House Mouse and Gruffies Valentine

     It turns out I'm going to have additional Grandkids and Great-Grands in town over Valentine's weekend so I'm cranking up the card making to have cards enough for everyone.  This darling image from House Mouse/Gruffies is perfect for my first Great-Grand.


     I colored with my ProMarkers and die cut the image with a die from Spellbinders.  All the "Love" sentiments were die cut with the most recent set I purchased a couple of weeks ago but this is the first time I've used anything from the set (Sizzix/Tim Holtz.)  I also used a new embossing folder to emboss the roses onto the cranberry red CS.  The heart buttons and brads seemed like perfect little embellies for this rather 'busy' card.

I've always adored this HM image and you did such a great job with it. Love those embossed roses on your background and all the die cut love. Someone will know they are special. So glad to know that you are having your grandkids and great-grandkids over this weekend. Enjoy your time with them.
