Happy Nurse’s Day!

May 6 is National Nurse’s Day and we wanted to say Thank You to the dedicated folks doing this really difficult job. Such caring and thoughtful workers deserve some Mousey Love and our House-Mouse friends have just the love they deserve. (Aren’t they looking sweet? Ellen drew little masks on them!)

We have several House-Mouse Designs® stamps perfect for honoring your favorite healthcare workers, or just for saying “Hope you Feel Better” to friends and family.

We added Sparkle Blends to our WindowRama Chipboard Frames to make a darling snowman tabletop diorama, and a charming Santa Wink ornament!  We used 3D Creative Sheets from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to make the fun Santa Shaker card.
