LET'S GO SKIING

Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! It seems like forever since I last posted. I apologize, I have had the flu and it really got me down. Anyway, I decided to do a little project. The image is from Victoria Case for SCACD - Mini Winter and Hugs. This set is just too cute! "I Heart Powder" is a perfect name for this stamp.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

A Spoonful of Sugar - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Not another card
ABC Challenge - I is for Ice and Snow
Crafts and Me - Snowflakes
Crafty Creations - Christmas is Coming
For Fun Challenge - Anything Goes
Papercutz Challenge - Anything Goes
Stampin for the Weekend - Winter Theme
Just Us Girls - 3-D Challenge
One Stop Craft Challenge - Christmas Cuties


I colored the image with Copics added some Flower Soft Diamond Range - Silver around her hat, coat and boots. For the snow I used Flower Soft Diamond Range - Polar White with a little Doodlebug Glitter Sugar - Lily White for just a little extra glisten. The skis look all waxed and ready to go thanks to a little Diamond Glaze .I will be going to see my grandchildren next month in Colorado and this little tin with this image is perfect for Ski Lift Tickets and small enough for me to carry on the plane. Remember you can click on the picture and enlarge it to see the products up close.

This tin was so much fun and messy to do. I used the Viva Decor Precious Metal Paint - Silver
to paint it - one coat does it. The sides looked kinda plain to me so in my stuff I had some Maya Road Chipboard - Snowflakes and used the Viva Decor Precious Metal Paint in Olive and Crimson.
Here is another angle. The snow looks like it has powder and glistens - the slopes are calling my name.

Please check out the store blog here and see all the beautiful cards and projects the Design Team has been doing while I have been sick. They are totally awesome.

Thank you for stopping by and HAVE A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING !!

Hugs,

Oh my, how CA-UTE! Your little lady actually looks like she's in a wintery place standing in the snow! Love her "furry" trimmed hat and outfit...too sweet ♥ Cool way to add the 3-D holiday embellishments (along with the fun snowflakes and tree :)

Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls this week!
