Hey Santa...

Now that I have finally updated my stamp collection :), I was having a hard time with the challenge at Stamp Something. How could I choose a favorite stamp? Looking at my new pretties, my old pretties, I finally chose the one that was the inkiest, and most used and loved, in my collection. My favorite stamps are my vintage Santa stamps, and this one is one of my all time favorites!

I made this card following the sketch on Card Patterns. I loved this sketch! I am a fan of "quilt blocking" on my scrapbook pages, and this card was right up my alley. My image size, and the size squares I wanted to use made me decide to make a huge 7x7 card. It is ginormous, but I think it has some real "ooohhhh" to it.

Is Michigan considered local? It could be. I arrive in Detroit on Friday night at 9:00 and will be spending all day Saturday at Birch Run Outlets and Sunday afternoon... the Tigers game!

I can see why this stamp is your favorite. What a classic image. Love your homespun style card, too. The stitching is wonderful.

Gosh, how lucky can I be to have stumbled upon your blog?! Really fantastic work - I love how you used patterned paper underneath the patterned square blocks. Even your blog header is beautiful! :)

Thanks so much for playing along with the Card Patterns sketch this week! I'm thrilled to be the sponsor and just posted my own card for the sketch on my blog although its nothing compared to yours! :)

Really pretty! I love anything quilts, so I like how you incorporated the quilt pattern. I really like that stamp also. I think I'll have to come back and look at more of your creations when I have a little time. Thanks for sharing!
