Sweet Embroidery with the PB Mice.....

Hello everyone: I love little critter stamps, especially when they are this adorable. 
This is an image from a Penny Black stamp called Stitch in Time and, as you can see, this little mice are as cute as can be.

I stamped the image on Strathmore watercolor paper with gray Stazon ink, I wanted softer lines to be able to color using SU markers and my Prismacolor pencils and have an image that looked like I did the "no line coloring" technique, I don't know if I achieved this but I still like the way it turned out.
The sentiment is from an old, retired Flourishes set called "Smore Fun", I punched the three corners with a Martha Stewart punch.
The bow is made with a piece of twine from my stash.

I've been finishing the inside of my cards since January of this year, it saves me a lot of time when I mail my cards and they look nicely finished.

The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "Dahlias", the little critter is from Penny Black.

I would like to play with the following challenges.

Tic Tac Toe Board created by featured designer Amy Ottmers.
I chose the first horizontal row: "Sentiment/Fall Colors/Twine.

Hugs from Maria.

Cuteness! Cuteness overload! Ack! The little Martha punch was brilliant since it's reminiscent of a delicate doily handmade by Grandma or...a house mouse! Ha!
