Love of House Mouse

Anyone who knows me well knows that I'm a huge fan of House Mouse.  I have two cards to share today.  This first one was inspired by the challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.  This month's inspiration was "anything goes", with the optional theme of "love".

I'm always going to pick love, because love wins.  It should always win.   And how about me using Christmas paper from a Simon Says Stamp card kit to make a card about love!  This was from the Milk and Cookie Doodlebug line.  Love this paper. 

And always love the mouse!

And a second card I will share was created with StampNation as my inspiration.  StampNation is my online community of craftiness.  This month they are doing a birthday celebration, and the challenge there was to create a birthday card for a woman.

This card also has a watercolor background piece that was created using Ken Oliver Color Burst.  

I hope you find some time to create!
