Love you sew much

Hi everyone, I hope you're all well. I'm here to share a card I've made to enter a challenge, for a change...I seem to only post DT pieces nowadays. I really must start making more time for crafting 'just because...'

I love House Mouse but up until Christmas I only had my project book, which I've used for this project. My best buddy Sue bought me a couple of stamp sets for Christmas and I managed to buy some Christmas ones reduced a couple of weeks ago. I spent Wednesday evening mounting them all on Cling-Too and am looking forward to making some Christmas cards soon, you can never start too early. Anyway, here's my card...

I decided to make a Mother's Day card as it won't be long now and I have 3 mums (my own, my husband's and my late husband's). This is for my mum. When I was a child she used to make me skirts and also dancing costumes. I used a Stampin Up stamp to make the cotton reels, paper pieced with white card coloured with copics and added a scissor charm. Here's a closer look...

  The sentiment is computer generated and cut out using a  Spellbinders Framed Tags One die (another of my new ones)...

My mum always reads the verses in cards so I've added one inside which I got from my Crafters Companion Toread cd...
As I mentioned earlier I'm entering this for the current House Mouse Challenge - I love you sew much.

Thanks for visiting. I hope to see you again soon.
