CAS + Mouse

Hi everyone ... just a short post today...

Here is a card I made for the last House Mouse Challenge - which asked us to use hearts ..

 Valentine Mice

I combined "Maxwell's Note" and "Relaxing" to create this little scene ...

Valentine Mice Deet

The little 'note' is hand drawn :0)

Sorry this one is so brief today  - I became 'home' to a new little flu bug last night (urgh) ... and am also feeling very distracted over our DEAR Golden Retreiver, who suddenly has become really ill. We're not sure if she's going to make it through ... :0( I'm just so sad.

Stamps: Relaxing, Maxwell's Note - House Mouse Designs
Sentiment from Simple Valentine  Papertrey Ink

ETA - to everyone who has left love and best wishes - thank you *so, so, so* much! I can't tell you how much I've appreciated your thoughts! The news on our lovely dog is not good. She is terminally ill. We have until Saturday morning to say our last goodbyes and then will to go in with her to be with her as she takes her last journey ... (lots of tears here ...)

This is just darling, Nerina! Love how you combined the two stamps to make a little scene.

I'm so sorry to hear about your furry friend! I hope both of you are on the road to recovery soon!

Heather P. said...

Oh no! :( So sorry to hear that you're under the weather and that your pup is ill... It's hard enough dealing with a sick pet when you feel 100%, let alone when you have the flu. :( Hope you both make swift recoveries! *Hugs to you!*

Oh Nerina I am so sorry about your pup....... no matter how old they are they are still your pup right?? I will say an extra prayer for you because I know how hard this is for you and your family. And of course the card is so sweet I might just get a cavity looking at it :) xoxo

Oh you pulled out your House Mouse stamps! Love the little scene you have made.

I am so sorry to read about your beloved pet. We have two very old dogs and it is so hard to see them not acting like young pups anymore. My heart goes out to you and your family at this very difficult time. Sending big hugs and get well wishes your way.

Kimberly said...

Nerina, your card is lovely, but I'm so sorry about your pet. I'll keep you in my prayers.

Terri said...

Super cute card. I do not like mice but you always make them look so cute. I am so sorry to hear about your dog. I know how hard it is to let them go, we have had to it twice but hopefully you can find comfort in knowing she is not suffering and will be in a better place. If there is anything I can do to help you through this please let me know.

Terri said...

I forgot to say I am sorry to hear you are sick and I hope you feel better soon!

Sharron said...

Adorable card--love the little mice! Wonderful use of buttons too--how clever to have one just peeking out.

Hope you are feeling better and that your fur baby is showing improvement. My thoughts are with you--I know how they become a part of the family and it's heartbreaking when they become ill. Sending HUGS!

I have a sweet Golden Retriever.....adopted her almost one year ago now. She adds so much love to our little household. I'm just in tears now for you. I'm so very, very sorry........
Love your card. Those House Mouse stamps are just so cute. I really should break mine out and play with them more. Such a waste to let them gather dust. I love the subtle embossing here, and your hand-drawn note warms my heart. Brilliant how you combined these images.
