Surprise Party with Mice

I’m really happy with this year’s House Mouse Stamp of the Month (SOTM) collection, all the stamps are wonderful. In the past years I’ve usually only ordered about four of five SOTM stamps from the collection. Each month I get really excited when I get that “Your Stamps Have Shipped” email from Dick at HM Stamps.

This stamp is Surprise Party and it is the SOTM for May. I used Spring Iris, Key Lime, and Hollyhock cardstock… very springy colors (all from Close to My Heart) and Pocket Full of Posies (DCWV) designer paper… love the glitter. I added Frosted Lace Stickles to the top of the party hat and Diamond Stickles to the other areas of the party hat… you can never have too much sparkle!

Today was my first day out and about. I took Jake to the groomers… he looks so handsome. I had lunch with my sister at Red Robin’s… I got totally sick afterwards (I’ll save you all from the gory details (wink)). I wasn’t sure if the sickness was from the food or from my surgery! Tonight I’m pretty exhausted but I did want to get this card posted before going to bed. Enjoy and thanks for reading ~ Jovi
