Crazy 4 Thoughts of You

Hello friends!
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are enjoying your weekend!

Today ends my time as guest designer for
Crazy 4 Challenges
The new challenge for you today is a simple theme of "Thinking of You", but the twist to this one is that you must also send it out to someone.  I don't think that will be hard for me to do! :)

So here's the card that I came up with for this challenge:
I just love the feeling of warmth that this card evokes.  It really reminds me of my grandma who made a quilt for me.  I remember the feel of the fabric and all of the stitching sewn with love! :)  Just like using left over pieces of fabric in quilting, I enjoyed using some left over pieces of scraps of design paper that I have so heavily accumulated!  This is about as close to quilting that I will probably ever get!   LOL!  Everything I've used on this card is from Stampin' Up!  The name of the stamp set I used is called "Loving Thoughts".
I found this fun tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and used this idea for my creation.

Here are a couple of other challenges that I'd like to enter this one for:
Crafty Cardmakers - Clean and Simple
Crafting From the Heart - anything goes

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today!  Now please do hop on over to the Crazy 4 Challenges blog to find out what the talented design team has to inspire you with!  Can't wait to see what you come with for this one!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

HUGS & SMILES
