My first Valentine card.....

I will still make some more winter cards though, because I love snowmen. They make me smile!

These little guys make me smile too! The grey mouse would have to be me and the brown one my dh because he always eats the candy he plans to give me :) These little guys are so much fun to color too. I used prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits on this one and then I went over the sayings on the conversation hearts with Spica red glitter pen.

The House Mouse stamp is called Lovin' Mousefull - how cute is that?
I have a Bazzill red background then a layer of Imaginisce Loves Me - Words Can't Express dp which will be on the 2RedBananas website very shortly. I matted the image with Bazzill Bling and doodled around the edges. The hearts on the left are all out of Bazzill Bling and embossed with cuttlebug embossing folders then cut out. And the ribbon is May Arts.

I love Valentine's Day stuff :)

Wow - awesome coloring! I love that paper. Ya....I'm usually the one that eats the candy, so I guess I'd have to be the brown mouse! :)

Hugs, Jami
