  2. This image was one of the first house mouse stamps I bought...I fell in love with it then and when I saw your card I was in love all over again. Now, the only difference is, you colour these little mice like nothing else! I wish I could colour these images like you do! I absolutely adore the way you did this card...oh and that bow....Yummy!

  3. WOw, and give us a bow you did. Love the bright red gingham bow that is the best finishing touch to this wonderful card. That image is one of my favs and you have colored it up beautifully. And all your signature extras look fabulous on your card.

    I will miss you, but wish you the very best as you move on from the design team. Your work is beautiful and I am glad that you shared it with us for a time.
