Thin Blue Line Quilt for Gabriel



This is the quilt I made for my son-in-law Gabriel.  He recently has left the police force to work in another field.  I had been working on it forever.  Doing the star-field greatly intimidated me.  I finally finished it ten o'clock on Christmas Eve.  Most quilts I have seen use a fabric pre-printed with stars.  I decided to sew each individual star on.  My husband, Tom, designed the quilt and made a perfect star-field layout for me to trace so each star would have a perfect placement.  We plan on working on quilts together after his retirement.  He will do the designing and I will do the sewing.


This is the tag on the back. 
It was ordered from Etsy.

Christmas Eve

 I saw someone color this image on Kit and Clowder.  I fell in love with it.  Someone wrote and asked her about the image.  She said it was a Sugar Nellie, but that the shop had closed.  I have a file for Sugar Nellie so I checked it and sure enough I had the image.  I have so many digital images I no longer have any idea of what I have.

I colored the image with Copic markers.  I have never colored a background before.  The one I saw had the sky done in dark blue.  I couldn't resist.  My coloring was far from perfect on this, but I'm happy with it.


Copics:  It's quite a list!

Gnome Couple


I found these images at DigiPqperArt on Etsy.  I thought they were adorable. No coloring necessary.  All I did was surrounded the images with gray Copic markers to add some depth. 
 The papers are digital.  Well on my way getting next year's cards done.

Holly Doggies and Golden Angel

Holly Doggies


I used this cute image on a Christmas card for my niece.  She absolutely is a dog fanatic. The image is from Eureka.  It is available as a digital.  I somehow have it in rubber.  I don't know why I would have paid for a rubber stamp when it's available as a digi, but I guess I did!  The image is colored with Copics.  The paper is from my stash.


Golden Angel


This card is for my dearest friend.  She collects angels so this is perfect for her.  She doesn't see my blog so I figured I could post it here.  The die is from Creative Expressions.  I have had it for several years, but this is the first time I've used it.  It was not easy to cut.  I had to keep layering extra cardstock along with my metal shim because it kept leaving certain areas uncut.  I finally got it done, though.  The paper is from Stampin' Up.

Lights In A Tangle


First Christmas card for 2020!  I used this adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Little Elf Tippi.  I fell in love with this image when I first saw it.  I used miniature lights from Etsy to surround the image.  I borrowed the idea from Pat Frank, Little Elf Tippi.  The paper is from October Afternoon.
