Mice all over the house


thank God they were all in a box! Now I know these didn't arrive yesterday, they must have been delivered on Saturday and were left outside on my front porch! Where's the love? My mail man and i have a love hate relationship. If my dog is outside he won't deliver my mail...sometimes he'll just leave it in the street.and he's mean to her...she's as gentle as can be and he knows that!
I have a big beautiful mailbox and if it's raining he insists on leaving my mail on my front porch steps so that my mail gets soggy. and when the sun is shinning brightly he puts it in the mail box! LOL! One year I left his Christmas envelope taped to the top of my mail box. He never got his envelope cause he never approached the mailbox. All of the neighbors can't stand him and even passed around a petition to get him moved to another route. He says that he loves our neighborhood and just won't go!
I can't wait to ink these up. Aren't they all so cute.

This finished card is the first card i made using a house mouse stamp. I saw the image in a gallery on SCS and quickly became addicted.

Thanks for the visit and have a great day!

OH MY Gosh...what a great bunch of stamps...they are all too cute ! The blue jeans! Lilacs, poppy thistles, pine boughs, fence post, Hugs! Lips! So many cute stamps! They are adorable!

Ow..on the mail carrier! We've been lucky to have good ones. Though we've had a few things arrive damaged lately, don't think it's necessarily his fault though, more like whoever loads things on the truck! I've always tried to treat our mail carriers well...my mother was a mail carrier and my dad was a city cop :)


Have a GREAT Monday!

Don't ya hate it when the mail/UPS people just don't do the basic things you expect them to - my UPS person used to wait until I answered the door and would set the package down for me - he was so nice - then they moved him - and the lady now never even knocks, she throws the package and runs - I don't get it!! Anyhoo - love your little house mice - the coloring is fabulous!! Have fun with all your new stuff!
