Let it Snow!!!

 A new month a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge, the theme is always everything goes but there is an option to feature Snowflakes on your project. 

I can't believe January is over and we are on to February and it's a good time to make a "snow" card,  I just heard the weather report and we are readying ourselves for another storm, not sure where I'm going to put the snow as I'm not very tall and it's hard to throw the snow up on the already huge piles. Again it will be a good reason to stay inside and play catchup with some cards.  In keeping with the "snow piles" I picked a House Mouse Gruffie. 

First I found a piece of oxide inked watercolour pa
per, looks perfect for a wintery sky, I stamped the Gruffie, coloured and fussy cut, he sure looks dangerously close to the edge of the precipice. Added a couple more snowbanks and Let It Snow is from Elizabeth Craft Designs and it was cut three times and glued together to give it a tiny bit of height. 

Closer look at the Gruffie.

The sentiment is a Stampendous Cling Mount stamp.

My laptop has recently updated to Windows 11, it's been a learning curve, everything I do from putting photos on the computer to editing them has been very frustrating. The computer wouldn't even load Google Chrome, a lot of sites do not work well with Edge, in hindsight I should have clicked NO. 

I am entering this in:

ABC Christmas Challenge ~~ A Anything Christmas & B

Christmas Kickstart Challenge ~~ Sentiment takes center stage.

Thanks for stopping by and stop over at the main blog and check out the projects the rest of the design  team have made. Not not making Christmas cards yet then check out the Stencil, CAS, Watercolour, or Anything Goes with Dies challenges.

Beautiful background. This is a cute Gruffie. I'd be worried to stand too close also. I don't know how he's looking down. Thank you for joining us. {Bunny} Designer for House Mouse and Friends

don't you hate those computer updates - makes you want to pull your hair out. Your card is so cute and very appropriate for all the snow and cold we are having.

Another adorable House Mouse card!

OH BOY, that snow hill looks daunting for your Gruffie. What a fun card . Love how you colored it up too. Thanks for sharing your card with us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.


Thanks too about your post about Windows 11. I did click NO because they always have so much trouble when they first introduce a new version. Now reading your comments I'm glad I did.

Just spotted this over at Addicted to Stamps and More. Love your Gruffie and how perfectly he's fussy cut. It's a cute winter scene - so much better on paper than out in the driveway...

Gorgeous colours - great fussy-cutting. Hopefully he doesn't go over the edge!

It's definitely still winter here, Barb! We had flurries today and are expecting 10cm+ tomorrow. We finally got rid of the ice in our driveway, oh well! Your skiing bear is adorable, and I love the scene you made. The inside looks amazing too!
