Love is in the Air!!

Evening Folks!
I hope you're all managing to stay warm and cosy if you've had snow today. We didn't get much more than an inch really, much to the disappointment of my son, and what we did have is now nearly gone!! I've managed to fit in lots of crafting time this weekend by ignoring the laundry mountain!!! 
I particularly wanted to make another House Mouse card because
a) I'm getting addicted to these mice
b) I bought this stamp in the sales and hadn't inked it up yet and
c) House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge have a great blog hop and challenge which I can't resist entering!!

3 good excuses for ignoring the ironing I'd say!!

Here's my finished card:
It's a bit unusual for me because it is 8" x 8" and with a lot of embellishments on!! Not my usual style but I love the end result !! 
 The stamp is called ' Lovely Confetti' and the papers are a mixture of Forever Friends Pink Parfait collection and Papermania Henbury Lane.

Now as you all know there are lots of Love challenges going on at the moment (can't think why??) and I can't resist a challenge so here goes:
