Monika Love:

Good morning friends.  I hope the week has been treating you all well.  I have been busy between work, pets, appointments...  I am really looking forward to the weekend!

Today I am sharing a House Mouse card with you.  Unfortunately, I only have one House Mouse stamp right now, so you may be seeing this lil lady more than once ;)  Also, this is my first time coloring an ink stamped image, I was a little nervous as I thought the ink might run, but it didn't LOL.

And did you know that Valentine's is right around the corner and I own practically nothing with hearts??  Apparently hearts don't interest me :S  But look closely, the gems are little hearts.

So with all that babbling here is my card, featuring Monika Dozes.  And when in doubt throw flowers on your card :)
Card Ingredients:  House-Mouse Monika stamp;  CraftSmart Back, Gold, and Chocolate Brown inks;  Copics (E000, E00, E13, E33, R81, R83, R85, R9, N01);  BasicGrey Little Black Dress papers;  Labels 4 Nesties;  Kaiser Crafts and My Mind's Eye brads;  recycled flowers;  Recollections heart gems.  Tools:  sewing machine,  edge distresser.

I made Monika for the following challenges:  House-Mouse Challenge - Love blog hop with more than 1 heart;  Charisma Cardz - vintage;  BasicGrey - favorite things (flowers, distressing);   Simon Says - animal antics;  ICSketches - sketch #149:


Have a wonderful day - thanks for the visit!

Great minds think alike Deanne!!! when I saw this fortnight's House Mouse challenge I realised I had not stamps that fitted and no hearts!!!. Managed to get a valentine HM set from EBAY for just £6 so was very happy. I have found some heart gems too and a heart punch so they will do. Gorgeous card and your colouring is fab. Hugs Clare xxx
