~Shaker Box Filled With Quills~

Amanda read all your sweet birthday wishes...thank you so much bloggy friends!!!
Ya'll are the BEST! ;)

This past Sunday I was blessed with a bag of goodies from a sweet lady at church.

It had bags of quilling strips and a quilling TOOL!!!

I've toyed a bit with quilling...well, baby quilling.

But now, I'm legit!

I have a TOOL!!!

She said she wanted to give it to someone who would use it.

Oh YES...I WILL, I WILL!!! ;)

First thing to do is make a thank you card, of course! 

The shaker card technique I learned by watching Heather's tutorial at

I ended up using three layers of foam (quilled paper is a bit thicker than glitter).

My colors were drawn by Color Throwdown #176

Thanks for stopping by today! ;)
