Quilting with Paper during the Storms

What do you do when it storms?  
I do not run my quilting machine or my sewing machine.  
I do not iron.
I do not blog.

I quilt with paper!

I am not a scrapbooker, but I bought a bunch of cool scrapbook/greeting card stock from a friend who was destashing her supply of cardstock. It looks like fabric to me!  Everything looks like fabric or a quilt to me.

 Some of the pieces, I cut a little smaller than the card and I adhere it with double stick tape.

Some I cut into squares and rectangles.  Three pieces make a nice balance, but four can work too.

I sign my name and the year on the back of the cards with a fine point sharpie marker.

At the end of the storm, I packaged them up and mailed them to my Mom.  She loves when I make greeting cards and share them with her.  She especially loves the ones I stitch fabric pieces unto the card stock.  I recently created a tutorial for making the fabric stitched greeting cards and shared it on Craftsy.com.  Here is the link to my Craftsy Store.

Also when the storm is over, I am back to quilting.
