If you Give A Mouse Conversation Hearts

If you give a mouse conversation hearts he'll make a balanced conversation out of them! "Be mine, love you! XO"

My card for today was made for the Stampendous October 2017 catalog release. I just love this mouse lounging in a pile of heart candy. I'm not sure that it would be comfortable to lay on those bumpy candies, but this mouse doesn't mind at all!

This mouse Balancing Hearts might seem like the main theme of my card, and well it certainly was planned that way but there's another major product I loved using too. Check out the heart vine border filled with colorful hearts! This die comes in the Spring Border Die Set also from the October 2017 release.

Here's how I made this sweet little card.

It's what I do! I'm a maker who receives goodies for design team work, but I wouldn't do it if I didn't already like the products I receive so comments I make are what I mean and not just because I received them to make my project. To see a list of these companies just scroll to the bottom of my blog under FTC Declaration.
