Let's go sledding!

Welll, I WISH! LOL! Not here in NE Texas you wont get to that is, go sledding! But we have in the past. I can remember a few times as a kid, going down to the interstate bridge because that is the only hill we had around my Mom's house, lol. And does anybody remember making snow ice cream???? Would I do that now...Nooooo, lol! I think the air is too dirty now...probably was back 40 years ago too, but still....haha! Obviously it didnt kill me! You could never use the FIRST snow, had to wait and hope it did it 2 times! That ice cream was even better than the July 4th ice cream we used to make every year! OMG, and remember sitting on the old hand crank ice cream makers?? till your butt got so cold had to get a towel to sit on, haha! Ooookkkkkay....on to my card, lol! Sorry got carried away there....

This card was made using Rupa Shevde's newest set from Gina K Designs called "Warm and Wonderful":




A CAS card that I have done...really quick card using the sled stamp in the set, colored with copics, cut out and then on pop dots on the card. The 'snow' is vellum I tore the edges on a curve to resemble hills. I drew in some lines on the sled to look more like the olden wood sleds, I hope at least it reminds you of that, lol! I wish I had of put some glitter on this...but you know me and my fear of all things glittery, haha!

Ok, thats all for now...thanks for stopping by and listening/reading my ramblings, lol! I hope everyone has a very creative week!

Fabulous vellum snowdrifts! This reminds me of "the Oklahoma style" of sledding as a youngster ... which I'm sure is different than sledding in true snowy climates!
