MC Jan/17 - Easel Quill - ECD Celebrate - The Earth Laughs - HB

I seem to be in a slump creatively speaking. Can't seem to stay concentrated on creating... I'd be reading my book and then spend 10 minutes here or there to add stuff to a card... I hope this passes soon and I get back to spending all day creating... But even still I'm very happy with the results.

Love the brown cardstock I used from ( "Flavours Gourmet Cardstock - Moroccan Cocoa"). All the quilled elements are from my 2016 stash done with the gals at quilling sessions. The weaving is another way to use your scraps.

I'm using an A Way With Words die from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Celebrate" also available on Quietfire Design HERE

And I'm using a quote and sentiment stamps from Quietfire Design ("The Earth Laughs In Flowers" 2pce set); ("Twirl and Enjoy" 3pce set); ("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7pce set) 

Click on any card image to see all the details and descriptions etc. Enjoy

I'm off to a slow start in 2017, too, working in bits and pieces. I'm allowing other things to take priority, but sometimes that's necessary. Also, the reading... must be this weather... can't seem to put down a good book. Anyway... you managed to finish this one up beautifully with the embossed weaving and all those gorgeous quilled flowers. Colorful and pretty. Love how you added the bird on the magnolia branch. Enjoy your days, however you spend them, Yogi!
