A Mouse for Valentine Day

Happy weekend. After a gloriously beautiful and warm Friday, we have dreary damp drizzles for Sat and more of the same expected for Sunday. Still on the Valentine kick, and this one was mailed to the DD. She kept a white mouse while she was away at college. (not at home, I might add, although we did have hamsters, turtles, parakeets and a gerbil at one time or another. I drew the line at mice).


- the photo looks washed out, and background looks pale blue - it was gray. The glossy accents on the valentine balloon created a glare. Other than that, was pleased with this one. The actual card looked nice. Think this was a Whippersnapper or Stamping Bella image. It was easy to color.  There was some green tucked inside, so I hope it will bring a smile.

Ya'll have a good evening, and c'mon back when you have time. Always love to see each friendly name pop up in the mail to say I've had a visitor. God Bless and for any who are under the weather, prayers that you soon feel much better. Hugs

  1. Love the card and I bet your daughter was thrilled with it. The embossed background is gorgeous and it looks great the colour it shows on the photo (but it looks green to me lol) . Isn't it weird how some photos change the colours like that. Love glossy accents and it looks stunning on the balloon. Take care hun. C

  9. I love every little detail about this adorable card! Love that mouse image and how you colored it, but those cute banners and valentine sentiment panel keep my eyes going in different directions to take it all in! The background embossing is perfect too and you can never use too much glossy accents on a balloon, especially when it's heart-shaped! Super cute card!

  29. This might be this year’s cutest valentine’s card. This kind of blue-green color with red is a new favorite color combo of mine. Everything works so well together.
