Hi all....it is indeed a sad weekend with the school tragedy in Connecticut...my heart, thoughts and prayers go out to all the families whose lives have been forever changed by the events that happened on Friday 12-14-12...
The challenge for this month was hosted by the talented Barb for the Diva's and awesome Michelle for the Darlings....The theme they chose was "Winter Travel"...fun indeed. Barb sent a kit that was full to the brim with paper, embellies and immies...wow...enough for at least 5+ cards...however I did only one...The image is "Downhill Snowman" by Whipper Snapper....(love this company)...The dsp is from Little Yellow Bicycle and there was a HUGE assortment of embellies and ribbons...(THANK YOU Barb!!!). What a fun kit..
Here is my card:
As an additional challenge we were to tell about a story related to winter travel or outside fun..Two memories come to mind...The first time I EVER skied was when my now hubby and I were dating...He of course was an accomplished skier and I ...WAS NOT..I wore corduroy pants...(wrong) and when I would ski...I would think I was going too fast so I fell on purpose. After several attempts I could tell I was testing his patience so I decided to go into the lodge and have a hot toddy while he and his buddies went for much more challenging skiing as far away from the bunny hill as possible...anyway, he had my ID with him...oops, I could not get into the bar let alone request a warm cocktail without the proper ID....so I pulled up my big girl panties and skiied the hills to find him...(was I crazy???? Yep), the snow had gotten between the cords in my pants and when it melted in the warm chalet I was freezing...I needed something warm to drink and I was on a mission to get that ID...needless to say, I found him and by the time I got back to the chalet I was frozen...and he and his buddies were about done...I didn't ski again until about 15 years later...this time I didn't wear the corduroy pants (lesson learned)....but boy did he laugh when I got to the bottom of the bunny hill...(I didn't make any advancement there). In my wonderful imagination I was swooping down the hill going back and forth just like I was supposed to...BUT to the observation of all around me...I was on a straight, fast, ski down that hill and had anyone crossed my path ....well, lets just say...they would have been calling 911 for both of us...No more skiing for me...I think I've had enough to last a lifetime...lol
Thank you all for stopping by.....please stop by all the other Darlings posts...I am sure you will not be disappointed with the awesome creations you will find...they are a talented group of friends.
Until next time,
