Have a mice day

Good afternoon and a big wave hello to my new followers. Great to have you here!

When I first started making cards I watercoloured every image. Now I have pencils and pens to play with I had sort of forgotten my watercolours. So for this creation I decided to get out the paintbrush and get watercolouring. It really is the most relaxing way to colour!


The image is, of course, a Penny Black called 'mice day' and I teamed it up with papers from the Kaisercraft 'homemade collection'. I added little buttons to the centre of the wooden flowers and machine stitched all the edges.

I am entering three challenges....

Papertake....buttons, bows, bling or blooms
ABC...happy birthday
Allsorts...needles and pins

See you tomorrow for TeddyBo Tuesday. And I'll also be announcing the winner of that free Teddy image!
