Day 19 - "Q"

It's another hard one today... the letter "Q".
I decided to use up some scraps of Christmas paper to created a quilted background for my card. It was either that, or quickly acquire some quilling skills!


YOUR TURN: Create a card using the letter "Q" as your prompt.

Yep, I went for quilting, too, Beccy! Your list for "Q" is a lot longer than I managed. :-D

Love this card the image is so cute and did wonder what you would do for q brilliant q suggestions

I must admit, I very briefly considered teaching myself how to quill. And you do have a digi with ink and a quill, or any of the feathers in the feather set could be used as a quill to write Santa a letter. I also considered adding some Christmas decorations to Nell's quaint little cottage. Your group of snowmen that spell JOLLY would make a fine quintuplet, too. What a quintessential challenge you have given us. It's really quite a lot of fun. Okay. I'll quit now. Hugs, Debi

Great idea for Q Cute card!

Swissie said...

In Norwegian we pronounce the word "Cow" like we pronounce "Q". So perhaps I should make a Cow Christmas card. ;)

Yes, I was considering quilt but then couldn't figure out how to do it. I was having one of those Duh moments. I may decide to do another Q card if I have time - I really like the quilt you made with your scraps! And now I remember all of the previous quilt cards you made with your scraps and I'm slapping my head asking myself why I didn't think of it sooner! I went with Q for quick so there might be a Q re-do now that I've seen your gorgoeous quilt! Thanks for inspiring, Beccy!

A beautiful quilted card. I wondered what you would come up with for q. This is such a fun way of making Christmas cards, although time does not permit me to make a card for each letter.

ike said...

Oh, that is just perfect :-) xx

Jackie Trinder said...

Oh wow Beccy this is a stunning card I love the quilt you have created with all the beautiful papers. That reindeer is so cute but he does look a bit bemused maybe too much sherry. Take care. Hugs Jackie

pst said...

That background would make a great quilt, too bad that it's only paper...Great card.

terrie said...

Well done for the letter Q and your card turned out fantastic...
thanks for the idea

Oh gee! With my Internet being down I just realized that I hadn't commented yet on your lovely card!What a wonderful way to use up scraps of paper. Love your little quilt. It reminds me of my husband's grandma. She used to whip up quilts and they were just gorgeous. Of course she was a seamstress by trade. He talked about how he would stay overnight at his grandmother's house and in the morning she'd have a new outfit for him to wear. She would sew it overnight. Made with love, just like your card!
