Because I love you

This week's challenge at My Craft Spot is "Cute Critters".  I made a card to send to my daughter who has been offered an admissions interview to a midwifery program. Here in Canada, the program is highly competitive so it's quite a privilege to even get to the interview stage.  Erin's interview is on Saturday so I've popped this card in the post to let her know that her #1 fans are will be especially thinking of her and saying prayers for her on Saturday.


The sweet little mouse on my card is from Twinkle Toes.  I chalked her cheeks and ears and gave her some tiny pearls and a Posy baker's twine bow, using some fabulous twine from My Craft Spot.  She's dancing on a scalloped oval frame from Elegant Edges.  I embossed the top layer with a Tiny Hearts embossing folder.  The oval frame is popped on another frame - this one from Fancy Frames.


The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags stamp set and is stamped on a tiny tag created with My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags metal dies.  I added three little Calico Cottage heart buttons both on the tag and on the card base.

Head over to My Craft Spot to check out the adorable projects created by the rest of the design team - and then link up your own Cute Critter for a chance to win this week's prize!
