Lets Make Beautiful Memories Together!!

When I saw the current Muse Challenge
Tracey McNeely made this inspiration card
and what arrived in the mail this week
the die that makes this wonderful heart design.

I took my inspiration from the heart and made a stencil out of die cutting some masking
tape and blended with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. 

I loved the little heart in pink with gold dots but I decided to use this sweet
little mouse from Purple Onion Stamps who is holding a heart. After colouring
him with Copics I added Glossy Accents to the heart to give it
some dimension. I attached the mouse with some dimensional foam

Found the sentiment I wanted to use and stamped in Grey so it was softer and
went better with the soft blended heart. It looks like a halo around the little mouse.
So cute. 

Challenges :

New Die cut used to make the stencil,
new Mouse & Heart stamp (NBUS actually)
and a sentiment that hasn't been used before. Maybe even a trifle
naughty depending on how its said hmmmm.

Think I have hit the twist here.

Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
