This week the challenge at Sassy Cheryl's is to use the sketch provided and make a card featuring snow. I bought this new stamp from Sassy Cheryl's shop over the Christmas holidays with a Secret Santa gift and thought it would be perfect. I also thought the timing was great since my husband is taking our five year-old Granddaughter ice skating this afternoon.  She started to learn last winter and has been itching to get back at it.  She is a stubborn little one and wants to practice so she can master it.  She has also decided she should put her own ponytails in and worked at it for about 10 minutes the other day.  There was no way she would let Grandma help her.  She finally got one ponytail in but it had a bump so she pulled the elastic out and declared she was having "plain hair" that day. 

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

  17. This card is great as usual. I love that granddaughter of yours. Plain hair days go so much better with the warm hat skaters have to wear. She has great fashion sense. Thanks for playing with us at the Digi Doodle Shop Challenge this week. **Linda
