Happy House Mouse Monday!!


Happy 3rd Anniversary House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog!!

It’s REALLY hard to believe it’s been THREE YEARS that we’ve been having this much fun!   🙂  

In honor of this momentous occasion, we’re having a BLOG-HOP … with LOTS of prizes from the HM&F Design Team!

Our actual challenge today is HAPPY BIRTHDAY/ANNIVERSARY cards … plus FLOWERS.    Ooops … we can just pretend mine says Happy Birthday, okay?    I was so concerned about the flowers, that I left off the Happy Birthday!!  


My prize will be a $20.00 electronic Gift Certificate from my FAVORITE place to shop for HM stamps …  The Official House Mouse Designs website!!

Soooo, on with the hop!   If you’ve arrived here from the lovely Natascha Banning’s blog, you’re on the right path.   If you’ve just happened to stop by today, you can start at the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog for a complete list of all participants and details on the hop.
