Seems I'm not quite done with sewing, having finished the quilt.  There are a couple of challenges looking for stitching or thread.  I inked a card panel with SU inks, the new type seem really juicy and work well.  Hello Honey, Peach Passion, Flirty Flamingo. Dapper Denim.  Lightly sketched a bare tree and stitched it on my sewing machine.  Added a bit of Distress Ink to the trunk where the background showed through and then I grounded it.  SU sentiment and an extension of the ground line were added to the panel.

And here is the lovely Evee enjoying her quilt :)
