A Sledding We Will Go


I had the worst time making this card.  I bought the stamp (Northwoods) at our local craft store after seeing a card made with it.  But I could not get anything to look right.  Wednesday I went back to the craft store and took a look at their card.  There’s was on stripped paper but I didn’t have any stripes that looked good.  So after getting out several sheets of paper the plaid (Paper Pizazz) hit the spot.  Down the side they had two big stars but I couldn’t get the stars to look right.  I took the mittens and cap from All Decked Out.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  Brad is from Hobby Lobby.  Ribbon from JoAnn’s.  The card is on dark brown paper.  I stamped the image with CTMH’s Cocoa and it is colored with PrismaColor Red.  Hat is stamped in Cranberry and mittens in Outdoor Denim.  When trying different color cardstock to put the card on again I kept coming up empty but I had a piece of brown cardstock already cut and folded and I just hadn’t put it away so I picked it up and the rest is history.  The sled is stamped on kraft paper from our local craft store and there is no name on it.  The rope handle is natural hemp from CTMH.

Today is a foggy icky drizzly day for winter in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  It is supposed to start freezing tomorrow night.  We will need a foot of snow to cover up all the ice.  It will be nice to have fresh snow, right now it is all brown and dirty. 

Picked up the new Spring/Summer CTMH catalog and I fell in love with the cover.  A baby girl scrapbook page all in pink and delightful saying: I am so glad to meet you! This most definitely love at first sight.  And I know the perfect baby girl to send it to.  I just need to call Leola and find out what size baby book Kambrie has. 

I am going to be spending what is left of 2010 cleaning.  Tomorrow I have to hit checkbooks big time and get bills paid.

Happy New Year, my friend! Your card - after all your trouble - turned out great. I love the plaid paper and the old-fashioned sled image. Every detail is just right.

It's cold and blustery here - a perfect day to stay at home all snuggly and warm.

Your sentiments about the cover of the new CTMH catalog matched by own. I love it, too.
