Meet Maxwell Mouse.  He is one of the first images I saw of the first release from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and it was love at first site!  He is also drawn by Crissy Armstrong and he is absolutely adorable!  I just love him roasting his marshmallow over the matchstick!  I think I forgot to mention yesterday that each of the images drawn by Crissy come with their own sentiments.  So, when you order Maxwell, you will also get this "Toasty" sentiment stamp.

I paired Maxwell with some Cherry Hill patterned papers from October Afternoon and colored him with copic markers.  I also colored the circle the sentiment is stamped on with copic markers to make it look like a toasted marshmallow, too.  Check out more sneak peeks on the design team ladies' blogs: Kimmie, Andrea, Diana, Elaine, Jeanne, Tara, and Vicki.

Tomorrow night, I will have a sneak peek at one of the new images drawn by Annie Rodrigue.  Have a great weekend!
