Challenge #64 - Anything BUT a card

Thank you to everyone who joined in last week, please see the post below to find out who won the fabulous prize.

I would like to take this opportunity to say goodbye to Pat who has decided to leave the team due to other commitments. Thank you for being part of the DT your work is truely inpirational and we wish you all the best for the future. x

Our challenge this week is Curt's idea :

~Anything BUT a card~

Please remember to use at least one HOUSE MOUSE & FRIENDS image on your project.

This week's sponsor is.....


My name is Angela and I own Sew Many Cards. I have a husband, an almost 10year old daughter, a two year old son, and a dog/puppy: Hershey. The images of Sew Many Cards came from a dream that my husband had of a group of animals that were "SEWN Together" with patches and stitching, hence the name, which he also came up with. You will find that every image in the Sew Many Cards collection has patches and stitching, even the ones that are not animals. I love to draw and almost every image is either an inspiration from my family or a request from my great customers and design team, so please ask if you need something specific or would like to request something be made. You can contact me at


Check out what our lovely DT have come up with to help inspire you. Don't forget to check out their blogs for more details!!





Please leave us a comment with a link to your card. If you do not have a blog please feel free to link to a forum gallery or an online photo hosting site such as flikr/photobucket etc.
