Today I'm showing you the HMCF02 Jelly Bean Thief Cling Stamp . This little guy reminds me of when I was little and my older sisters would steal my jelly beans after Easter!

I know, I know, it doesn't have a stencil, but it was so perfect for the day after Easter that I just had to share it with you. My next three posts will all have House Mouse designs and stencils, I promise!
