I forgot to mention how much I enjoyed looking at the picture of Niagara Falls. I wouldn't have wanted to be that cold for that freeze though. Florida girls can't take it. [Bunny]

Loving your darling HM creation, Sue, with the elegance of foiled hearts, and the dearness of the lover’s note. I just bought that image and hope to use it shortly. The list of things I love about you cracked me up, gotta love the HM artist, and crafters like you who bring the stories to life with your beautiful artwork. XXOO

LOVIN' the Red Foiled Heart Doily to accent this gorgeous Valentine Mousey Make! Beautiful rich coloring and fab paper (I know what you mean about not wanting to cut into those lovely designer papers we card-makers tend buy to keep on hand to look at but never cut! LOL)... The flowers on heart's edge are beautifully placed to showcase this Mousey adorable image. Fab little finishing bow too! Great job Teamie!

Denise Bryant said...

Love the layering! Sweet card!
