Friends of the Gruffles

Hi everyone. I'm back today with one of my cards from my Christmas backlog!

There is a fairly new challenge blog out there called Gruffles and Friends which is another range of characters from the House Mouse range, and you can enter cards that are anything to do with ellen Jarecki's characters.

So the challenge at the moment is Anything Goes so I thought I would throw in this card which I made using the House Mouse Christmas CD that comes with a wonderful idea book too.

I have to confess that I bought this CD when it forst came out, but didn't get around to using it until this Christmas season, because I got a bit wrapped up in a number of very intricate Thomas Kinkade decoupage cards!

Anyway, here is my first card made using items from the Cd, including the lovely backing paper that you see.

I really love this little image as it is cute but not too cute and a lot of people like to feed the Garden birds in the winter (me included!) so, in this case, this was a perfect card for my In-Laws.

Well that's it from me for today.

I hope you like what you see and I look forward to having you visit again soon.

Bye for now.
