Happy 2011 everyone! Hope there aren't too many sore heads out there today. I was tucked up in bed by 11.00 last night, but was woken again by the fireworks which went on for over an hour - obviously the financial crisis hasn't hit the pyrotechnics industry just yet!
My last card of 2010 featured a mouse and here we are with the first card of 2011 with more mice for you! PENNY BLACK AT ALLSORTS January Challenge is All You Need Is Love and I think these little critters are certainly performing a labour of love with their stitching ........
I've used A Stitch In Time by Penny Black and painted with distress inks. I've kept the layout of the card very simple as I think the image is enough without embellishments for this one.
The fabulous rich coloured papers are from Papermania's Persimmon collection. I used my new pokey tool to make the stitch holes around the edge of the image panel and a Marvy le Plume pen for the green faux running stitch.
Thanks for popping by, hope to see you again soon.
