House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge-Love and Hearts!



We are so glad you are here and just in time for the First BLOG-HOP of 2012!! It's going to be such a treat because it's also the very first challenge in which all of our New Design Team Members are joining in the fun! :)

Our sweet teamie Christine chose the theme this time-Love and Hearts!



Heyyyyyy....where are the meeces???

 don't DELAY! :)
Oh here they are the little pranksters!





A red version on top and a tiny pink (it really is red rose pink) version on the bottom.

I made up a couple meece Valentine cards...I really want to send some out this year so I am trying to make doubles of everything I make.  I cut a pretty little silhouette file , added the meeces and then made a little embellished belly band to hold them closed! I love cards that come together so easily- and this one was a jif!


Check out the candy on some of the Teamies blogs that is up for grabs...( check each blog for their requirements). My requirement is just a simple comment and as usual, my followers who comment get a double chance-just let me know though!)

                                                                            Win me!!!
