I was asked to make a "C" for a couples first anniversary. The customer asked for some pine trees because they enjoyed camping. Because of where they lived, I wanted to make it special for them. Where you ask? Wyoming... So I decided to incorporate the mountains and a river, too. I first outlined the letter C and then proceeded to fill it in with the background paper. After I put that into place, I put in the outline and started filling in the trees and the river.

I have mentioned that I have been working on quilled initials and I have one that has proven to be very popular. Everyone loves going to the beach and listening to the sound of the waves crashing. It can be so relaxing. The sky always appears to look different during the various times of day, so I've had request for different beach scenes.
Here is the one view...
Here is a second version...
And lastly, here is another version...

I had a special request to make a quilled initial all in gold and creams. I wanted it to be glamorous yet classic. I found beautiful card stock in shades of gold. Some glittery, some shimmering, and some in a pearlescent quality with lots of different textures. I used my Cricut to cut out the lettering for the 50th and the date.

I was able to play around with my new Cricut and made some birthday invitations for a beach themed party. I love the way the sand and the surfboard turned out. I also love the double layered text! It made for a nice effect.
