House Mouse ,,,, Alterations Sew and Go !! :-)

Hi all :-) I am back from the UK after a week visiting family and friends :-) It was dad’s 80th birthday and Mum’s 70ish birthday and we had a lovely family get together :-)

I managed to do a little bit of shopping and got me a smart phone and a tablet !! I decided to take the plunge and join you all in the 20th century,, better late than never eh :-) I do have a question tho ,,, can someone please tell me how to answer my phone ,, its a Samsung Galaxy, I have had a few calls and have to call them back cos I can’t answer it ,,, lol :-) 

It's the week of LOVE as we celebrate Valentine's Day on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge ,,,

It's our lovely teamie, Dorte’s  turn to host this challenge and she has chosen;

(Incorporate stitching; real or faux, or use an image featuring sewing)

We have 3 fabulous sponsors this week !! :-)

The lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp will be giving a lucky winner a fab $25 voucher to the store



One Lucky Winner will receive a fab $10 Gift Certificate to H M STAMPS online shop



One Lucky Winner will receive a fab $10 Voucher to Di's Digi Downloads online Shop

WOW !! Fabulous prizes eh !! :-)

For my card I used this very cute House Mouse ‘Alterations Sew and Go’ image and made an easel card :-)


I coloured with copics and used a  Viva Stone Grey Paper Pen on the pin heads, a white gel pen on the purple fabric and dotted star dust stickles here and there :-) The papers are My Mind’s Eye from a Happy Go Lucky pack. That FAB ribbon and the buttons are from a new release from Crafty Ribbons, they have a new range around sewing and knitting ,, see them HERE :-) I made the cotton reel on the Silhouette Cameo Machine, wrapped with embroidery floss and stuck a pin in it to finish :-)


Close Up :-)

Hi Lorraine
A lovely easel card. A lovely image and great added detail.
Me and hubby both got a Samsung Galaxy Ace phone each for christmas. It was a week before our daughter showed us how to answer it as we couldn't figure it out either. You have to swipe across the screen (left to right I think).
They should make it easier lol.
