There is a Mouse in my House!

Good Morning Friends and Welcome Visitors!

I saw this House Mouse stamp and had to have it!  So cute!  So of course I have a story...last summer I had grown sunflowers in my garden.  I cut off the seed heads and put them in my greenhouse to dry.  I went into my greenhouse one winter day and there was a mouse sitting there eating a sunflower seed.  The funny thing was, he didn't run away!  He looked at me as if to say "look free food, try one it is good!"  He was so cute, I didn't even try to shoo him away.

Here is a close up of the stamp.

Here is the inside of the card.
