Sewing House Mouse

Hi Crafters,
I've got something a little bit different this time! I covered an old notebook so that I could keep handy sewing patterns in one place and I'll always know where to find them (in theory anyway)!!
I used a House Mouse stamp from a Joanna Sheen set, coloured it in with my promarkers and used my favourite Maja design papers.  I added a couple of cotton reels made from a Memory Box die and some buttons in colours to match the pink and green theme.  I also wrapped co-ordinating thread on to the cotton reels and I stitched round all the papers with my sewing machine to continue with the stitching theme!! I then found some matching ribbons and wrapped them round the spiral binder.
I'd like to enter this in the Joanna Sheen Challenge which is 'Pretty in Pink'.
Hope you like my little creation and thanks for looking,
Karen xx

Sending Happy Thoughts

Hi crafters,
I made this Birthday card for my niece, Jess, and used one of the gorgeous Saturated Canary images.  I coloured it in with my promarkers and added some stickles here and there!!  The papers are from Maja Design and I stamped a 'Lili of the Valley' stamp for the text.  The flowers are from WOC and I found some heart pins to match the colour scheme perfectly!  I added some pearls to my butterflies but I must have taken the photo before I they were added lol!
I'd like to enter this card in the 'Anything Goes' challenge on the Saturated Canary challenge blog.
Thanks for looking and I hope you like my card!
Hugs, Karen xxx
