About my friend, Nan…  I’ve spoken of this incredibly talented lady before.  (A link to her blog “Pots and Pins” is on my sidebar, too.)  She has written books (and had them published!).  She is a celebrated chef (and has been on TV “Emeril Live”!).  And she quilts.. the most beautiful quilts.

Well not long ago, I became the recipient of one of Nan’s quilts.  Really!?!  Pinch me!!  How do you thank someone for such a gift.. one that has taken so much of their time and talent to create?

Well, of course, to begin with one must make such a gift giver a card.  (Bet you didn’t see that one coming.  hehe)  SU!’s “Quilt Quips” was the perfect stamp set for it.

I kept trying to make Nan a pink rosey sort of card to compliment the quilt.  But it wasn’t working.   Then Pink Paislee’s “Queen Bee” designer paper jumped out at me.  Was it the name or just the beautiful patterns and colors.  Either way, I think they were both perfect for Nan.  She is the Queen Bee when it comes to quilts!

I used an Inchie for the quilt block image.  Love those Inchies.  They give such a sturdy element to pop up and add dimension and interest to a card.

The inside of the card and the envelope got a little love as well.

Thank you again and again, Nan.  This beautiful creation warms my body and my soul.
