I love this card. The image is one of my favorites and your die cut hearts along with the flowers and lace really help to make the image pop. Well, I have to tell you I loved reading your post this morning and all I have to say is if you are going to take a lover, make sure he has enough money to buy you lots of crafting items. LOL Thanks so much for playing along with us here at House Mouse & Friends this week. Hopefully we get to see more of your cards in the near future.
