A Mousie Kind of Love

     I adore House Mouse stamps but have very few which work as Valentine images.  This one, however, brings back childhood memories of candy hearts with words on them and how we looked forward to the Valentine card exchange in our classrooms.  :-D  Do kids even do that any more?


I pulled color and hearts inspiration from 
this photo at Passion for ProMarkers.


Colored with ProMarkers
Cut with QuicKutz rectangle die
CAS design
Card front is embossed with "Linen" folder
Hand tied bow with sequin

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Love this image, and the card you created with it. Yes they still do exchange valentines here at least, My daughter is a Kindergarten teacher and they even make a mail box for each child from a shoe box for them to go into. I remember how much fun that was too. Thanks for sharing your card with us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.

Hugs

Gotta love a House Mouse, Connie! Fab CAS design and that sweetie reminds me too of giving out Love Heart sweeties to friends as a kid - you were always careful as to who got which message!
Thanks for playing along with my challenge this week at Passion for Promarkers! Lisa x
