Visiting Mice…

Often I receive messages saying, “Now I’ve seen this stamp set, I’ve got to have it!”  Today’s stamp set I just received yesterday…why did I ever wait so long?  I have no idea…but now I’ve got all kinds of ideas for these cute little mice.

Here’s one of them today…

  1. Billie, I have resisted this set… until now! This is just too adorable. Thanks for always inspiring me! {{{hugs}}}

  2. This is a really cute, fun card, Billie. I have resisted this set but may have to rethink it. You are so clever coming up with wonderful ideas all the time. Oh, how I wish money grew on trees!! The “b-ism” is so true. Take care. You have so much going on all the time. I think you are an energizer bunny, A-type personality. I admire that. Have a great weekend.

    • I too resisted this set HJ…but finally caved. And I’m so glad I did! Getting ready for OStage and a craft show at the same time may not have been one of my best decisions. Three of my team are going with me and for two of them it’s their first SU! Event. I’m so excited for them…should be fun!…B!
