SCS Love Fest Day 4 + House Mouse Challenge Reminder :-)


Hi all :-) I made this Mid Week Reminder for the ‘ I Love you SEW Much’ challenge over on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge and combined it with the Day 4 of the Love Fest Event over on the Splitcoast Stampers Website

 Day 4 is hosted by Score-Pal and are asking for Flip Flap or Oodles of Folds :-)

I used this very cute Happy Hopper image called ‘A Stitch In Time’  and thought it would be perfect for making a little box to keep my embroidery threads in ,,, not that I embroider ,, don’t misunderstandy :-)


I have had this very thick, strong card for eons and thought it would be fab for making a strong box and then I made an easel style card to pop on the top.  I coloured the image with Copics and added star dust stickles here and there. The papers are from the Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit 
( Did I tell you how much I LOVE these kits !! It’s like having a birthday every month when the postie arrives !! :-))


I cut a little bit of Cottage Red Felt using a Sizzix Hexagon die and stitched the edges of this, and all the papers on my machine. I finished with some White Hemptique Twine, a button and a Jillibean Soup Card Sentiment Sticker, I printed the text on my Silhouette Cameo.


Thanks for looking :-) Some of the DT have also joined in with this mid week reminder so hop on over and see what they made too ! :-)

sshh ,, but Simon Says Stamp will be hosting a challenge over on the SCS site VERY SOON !!!! :-) We would LOVE to see you over there so please pop over and have a look see :-)

I have a fab Sizzix candy at the top of my blog if you would like to have a peek :-)
