It is not what the world holds for you......

So, I have survived another attempt at learning to ride my board - just barely I think - I will tell you tomorrow once my poor body has had adequate time to react! Err, well I may not have a chance because I am gonna be at it again tomorrow. I said to hubby the other day, I must be having a mid-life crisis or something - what woman in their right mind tries to learn to snowboard when she can already ski quite adequately? Really, I must be nuts!!! I guess that adventurous streak of mine is showing itself, lol!

It was an absolutely gorgeous day out at the hill - I can hardly believe this weather. It is currently plus 4 and sunshiny beautiful! It feels like the end of March or beginning of April rather than the beginning of February. It is quite enjoyable, only I hope it doesn't last too long lest is shorten our ski season. Or, maybe that would be a good thing so far as my poor body is concerned, lol!

I took a nasty wipeout last weekend which made me come to the conclusion that it was time for a helmet. (I make the boys wear them after all!) I didn't grow up skiing with a helmet so I hadn't thought much about it until I took a wipeout last weekend and bumped my head - toque and goggles went flying! Thanks goes out to Holly for loaning me a helmet so that I can "protect my thoughts" - I think I may need them! Well, I took another similar wipeout today and bumped my head, but at least this time my noggin was protected. I still think I need some motrin though...

Enough about slippery boards and snow, my project today is for the challenge at Pollycraft where they would like us to use our favourite things. I have several favourite things right now, two of which are quote stamps and paper with music notes.

I love how my little fleur turned out. I saw Donna do this with rhinestones awhile back and decided to try it. With a bit of ink distressing and playing around with the petals, I love how it came out, it's my fave part of the card.

I think I've been long-winded enough for today! If you are still with me, have a fantastic weekend! Maybe go and try out something new - despite the bodily bumps and bruises, it really can be quite exhilarating!


What I used:
stamp: Kraftin Kimmie - Krafty Quotes #2
papers: Bo Bunny ETC. - available at DAT'S
embellishments: flower punch, Kaiser rhinestones


  1. Great card...perfect vintage Shanna...and you are crazy for learning to snowboard. I stick to skiing. I already decided that I'm going to get a helmet...if I hit the slopes. Head injuries are too scary. Drooling over chocolate chip cookies is good, drooling all the not. See you Sunday...Lee-Ann :)

  2. love your gorgeous card Shanna, the music paper is fab and I love that little flower!
    good luck with the boarding, it is always fun to try something new right? Mind you, I will stick to ski-ing which I do badly, can't imagine how terrible I would be on a board!
    Have a great weekend, Debxx

  3. This is beautiful Shanna! That quote is just fabulous and I love how your wee flower turned out! Have fun snowboarding! I had to buy a helmet to protect my thoughts too... for some reason I kept wiping out and landing on my head!

    Thanks for joining us for our Favourite Things challenge at Pollycraft!



Thanks for visiting! I love to hear what you think of my work! :)
