Happy Valentine's Day!

Hope everyone had a very nice Valentine's Day!

For the last 3 years the Valentine's card I have made for DH has had a mouse on it, so I had to continue the new tradition, but didn't have a new mouse stamp. Then I remembered the adorable mouse that was being made at Christmas time and decided I had to use him. So out came the punches. One of the samples I cased was done by Emmy, not sure if she was the original creator or if she cased it. I think he came out really cute as he yells out "Happy Valentine's Day!"

I have had several inquiries as to what punches were used for this little guy, so here is the list. Hope it helps.

Head - ornament punch (cut off neck of the ornament)

Ears - Butterfly punch

Mouth , arms/hands - small oval

Body - Wide oval

Feet - 3/4" circle

Teeth and Tail were cut free hand

I absolutely LOVE your mouse. That is adorable. I myself is very good friends with Sally Johnson. She lives 1 mile from me and we get together about 2 x a week to stamp. We are even going to NY next week to the convention. Should be a fun time.

This is great. I loved that little guy too but hadn't had a chance to play with it. Thanks for sharing. Great Job.

Just love love love the mouse.. Can hardly stand myself... It so adorable... By the way you are soooooo very welcome for the candles... To be a parent of two wonderful soilders must be so fulfilling... I can hardly wait for warmer weather so we can meet in person and stamp our hearts out...
