Three Amigas Challenge

The Three Amigas are at it again.
Joanne's challenge was to make an Easter treat holder and tag.  I actually made two, but didn't do the tag.  The bunnies are made with various Stampin' Up! punches.  The square holder is from the square scallop die and the "carrot" holder is the biggest scallop circle die.  I didn't put treats in them because it's too close to bathing suit season and I have no will power. 

My challenge was to make a quilt card.  They're lots of fun and a great way to use scraps of designer paper.  I discovered that my paper quilting is as lame as my fabric quilting.  My fabric corners never meet, nor do my paper ones.  Oh well.  It was fun anyway, and I'll be doing more of these.  I debated whether to add embellishments and/or a sentiment, but decided to let the quilt stand on its own.

Julie's challenge was: something old (a product that's been around for a while but that we haven't used recently), something new (something that we have but haven't used yet), with bonus points for something borrowed (an idea, sketch, etc) and something blue.  I've had the Lovely Letters alphabet set for a couple years and my intent was to make monogram cards.  My something new was the Vintage Flower Adornment. You can figure out the blue. 
 If you haven't visited the other Amiga's blogs, go do it right now.   You won't be disappointed!

Wonderful projects, Sharon! This is so much fun! I really enjoyed your quilt challenge. What a great way to use up DP (except that it doesn't take much) and I love the many possibilities with the many patterns. Cool beans!

These are all wonderful projects. And I think your "quilting" is great.
