Have a Mice Day

My lovely friend Tara sent me this gorgeous image quite a while ago and ever since I've had the idea of wrapping embroidery thread around the spool to see what it was like. So.... I got lots of different colours of thread lately to try various things with and made this one first.
I've actually used the sketch from "Clare's Weekly Challenge" on Docrafts as it's a while since I've done it and combined it with
Allsorts....brown and pink
A Spoonful of Sugar...lots of layering
Creative Card Crew...Punch it!
Papertake...pretty pink

I've used silver glitter gel pen for the needles and thimble but it's not showing up too well in the photo.


  1. Gorgeous card Claire - love that image and the way you ahve done the thread, and fantastic punch-work. Thanks for joining in the CCC Challenge this time.
