House Mouse Challenge #24



For this challenge I made a birthday card for my sister, Beverly. I don't think she ever checks my blog but I may have to remove it from my blog later because I don't want her to see her card before her May birthday! Bev loves lime green! and she loves quilting! and loves House Mouse!! so I combined it all to make her a special card.

I sewed the fabric squares on my sewing machine. Each little square is just over 1/2" (she'll really understand how much I love her when she sees this teeny quilt!!). I ran the yellow strip of paper in the center through my "Happy Birthday" Cuttlebug embossing plate and I added some sparkle to the straight pins and thimbles with a glitter pen, though the sparkle doesn't show up. The sentiment is from The Angel Company.



Thank you for looking. : )
