Quilled Flowers on a Tag Card

Hello everyone!  I have been absent from both my craft room and my blog lately.  I have been so busy with work and other things going on, that I just couldn't get motivated, nor had the inspiration to create...  so, so sad.  But last night, I broke the cycle!  I spent a good couple of hours in my craft room, cleaning up, putting things away (where they belong and not just pushed to the side - we all do it)!  So wonderful to have everything in it's place, right?  That sparked my imagination in itself!  I have been practicing my quilling techniques for some time now....  I would cut several strips of paper and then sit with my hubby as we are watching on our favorite programs on TV, and I would play around with shapes and sizes.  Well, I was at Joann's on Saturday night and found a quilling kit of papers and a little pamphlet on techniques, with lots of detailed pictures.  So, I bought it!  :o)  I came home and immidietly opened it up and checked out the book and was amazed at what I saw!  Shapes I had never tried, patterns I never thought about!  And this is what I made! 

I made this, while I was trying to come up with a sympathy card for a young lady I am very fond of. I figured that in this situation a sad sympathy card is not what she needs, but more of a "thinking of you."  I wanted it to be girly and joyful looking to perhaps cheer her up, or bring a smile to her face.  She lost her boyfriend of about a year in a tragic car accident. 

The tag is cut from Sentimentals, and then I added my own quilling, as well as ribbons to keep the tags together to form a card.  I hope she likes it and knows that I am thinking of her and keeping her in my thoughts and prayers. 

Thank you for looking and I promise to get back on my game of being creative!  :o)

  2. Such a wonderful tag. I have been dabbling in quilling too, but have not yet gotten it down yet, it is much harder than it looks, lol. You have done a FANTASTIC job on it!
