What a sweet trio of meece! This is a sweet card and I love the coloring!! I really like how you highlighted "heart" in the sentiment!
The other day when my grandsons were here we were discussing what critters we disliked and I said that I would rather have mice and rats than snakes and spiders. Joseph, the oldest, was surprised. I then told him about the House Mouse stamps and had to show him the collection. He has now asked for them for Christmas so he can make stuff with them! He is quite the artist and I am going to make his wish come true!! Don't we all need a little bit of Mice Love in our lives? LOL
TFS!
