Treehouse August Card contest

Hi to you all from Troy, Michigan! I am blogging from my hotel room here...Happy Sunday! Crossing the Canadian-US border on Saturday was brutal! Two and half hour of waiting just  to cross the border! I hope I will have some nice retail therapy tomorrow to make up for this! 

I just want to share a card that I made for  Treehouse Card August Contest  (details here).This cute mouse image is FREE to download. I used the floss and added some hand-stitching. It seems to add some interest. Hope you have fun coloring!
For those of you who comment on my blog so very frequently, I thank you for the visit!
Ps: This card was mailed to Sarah M as she is one of the best people that I know :)
You're the best!

Hi Virginia! LOVE this DARLING CARD! Sarah is going to, also. So nice of you to think of her......I share your feelings, too......she is SO SWEET! Hope you had a nice day shopping at Archiver's and maybe you even got over to Hobby Lobby? It was great to see you again.
