'Tis the season for believing...


I had a chance to play with some of my Impronte d'Autore stamps yesterday and I chose to ink up the super cute Christmas Mice set. I've masked together two of the stamps from the set to create this whimsical scene of Santa mouse surprising the little mouse tots with a pre-Christmas visit. What inspired me was actually learning that Crafty Purple Frog is now carrying a selection of the Impronte d'Autore clear stamp sets, and I may or may not have already placed an order... LOL! Now, unfortunately the Christmas Mice are already sold out in both stores but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of other fun stamps to check out.  :)

OK then, time to cross a few things off my to-do list. Take care!
