The Cuddle Kind of Love

     Today is a good day for cuddling at my house.  The weather is chilly, my fur babies think I should be curled up in bed so that they can pile on top of me or crawl under the covers and plaster themselves against my back for warmth.  They didn't think much of my taking time to sit at the craft table and make this Valentine salute to love in the rarest of forms.  :-D

     The stamp is from House Mouse.  HM images always make me smile and this one is no exception.  I apologize that the image isn't spectacularly clear but I stamped it with Light Coffee ink so that the design would look almost as though it had no outlines but I think my coloring just didn't give enough definition.  None-the-less, I submit this for your enjoyment.

Coloring w/ ProMarkers and chalks
Die cut green CS is a snippet cut with Sue Wilson die
Burlap fabric pieces are left over scraps
Mulberry paper flower, 'dyed' with ProMarkers
Sentiment printed and cut w/ Avery Elle die

My cats felt the same way this morning and didn't appreciate that it was still a work day. Your coloring is wonderful on your beautiful card. Love the burlap.
