"Aw" is DEFINITELY right! LOL you took the words right out of my mouth... and long before I even arrived at your blog! How'd you DO that? LOL Sue, darling little sleeping HM, but it is the pussy willows that caught my attention!

Well that is the perfect card for this challenge. I love pussy willows and to see a mouse attached to them ---that is nothing better than that. LOL Very pretty card, Sue. Have a good week with the nice weather. We may get a lot of rain next Sunday because of the hurricane but not too bad. We could use the rain but not the winds.
