House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

Time for some Monday House Mouse Love :)

Can you believe it's February 1st already! I've been havin' tons of fun making "love" themed cards over the last few weeks. You ever get on a roll like that? And since Valentines Day is just around the corner...well...YOU's time to break out all that "love & hugs & kisses" stuff!!!

House Mouse & Friends Challenge #62: Valentine
This weeks challenge is America's Idea. Make any project you want with a Valentine theme - just remember to use at least 1 House Mouse of Friends image. Click HERE for challenge details and Design Team inspiration. Have fun creating!!!

This House Mouse image is soooooo cute!!! I wish I could say this stamp lived at my house...but it's not mine. My friend Cynthia let me go crazy stamping a bunch of images from her personal HM stash! Thanks GF!!! She has a drawer full! Even Limited Edition images!!

Coloring done with Prismacolor Pencils & OMS. Sponged chalk ink around image layer. Punched out heart and added rhinestones. Card layout is from Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge #264.

Pucker up baby!!! LOL!

And CHECK IT OUT! Lori did the inside of the card this time :) Yep...I know...amazing ;)
