Rather Be Skiing (FTHS image)

Hi, everyone. I would like to extend a warm welcome to my newest follower - Наталочка Нана - so nice to have you here!

Today I made a quick card to participate in the sketch challenge over at From the Heart Stamps - I {heart} sketches. They are celebrating their 100th sketch - Congratulations!  I think I did a pretty good job considering our power was off and I coloured and assembled this with very little light!  We had snow and freezing rain - a real mess!  I was so happy the electricity was restored so I could link up my card  - among other reasons!


The image is called Rather be Skiing, and I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils and added clear glitter along the snow and the snowman's body.  I used my Nellie's Multi-frame Circles to die-cut the image and the green circle behind it.  The dp is from Lawn Fawn and the sentiment is an old wood-mounted stamp from All Night Media/Plaid, which I stamped on a leftover scrap of vellum in Ancient Page Pine.  I finished off the card with a snowflake button.

Here's the sketch I followed:

    mean it is already the end of the world. We struggle and experienced those things
    for us to become strong, aware, and responsible of our actions. Thanks for
    sharing such a wonderful story.I hope that you can inspire more people.
