Homemade by Penny Black

100_5626100_5628


Hope this brightens your Friday!! These cuties are from Penny Black's transparent set "Homemade". I have paper pieced the mice, added diecuts from PB's new creative die sets "leaves", "tag it" and "speech bubbles". Love the dimension that die cuts add. I channeled my inner Jill Foster for the colors: distress inks lemonade and spicy marmalade applied directly to the tag. I stitched the tag to the dotted note card. I added glitter glue to the dots in the lemonade (wondering if it's just lemonade!)


This is the second attempt to publish this post! Blogger is having a tantrum. If paragraphs don't show up, I apologize. Last time I tried to fix that, Blogger wiped everything out! Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by. We are off to Atlanta to watch the grandson play baseball and to hang out with the almost-teenaged granddaughter.

This is a brilliant card! I would never have thought to sew a tag on but the look is so effective. Plus, I love those little mice!

very cute Judy. Those mice are the sweetest ever.... I'm sure there's a touch of something stronger in their glass....
