Thank You Very Much!!

 OK so I am one of the worst procrastinators!! I took my niece down south on the March break to look at Universities. Along the way we stayed with some of my Mom's friends who were nice enough to let us bunk with them. I wanted to make them Thank You cards because I thought they deserved ones made with love (: Well here we are, over 3 months later and I just finished one of the cards I was supposed to make ): I've had the images coloured for about a month even!!!
 Anyway, for this card I used the Mojo Monday sketch for this week, and added stitching so I could enter it in the Basic Grey challenge too!! I tried out my new Sew Easy but I'm sorry it wasn't so easy for me!!! If anyone has any pointers for being successful with it please pass them on!!! I ended up using my Tim Holtz ruler and paper piercer this time! The adorable little mouse is a Whipper Snapper stamp and the bt is Basic Grey's Sweet Threads (I love it!!). I also used MME twine, CTMH sentiment (inside), cs and ink, dollar store bling, a LOTV stamp, spellbinder and SU punch. I coloured the image in with my copics.

17/24 cards complete
