Sleddin' the Week Away

Just enough time left of this weekend to post the one and only card I managed to make this weekend. Where do weekends go? I can't believe I am starring at another Monday morning! I don't think I've mentioned recently...I have a new boss. I'll just leave it at that. Trust me you don't want to get me started on the subject of the "she who must be obeyed" boss.

On to the card...
