Harley Davidson Tshirt quilt for Brother's 60th Bday

Using the excess Harley shirts my brother Jimmy had sent for his grandson Hunter's Harley quilt I made in 2010 - I had just enough to create a tshirt quilt for his 60th Birthday - he had tshirts dating back to the late 70's - I think he really enjoyed me returning his tshirts in a different format - Happy 60th birthday Jimmy.

OWH Sketch #121 challenge

Finally got motivated to start cards again, it was a very busy March and April.

using this week's sketch decided to go through scraps (Sandy's scrap organize video encouraged me to clean up my scraps so many were already cut to size) - hoping to clear out more scraps with same sketch.

OWH - created a card from This week's sketch #114

Finally found time to make a sketch card -
materials used
SU paper, brads and stamps, my new pinwheel die

used my sizzix die to create the card holder for the inside of Mallory's birthday card

Other cards i have been working on as well - Mallory and her dog Kitt share the same birthday so i created a card just for them

For a Friend's 6 year old son's birthday i created a name book using my Cricut - the words i choose to highlight are words beginning with each letter from his name - Caden.
Cool, Awesome, Dapper, Exciting, Nice (naughty)

Jack and I put together an awards shadow box for Colonel Michael Greer, who just retired after 30 years in the Marines.
The US flag was flown over the US Centcom headquartes building at MacDill AFB, where he retired from (he was Jack's boss for the last 7 years)
With the help of Elissa (she made the HUS embroidery files) for the red banners and I used my machine to create the red banners for the campaigns he participated in.

Other cards I included in my last box to OWH.
Used more SU stamps, DCWV Latte paper stack, SU ribbon
