Be My Valentine

Awwww, isn't that the word that comes to mind on seeing this adorable Di's Digi Designs' mouse, who is willing to give his heart to someone?   Although typically, my favorite color is pink, I decided I wanted a bit more striking contrast, so what better way than to use red and black, don't you agree?   I recently bought this Cheery Lynn heart diecut, since I couldn't resist the lacy design (and it comes with a larger heart of the same design).   I cut two of this particular size, one in white and one in red, then cut off the edging of the red one, to glue in the white center for a more striking look.
Thank you all for leaving lovely comments, and I'm SO excited that I now have reached a total of 100 followers.
