Waltzing Mouse Blog Hop

HAPPY ST. PATRICK"S DAY!!!

I've been sitting in waiting rooms having test done for the past three days and am really behind with my card. I've been looking forward to this blog hop, but life has a way of messing up the best plans.
So, with only about an hour tho throw this card together, this is not one of my best creactions but it has to do.
I was in such a hurry to post that I forgot to add a Wee Bit of Stickles to me Shamrocks!

The image was a Freebie from Waltzing Mouse. So, I thought the perfect sketch to use would be this one from Midnight Madness.

The Designer paper is a combination of Close to my Heart and Basic Grey.
The stitching was done by hand with embroidery floss. I like the dimension of hand sewing and find it very relaxing.

To follow along, please jump into our very own Waltzingmouse House Forum and look for the threads in The Play Room for the March St. Pat's Day Blog HopI will try and fill in more important information on this post when I get back home. So, if you are looking for the sketch or links, please come back later.
