Summer heat is upon us, so what better theme to have than the Stampendous Design Team  "Keeping Cool" theme! This sweet House Mouse Ice Pop stamp, along with the sentiment are some of the wonderful products I receive from Stampendous for being part of their Design Team! 

These adorable mice are cooling off on a hot summer day with a delicious Ice Pop! Hmmm...I can almost taste it!
