House Mouse & Friends Challenge

Hiya everyone,

Today I'm sharing with you my House Mouse and Friends "I love you sew much" creation.  I made this ages ago for one of my Joanna Sheen samples but have not blogged about it till now.  Joanna Sheen actually loved this so much she said she was going to keep it for herself.

I decided to use this as it fitted the theme exactly but I was so swamped last week when the challenge started that I didn't get chance to post it.  I decided to keep it for the midway reminder post instead.

As you can see it is a small sewing box.  In reality it is a Ted Baker sock box that I have covered and altered.  The image is from the "sew happy" Joanna Sheen stamp set that is available here.I have coloured the image with my promarkers and the papers are from the Cosmo Cricket set "Material girl".

The sewing kit inside is just a cheapie one from the pound shop but it was just for effect really.  I like to try and create something a bit more special every now and again when I have a little bit of extra time but those times are now very few and far between with 2 wee ones!

Here are my 2 little monster playing in their playroom yesterday!

I am so blessed to have 2 beautiful children - they really are my world. I am looking forward to the nicer weather so we'll be able to go out and about again.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:-
