join in the fun. If you came here from Debbie's blog you are in the right place. If not, then you can start out at the beginning by going to Linda's blog. I'm certain you won't want to miss a single stop.

Well onto my card. I do not know how to quill and was running out of time to learn before the hop (LOL). In the end I cheated and used some quilled stickers that my sweet Mommy had given me quite a while back. I think they are a really fun design. I also used Emma's beautiful Polka Dot SURPRISE stamps for the sentiment. This card is definitely a different style than normal for me, but I like to try new things and I'm really liking the end result. I hope you like it too.


For blog candy Linda (My Quilling Nest) is giving away one stamp set of choice from My Creative Time. Each stop will choose a random winner from their blog comments and then each of those names will go in for a chance at the stamp set. The random winner from my post will get their name in the final drawing but they will also get a small prize from me. The hop ends tonight (February 15th, 2011) so make sure to get your comment in tonight. For my candy you do not have to follow my blog but if you would like to I would LOVE it. I am giving away a sheet of Provo Craft quilled stickers (donated by my Mom), a small sampling of baker's twine from The Twinery and 5 Action Wobbles (pictured below - sorry about the glare it was the best picture I could get). Also don't forget that Linda is having a quick Ustream and some extra prizes at 10:00 PM EST (9 Central, 8 MTN, 7 Pacific).


***Your next stop on the hop is the very talented Leanne.***

  8. You quill too?!!
    I want to try it, but just haven't-- yet. Do you have to be real concerned with the quilling getting crushed once it's on the card? It seems like it would be so delicate. Very pretty card.

    It looks like I missed a fun blog hop! Always so busy!

    But I love your card (even if you didn't quill the embellishments yourself!);) I would really like to learn how to quill...now just to find the time.

    Crafty hugs,
