Gruffies are here!
Oh my goodness, these are so adorable! House Mouse has come out with another new line called "Gruffies". They are sweet bears. And I thought the Happy Hoppers were cute, these guys are even cuter.
I have been in bed sick with the Flu all week. Came down with it 2:30 a.m. Tuesday morning (or at least that's when I woke up with the chills and a 102.7 temp!) and to top it off my 5 year old has been sick with it since Sunday. Now if I had enough strength I could haven driven myself to the doctor but by the time I did it was past the 48 hour mark for Tamiflu. So word to the wise, if you suddenly get a high fever with the chills and your body aches and you are exhausted - get to the doctor before the 48 hours has gone by! Fun taking care of a sick 5 year old from a bed, you end up getting up a lot!
Anyway back to the Gruffies. I received my Gruffie called "Tower of Presents" in the mail yesterday and couldn't wait to stamp it. I feel better today (finally getting better!) so I sat down and made a card with it. So cute! It took forever to color in each present though and I signed up for a swap with it, yikes! I used the SU watercolor pencils and blending pen. I put stickles on the bows to have something special. He is actually supposed to be a Panda Bear but I felt like doing a brown bear today. As you can tell you can color it however you want. The sentiment says "You make me happy" and I think inside I will put "as a tower of presents" or something like that :) It is a big stamp so it is hard to mat and put a sentiment on. Never the less you can see such delight in his sweet face :)
