Are you ready to go skiing? This Gruffie is!!

To start off with I wanted to enter the House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge  ~~ Winter Fun of course they are on the second week so I only have until Saturday to get it done, then I spotted the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #334 and it was perfect for the image I had picked. Don't you love it when everything comes together. Well it didn't stop there I'm following Merry Monday Christmas challenge blog   and Jingle Belles Rock  for their Christmas challenges, I'm not falling into the running out of Holiday cards this year. So here is what I came up with.

I used the new Gruffie I bought at the Butterfly Moon's Christmas open house isn't he brave.

Close up of the super cute little guy.

Keeping with the winter theme a simple sentiment

Cute card, Barb! Adorable stamp! I made a card for this sketch too but haven't photographed it yet, maybe tonight or tomorrow. Are you getting any snow? We had a bad storm yesterday (snow/high winds) and lost our electricity yet again. At least it was only out for about an hour. Enjoy your day!
