DREAMing of Mousey Mischief, etc.

EEEK! Mice have been invading the Stampendous blog all this week, and today they’re running rampant with Dreamweaver as well! Of course, we’re referring to our favorite House Mouse Designs® which are perfectly paired with Dreamweaver backgrounds and even embossing paste. As an example, here is Kristine Reynold’s “Potted Mouse”, using the perfect coordinating background… the Dreamweaver Black-eyed Susans stencil, paste-embossed, and ink-stenciled on top.
