It’s time to play with The Paper Players! This week I am hosting a theme challenge: Crazy About Critters! All you need to do is feature an animal on your project. Remember (says the retired science teacher) an animal doesn’t have to be warm and fuzzy!
I hope you enjoy my “mouse adorned” Valentine card. They are a sweet little couple, don’t you think?

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
These cutie-patootie mice were inked in Basic Gray, but their fur is Smoky Slate. They are sharing a Lovely Lipstick heart, which is from the Meant to Be stamp set. Although I used a die to cut out our furry couple, I snipped away the extra grass at their feet.
They are perched on a Whisper White Stitched heart, die cut using a framelit from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits collection. The lacy white heart was die cut at the same time. I can’t wait to use these framelits again.
Of course, I think the it’s the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder which steals the show. I absolutely LOVE this folder!
