Sew Mice

I had been neglecting my HM stamps for awhile, decided to use them more. This stamp is really sweet, it's from a set by Joanna Sheen called Mice and Crafty sew mice. I've coloured with promarkers. The papers where a magazine free gict and are by Lilly Bimble. The cotton reel and sentiment where the free gift stamps in cardmaking and papercraft last month. I've added some cotton twill to the cotton reel stamped image and pushed a pearl headed pin through and added 3  fancy metal brads from my stash. I've used my sewing machine again to stitch the edges.

challenges entered :

house mouse and friends : I love you sew much
everybody art : metal
party time Tuesday : 3 and 3 ( I used 3 fancy brads, 3 patterned papers and there are 3 critters in the image )

very cold here still, I've woken up really achy around my back and shoulders , hope I'm not coming down with something. Quiet week I think after our socialising. Rose liked her pressies and we all had a good time at the pub.

enjoy your day. janex
