April Showers and House-Mouse Designs®

Crocus Droplet by Kristine Reynolds

It’s Friday, and our April Showers are just about over! All this week we’ve outfitted ourselves with boots, and cute sayings stamps, layers of umbrellas and let the rain fall with stencils so today we get to play in the rain with our House-Mouse Designs characters and still stay dry!

Monica mouse is so thirsty she takes the chance of a few raindrops crashing upon her nose so she can drink the fresh water from a Crocus bloom.

And here are more rainy scenes of the House-Mouse characters from Ellen Jareckie!

These mice know when to weather the stormy skies or create their own precipitation for their outdoor adventures. You can stop by the House-Mouse Designs section of our website to see the entire collection or go to the New House-Mouse Designs section in our What’s New section.

There are still more projects for our April Shower theme from our design team!
