House Mouse Challenge


Today is the cute HM Challenge and the theme was Paper Piecing! Yikes!! Never done it before, now the only stamp I have in order to do this was a small one with Mudpie so I had to paper piece his Jelly Belly Beans!! - No mean feat - they were so small - Ermmm!! not sure if you get blue ones with stripes and squares on LOL!!
Damn those pesky beans! Had to hunt for my teeny scissors!!
