It’s a Star Spangled Week

This week our Design Team is celebrating the 4th of July with our Star Spangled Mice stamp. One of the House-Mouse Designs® images from Ellen Jareckie, this stamp has Mudpie, Amanda, and Maxwell are all wrapped up in an American Flag. They’re celebrating American Independence Day with lots of stars and probably cheese! The stamp is available in wood mounted and Cling Rubber™, of course, so that your holiday can be patriotic, too! Image measures approximately 4″ X 4″.

Up until July 4th, 2009, we will be collecting any birthday cards you send us so that soldiers serving overseas may have birthday greetings to send back home to husbands, wives, kids, mothers, fathers, friends and other loved ones.
