House Mouse #138

 
 
     Over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Blog, they have a challenge running right now, that is called I Love You "SEW" Much!  It is to include something to do with sewing, wether it be real or faux.

 
      I added some zig zag stitching around my image to frame things out.  My HM image is one that a dear friend stamped for me.  It is called Helping Hand.  The sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps.  I sponged a cloud background and then added cloud die cuts from Memory Box.  Coloring was done with Copic markers and SU inks..  For embellishments, I used twine, mauve pearls, and some Diamond Stickles

     Had a great weekend here.  Finally got to see my DD and her hubby.  My DS and his lovely wife even stopped on their way home from the Poconos.  Busy, busy, busy, with some frigid temps to boot.  Have an awesome week!
