Lots of Love

Did everyone have a lovely Easter? We had a full house here and a brilliant time - AND we get to do it all again this weekend! I have a lovely 'English Tea' planned for Friday and a big family BBQ for hubby's birthday on Saturday  - Sunday can be spent nursing the hangover!!! :D)


It's my first time inking up these little mice - aren't they just adorable? I coloured them with Copics and added a little glitter to the flowers.
I found some embroidery thread the same colour as my background card, so I used it to stitch along the edge.

Hmmm... I have just noticed a little grey smudge. It's not on the card - I think it's on the inside of the camera lens, so hubby's first job tonight will be to take it apart and clean it!!   :-)


Challenges
Less is More - Off Centre.   I tried to balance the stamp being on the bottom left, by adding the sentiment to the top right. I hope it works!
Simon Says - Anything Goes and 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop
CES - Spring Colours/Images - I think the green and lemon are a pretty, spring combination.


Stamp - from the House Mouse Love, Sunflower set.
Sentiment - Wild Rose Studio, Everyday Greetings
