That stitched and paper pieced car is fabulous! It's very fun to see two cards from your less-feminine creative zone today.


Melissa Phillips, the QUEEN of paper piecing! I never would have thought to create a stitched car this way and it wasn't even on my radar...until I saw your blog post. Bravo! So adorable! :)

I like your road sign card, clever sentiment! Nice way to dress a gift box too!


Oh my goodness, love love love the road sign card! And the paper pieced car is ridiculously adorable! Love everything you do, but you rocked the masculine today!


How fab is the paper stitched car? Brilliant projects Melissa, all with your amazing creative flair :-)

Diana K

Both your projects are a total wow for me. Amazing colour scape!

Nancy Penir

Such a big fan of yours! Love every sweet and thoughtful idea. The gift box is wonderful! Perfect for a gift card, or two! love the sign tag, just tucked in so sweetly. And adore the road sign card! Masculine perfection everywhere today! Thank you for all the inspiration!

Leslie Scholes

Clever clever clever!!

I'm amazed at all the different ways you gals came up with to showcase cars, trucks and road signs. Your card is delightful, Melissa, but that paper-pieced, stitched-car, gift box is genius!


Hi Melis, these are adorable! Makes me wish my son was little again to make awesome birthday invitations. I love the blue stripes with the red stitching, so cute. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.


I was wondering how you would interpret the new releases because, as you said, not something I would associate with your normal style, but this IS a true Melissa project and absolutely fabulous. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Regina M Hamilton

Cool projects. I love the road sign card.


Yay, Melissa! You knocked this ball right out of the park! Love both your masculine projects done the way only you can do them.
