Love from a Mouse

Yesterday, I shared an elegant Valentine, and today I''m showing a whimsical card for our 13 year old.  Her personality is different from that of her older sister, and I always try to match their style to the cards I create for each of them.


This card features an older Stampin' Up! set: Happy Heart Day (the mouse image), and the 'feb 14' is from the A Happy Heart set.  I tied in the sage green and peach stripes to the sentiment by using markers and an 'xoxo' stamp (Inspired By Stamping) multiple times on a small circle tag.


In 2009, I gave each of our girls a Valentine that featured the same mouse:


Man, what a difference!

An old stamp set revisited and it looks great! The card from 2009 is also adorable. You became a cardmaker with a wonderful talent for adding an elegant touch on every card. Even with a modern twist like this. I love it :)
