New Friends

Hello mousie lovers!  My card today is a throw back from the "olden days" of my stamping years.  In the beginning of my stamping days, I only had these little single meece stamps and I would put them in all types of scenario's-they were at my mercy!  I belonged to a Yahoo House Mouse group and that was sort of standard practice with us all. I stumbled across a card the other day made by Dorothy Spier-she was the master of getting the most out of her single stamp meecies-bless her heart. Dorthy has since passed away and I cherish each of her creations!

 I decided when I saw this fun Valentine Cut file from the Silhouette Store, it would be perfect to slip in a few meece! I did enlarge the card so I could invite a few more critters to the party! (The finished size is 4.25 x 6)

 Here is just a small pile of my individual house mouse stamps.  You could use meece cut out of scenes as well----if you are needing just a  mouse or two!

I had my Scan N Cut2  cut out the meece...quick and simple, although there were a few casualities in the cutting of the meece-a couple lost tails and..can you find the poor mousie that lost a part of his ear?  Normally I would just rescan the images to have them cut right, but because I knew they would be tucked in under the hearts I just went with it! 

I am sharing with the following challenges:
