How About Some Lurve?

Good morning hope you had a wonderful weekend - they certainly fly by don't they?  I had a fabulous time with my two beautiful grandsons.  Sorry if I have not been round to see you but I just don't get a chance with them here so I am trying to catch up now!  A big welcome to my newest follower - and 400th - Anet.

Today sees the start of brand new challenge at Lexis Creations and the theme is Valentines/Love.  Here is my card:

I have used a cute House Mouse stamp from a set I have had for a while.  Just love those little meece - so cute!  I have coloured them with Copics and used Dienamics Stitched Rectangle Stax to cut the image out.  Papers are Papermania - Home for Christmas but I thought they were great for Valentines and especially for this image.  I have used Dienamics Blueprints 11, Memory Box Simple Needle and Thread, Lil Inker Heart, Spellbinders A2 Scallped Borders One and the sentiment is Elzybells stamped directly onto the linen cardstock.  Here is another view:

The sponsor is My Heart Pieces and the winner will receive three digis.  Please go over to Lexi's Creations and check out the rest of the DT.

House Mouse Challenge - HMFMC 162 Love
The Cutie Pie Challenge - My Cutie Valentine
Kaboodle Doodle - Valentine
Melonheadz - Valentine
The Crazy Challenge - Love is in the Air
A Gem of a Challenge - All You Need is Love
