Love You More

     Happy Friday -- that wonderful, glorious day which ushers in the weekend!  It also heralds a new challenge at QKR Stampede and this week our theme is "Hearts."  Obviously, that gave me a chance to do another Valentine card using Digi 24266, "Love You Mouse."


I started the card design by using
the sketch from The Sweetest Thing.


     I colored the image with my ProMarkers and fussy cut the mouse.  In the original image, he has a shadow mouse on the right hand side but I cut it off and used just the mouse.  The heart shapes are all cut with dies from Spellbinders, except the actual white sentiment piece which is cut by hand.  The papers are from Authentique and BoBunny, new papers for me and I absolutely love them!

    The mouse is raised from the plaid heart on dimensional dots, though that doesn't really show very well in the photograph.  The little gems in the middle of the smallest hearts were in my stash for who-knows-how-long!

     What a great day.  The massive storm has subsided in the northeast, it's foggy and quiet here in my neck of the woods, the cats are all curled up together keeping each other warm, and it's a perfect day for crafting!  Enjoy and I hope we'll see you playing at QKR Stampede this week.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
