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.

Wine a Little, You’ll Feel Better

For our January release, Fran created several Perfectly Clear Stamps Sets that include a frame image with sentiments that fit into the frame for easy, beautiful cards. One of those is our lovely Wine Frame. A beautiful, and sometimes funny, way to invite your friends to join you for a virtual glass of something from grape juice to Cabernet.

Wine Frame Stamp Set Our Design Team had a great time sharing with this fun stamp set. Let’s take a look at what they made.

Bonus Watercolor Lesson – Dog Kisses B

Fran is back this week with even more fun using our Dog Kisses Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set. This week we ask… do you know how to mask??

Everyone is wearing masks and our puppers are no exception. Fran made sweet little masks for them so they can share the joys of togetherness.

And for you, she made a great new video showing how to mask these darling dogs into piles of puppy fun! You’ll love this great technique, and watercoloring them with Fran is such a bonus. Take a look –

We hope you enjoy these fun videos. Look for more in the coming weeks. You can click on an image below to scroll or swipe through larger sized pictures. Enjoy!
