have a mice day

Good morning Penny Black fans.

Thanks to everyone who joined in last weeks challenge, your creations were spookalicious!

This weeks challenge is.....

Zigzags/Triangles

You can interpret that in any way you choose, but for inspiration, you should see what my team mates came up with, have a peek here.

I got the buttons border punch a little while back but then needed to get the perfect stamp to complement it, these little mice fit the bill perfectly, don't you think? The papers are BoBunny and I watercoloured the stamped image. My 'challenge bit' is the machine stitched zigzags round all the edges.

So what's everyone in the UK going to do with their extra hour this weekend?

hi Liz
Gorgeous card, love the colours. These two are adorable and your watercolouring is fantastic. The buttons punch is fab and love the zig-zag stitching, I must have a go at that. Think I might do a bit more crafting with the extra hour. Hope you have a good weekend.

Great card :o) Love the sweet image and matching border, fab bright papers and your stitching - I really must dust off my sewing machine, it was one of those 'must haves' that I've never really got going with! Lisa x
