Good morning everyone!  I have the day off today so I wanted
to play with a fun embossing folder that I have and create
a card with a new stamp from Penny Black..

Sometimes... something catches your eye (heart folder) and then the
creative juices start to flow and that is how I got started today!

To make this card I embossed a piece of white cardstock with
this beautiful Spellbinders m-bossing folder called Hearts EL-008.
The design is so pretty and is perfect to use for lots of
different projects for Valentines next week!  I also used Penny Blacks
new stamp "Long Stem Cuties" on the Grand Decorative Ovals One
smallest die #1 and my favorite Versafine black ink with a little
bit of clear embossing powder to pop it up.  The papers I 
used are from Doodlebug and the tiny pearls I made with 
a pearl pen in cream. For the little mice I just used my chalks
and shaded them with matching colored pencils and a little
bit of marker.  Sometimes I like using chalk because 
it is easy to blend and looks more subtle.
 And lastly for the tag I added the xoxo in black.
(The finished card is 5x5 just so you have an idea for size)

Here is a close up of the pattern in the folder.  It is 
really pretty and I guess you can tell this is my favorite holiday
with all the hearts and love goodies out there.

That is it for today 
and thanks so much for stopping by!
