Merry Monday #265 - Outdoor Winter Activity

Time for Nina's challenge #265 at Merry Monday to showcase a winter activity on your Christmas card.


I went for a new-to-me Pure Innocence set from My Favorite Things. Don't know what it is about this little girl that draws me to her. I've seen some darling cards featuring various versions her and decided to order a couple. Here's my card featuring the sledding girl.

Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop-tone Snow Cone,
scrap of Authentique for banner - not sure which collection...
Stamps - My Favorite Things Dashing By; Simon Say Stamp Falling Snow
Dies - MFT Dashing By; Lawn Fawn Hillside Borders; Hero Arts flag banner (retired)
Other - Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder, Hero Arts White Puff Embossing Powder, Copic Markers, 
foam tape, Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink, Memento Tuxedo Black, Distress Embossing Ink,
Lawn Fawn snowflake sequins

I stamped and colored the image with Copic markers, then stamped the sentiment on a banner. I formed a horizontal top-fold A2 card and embossed falling snow using a cool puffy white powder, then I added a few snowflake sequins - too much?? I couldn't resist! I dry embossed a snowy hill for her downhill run. Done!

I remember many a fun winter day as a child, sledding down various hills at a family friend's farm. We lived in town and they had the best hills out in the country! Then we had yummy hot cocoa to help us warm up. Any fun memories you want to share? I'd love to hear them!

Thanks for stopping and I hope you visit Merry Monday to enjoy all the wonderful creations of the other Design Team members! Please play along in Nina's fun challenge if you have the time this week.

She is a cutie! Really like the dry-embossed snow bank/hill and the colors you used for the sledder!

We used to sled down the hill in our back yard (I grew up in Colorado). I recall going to a town in the mountains and "tubing" on innertubes. Afterwards we ice skated and had hot cocoa. (Sounds like something from a Hallmark movie!)
