Thief of hearts

(You can find my Whimsy and Stars Studio Blog Hop post here
my Blogaversary Candy post here)

     Somebody call 911!  There's a heart thief on the loose!  LOL
     I've made several Valentine cards the last couple of weeks and my hubby walked in while I was making the little mouse card with Lucy's Valentine.  He said "Awww is that for me?"  I said "No way!  You have to have something more manly and I made him a criminal! LOL  Now my hubby is no criminal , but he did steal my heart almost 28 years ago.  I don't normally decorate the insides of my cards, but this one needed a reply.

     It's an "Anything Goes" challenge this week at Mo's Digital Pencil.  The thief image is called "Stole My Heart" and is one of the newer images in Mo's store.  I added a tag in behind the image and covered a couple of chipboard hearts with some of the DP.  I think my hubby will like this better than the mouse.  ☺
     So grab one of your Mo images and come join in the fun this week for your chance at a $5.00 gift voucher from Mo's store.  Don't forget to check out all the inspiration on the DP2 blog from my super talented DT sistahs too!
