Challenge #73 ~ ****Happy Birthday!****

Welcome back House Mouse lovers! We're super excited this week because we have a big SURPRISE for one of the House Mouse & Friends Design Team members!

Our very own wonderful sistah ~ America Kuhn ~ had a birthday yesterday! Sooooooooo, we thought it would be fun to throw a surprise party for her!! She and her family are in the midst of relocating and traveling across the USA to their new home. She has no idea we are doing this ~ but, since she does have Internet access during her trip, won't she be surprised when she visits the blog today!
