House Mouse Challenge #23

This will be my first time for entering one of my cards in the House Mouse challenge. I have tried hard to decide if I should submit this card. I will just say it isn't may best effort LOL but as many challenges it took me longer than any other card I have made this year!

This challenge was ..... challenging for me as I do not own a Valentine related HM stamp. I created this card using an image I received from my good friend, Jenny. I love the image!! and the card actually looks pretty good in real life but the camera.... oh well for what it is worth here it is! : ) no more excuses! heeheehee

I wanted to create a masculine-ish card because I will give it to my darling for Valentines Day. I used Stampin' up papers for the solid card stock and a little scrap of an unknown company for the printed paper. I stamped conversation hearts all over the brown and pink paper - though the picture doesn't show them. I also embossed the printed strip of paper with the "Heart Blocks" Cuttlebug embossing folder. The satin ribbon is by "American Crafts" and the resin flower is by "All my Memories". I colored just a couple of the hearts with a blush colored pencil and I colored our furry friends with chalk. The "I Love You!" sentiment is by The Angel Company. Thank you for looking and please come back I promise I'll do better next time! : )

I think it's darling! I'm glad you entered the challenge this week. They can be addicting. BTW - I don't have very many HM stamps either. I do have a lovely friend named Susan who stamps them for me so there's nothing wrong with that.
