Mistletoe Love and Kisses


Today's card is being entered  into these challenges:
House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #309 Anything Goes with the option of Love and/or Valentine's, Hostess Bunny. 

Although it is a Christmas stamp, it does have a romantic feel. And to help emphasize that more, I added the hearts surrounding the mice.

I hope y'all are having a wonderful Valentine's Day or a great weekend! I love this stamp because it shows how much work can go into that special kiss.

The first Valentine's Day I had with my husband was wonderful! We were still dating at the time. We had only been dating since Thanksgiving. And one of the things we enjoyed doing was going on walks through the grounds of the State Capital. (We live in Austin, TX) So that Valentine's evening he picked me up for our date and before dinner we went on a walk. While we were on our walk he sat me down on one of the benches. And he proposed. We will be celebrating our 19th Valentine's Day today.

And although he will be resting from having laser eye surgery today. We still love each other now as much as we did back then. I'd say even more, as we've grown together a lot in all these years.
