Through the eye of a needle ...

Having recently said that I've been turning my attention to bigger projects, I've found my card-making back in the spotlight this week following a flurry of special orders!

This latest card was an interesting challenge: a joint 80th birthday card for a couple whose birthdays fall very close together, who belong to a camera club, and whose main interests are photography and needlework respectively!

Well, there's a combination! I've come up with this card, which features the digital image of a film strip to frame the number 80 and some quilling.  In the blue box, for the husband, is my less than perfect attempt to quill an old-fashioned camera using vortex coils ... and in the pink box, for the wife, I've created a couple of needles (with looped-over 'eyes') out of silver quilling strips, which I've managed to 'thread' with a couple of 1.5mm strip coils.

You know me - I like a challenge!  But I'm beginning to wonder what I'm going to be asked to come up with next!


  1. Quite a card! I always admit you make things after a deep thinking and I admire you for that! I like the symbols you used and I hope they will love it as much as I do!
