House Mouse Challenge No. 23 ~ Valentine’s Day! :)

I like this challenge — it was actually my suggestion!   🙂   You’ll notice I made a few slight adjustments to the HM stamp!! 



Since our theme was Valentine’s Day and my very favorite gift for Valentine’s day is CHOCOLATE (in addition, of course, to roses and diamonds!  lol)   I wanted to try to make this image a little more Valentine’s Day themed!  


Chocolate Covered Strawberries! 🙂

The original stamp is called Sleeping With Strawberries, featuring Mudpie.  I added brown Copics over the red colored strawberries to make it look like they are lucious chocolate covered strawberries….mmmmm! 


Isn't Life Sweet?!

Isn't Life Sweet?!
