Get Well Quilt Blocks.....

Hello everyone: I love quilts but I've never made one, I've seen them on craft shows and on Pinterest and I admire the amazing and intricate designs on all of this wonderfully beautiful works of art.
I have a card to share with you today for the "Less is More" WEEKS 255 and 256 challenge with a theme of "HOMESPUN" and the "Ruby's Rainbow" challenge #119  with a theme of "Get Well", here is my card.
I had this set for a very long time, unfortunately I don't know where it came from, where I got it or the name of it and I apologize for that.  In my defense, back when I started buying stamp sets, the thought of having a blog was never on my mind so I neglected to save names and companies from a bunch of sets.
Anyway, this set comes with 12 different quilt block stamps, a pair of scissors, the spool and threaded needle plus several really sweet sentiments, the one on this card is one of them.
As always, I stamped this images onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored them with my SU markers. The sentiment is stamped with Wild Wasabi ink.
Here is a picture of the inside. I feel so good that I'm sticking to the promise I made to myself about finishing the inside of all my cards before posting them on my blog.
The sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Perfectly Penned", I just love the font on all of them.

Here are the banners that inspired this card.

I want to thank you for stopping by today, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Oh Chrissie, no apology is necessary, this is a very busy time of the year for all of us. Here at the Rodriguez household, we have parties throughout the Holidays and it's busy but I just love having family over, love my house full of all the people I love most.
I love participating at the "Less is More" challenges, I'm looking forward to do the same in 2016.
Wishing you and your family a Joyful and Healthy New Year.
