Good morning and Happy Monday!!!! Today, I have the pleasure of joining the extremely talented designers of the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog as they celebrate their 3rd Birthday!!!! I cannot express how ecstatic I am to be able to join them!!! You should have arrived here from Christine Craig's incredible blog...if not, then you will want to head on over to Vicki Parson's inspiring blog which is the start of the HM & F birthday blog hop celebration! I don't know if you are aware of this, but it was the adorable House Mouse stamps (along with their Happy Hoppers and Gruffies counterparts) that started my rubber-stamping/ paper-crafting addiction. My first stamp set was by Stampin' Up...but my first LOVE was House Mouse!!! Believe it or not...even my husband is keen on these cuties. Actually, he is the one who bought me my first hoard of House Mouse stamps. Gotta love a man who willingly supports and encourages his wife's stamping addiction...I think the technical term is a stamping enabler;) Hahaha!!
Also, it was the House Mouse & Friends Challenge Blog that led me to create my first blog (P.M.S etc...aka: Paper, Markers, Stamps, etc...). Regrettably, I had to delete it because some kind of cooties got into it and prevented me from being able to add anything or edit it. :( All I can say is, thanks to House Mouse stamps and the HM & F Challenge Blog, I was able to meet many, many wonderful and talented people...and a few have become lifelong friends...you could even say they are like family (you know who you are)!! :o) Okay...enough of my blah, blah, blah!!! Your next stop on this fabulously FUN hop is my wonderfully talented and super sweet friend, America Kuhn! You know she has something AMAZING to share with you!!!
One last thing before you go, to add to the birthday festivities...I have a little blog candy up for grabs :o)
