quilty kindness...

I’ll try and make the story behind this card short...
Hubby and I went on a road trip yesterday to the Finger Lakes area of New York.
Hubby went to a train shop and I found a quilt shop down the street.
I knew I would be a while so I checked out everything they had, purchased some fabric and taped with the owner about making a replacement potato microwave bag for a friend.
She told me I shouldn’t use batting with seeds in it.
She suggested what they sold, but I didn’t need a crib size.
As I was finished and leaving she called me over to the counter and GAVE me a piece of batting she had as excess.
It works perfectly.
This card will be for Val at...

Now the card is a linen white card stock.
Using a Heidi Swapp stencil and Crayola pencils I colored it to look like a quilt.
The verse is stamped with StazOn jet black ink using a stamp from Jillian Vance’s “Sew Special”.
