Penny Black - For You

Hi everyone.  Happy Valentine's Day!!  Hope you are all having a wonderful and relaxing day.  

Penny Black has a new release "Daydream" with went live yesterday.  This is the first image I'm playing with (...For You).  These mice are so adorable carrying the beautiful rose.  Smiled the whole time I was making this card! :)  I wanted to have the mice standing on something fun, so added a chain of hearts (heart image from Huggable) for them to run across.   Both cards are watercoloured with a mix of Distress Inks and Dye Inks.

Close-up ...
You can see the shimmer of clear Wink of Stella on the hearts to add a little sparkle. :)

Next card is super CAS.  I just used the rose from the same image above ...
This rose is so gorgeous, I wanted to show it all by itself.  I then fussy-cut and popped up on my card front that has a wonderful sentiment from one of the other new sets - Smiles.

I'm sending this card over to The Flower Challenge #53.

I wish I could attach an audio file right now, Lolly, because Hammy is squealing with joy over these cute little mice tip-toeing over the schparkly hearts to bring their special loved one a beautiful rose! It is just too cute and romantic for words! And your twofer of the single perfectly painted rose is completely CASlicious and elegant. I love a design that can be used for many occasions. Thank you for showcasing these new stamps for us! Love, Dolly

Somebody you love very much must have received this adorable Valentine, and shared all the smiles you enclosed while making it, Loll!
So darling - and a beautifully done solo rose!

The little mice delivering the Valentine rose are delightful, Loll! I love how they are skipping across the hearts! The single rose by itself is so elegant and beautiful! It deserves it's own space! I hope you and Gord had a LOVEly day, my friend!

TK said...

I love your meeses to pieces! So cute and the way they're running across the hearts -- great grounding. And yes, the rose is just beautiful

Leslie Miller said...

I'm smiling all over looking at this! You know how I adore cuteness, and you've given this first card an extra dose with the string of hearts and your pretty watercoloring. Speaking of pretty, it's clever of you to see the rose on its own in all its glory. That's one gorgeous card, Loll!

Debbie said...

Both are beauties, Loll. Those mice certainly caught my eye when I was watching Jill’s release video.

Nstiz said...

If only I could watercolor like this! I tried yesterday and again major fail. I will be up soon for my lessons. These are so beautifully painted and the depth to that single rose is just amazing!

Mac Mable said...

Both cards are fantastic, Loll! The cute mice walking on a chain of sparkly heats and carrying a rose!! This card will make any receiver smile and happy!
The rose in darker pink and green shades looks stunning against the big white space. Love the simplicity and elegance of the super CAS card!
I hope you and Gord had a happy Valentine's Day. :-)

Ros Crawford said...

These are beautiful! I love that single rose!

Bobby said...

Those darling mice tiptoeing across those hearts made me smile too, Loll. And I love the shading on the single rose. Am I supposed to thank you for sharing it at The Flower Challenge? lol

Two lovely cards, Loll. The first so much fun with these cute mice. I perfectly understand why you were smiling when you created this card. And the other card so brilliant CAS! I love this great contrast for the rose on the white background. I love this card
