I was thrilled to hear that I had been chosen as the Weekly Winner for CASology's Challenge #191: Washi - for enteringthiscard. As a result, I get to be the Guest Designer for this week's challenge! How fun is that?!?
Yesterday, my youngest son and I participated in a 6 hour Cross-Country skiing fundraiser for Lappe Nordic Ski Club with friends! You can do 6, 12 or 24 hours. They had so much fun, they are making plans to ski the 24 hour next year!!! (not happening yet, lol!) Would you believe that on April 2nd, it felt like -14 C with the windchill? We had fresh snow on April Fool's Day which made for great conditions, but that wind was whipping it around everywhere! After the (relatively) mild weather we've been having, we were suddenly needing to wear our wool and heavy ski mitts again! Our team name was "Para-Normal Activity" as 4 of 6 of the participants are involved in the Para-Nordic Program - they came up with the name last year and it stuck! Someone had to be "on course" at all times, so each participant took turns skiing the course and each went out four times, so we spent quite a long time outdoors yesterday! Here we have one of our awesome Para-Nordic guides, Danderella's Daughter and my youngest son.
Here is our youngest relay participant alongside my son who looks like a GIANT beside her! lol
Tagging when switching skiers...
This shot includes our Team Captain and two guides. We are missing 4 guides from this photo. Look at all those smiles at the end of 6 hours of skiing! - a truly fabulous day and a great way for the children to end their ski season!
Today, it snowed again, but today I stayed tucked inside, got some laundry done and hung out in my scrap space! I got a chance to play with some of my new stamps from Jaded Blossoms! Wow, they stamp beautifully!
I am still building up my stash, so I made a few slightly different versions of this card to have on hand. I would like to share at CASology where the current challenge is WASHI! I would also like to share at Seize the Birthday - water/anything goes Cheers, Shanna :) What I used: elephant - SU "Wild About You" sentiment - Jaded Blossoms "Party Animal" washi from an art store in Halifax - can't recall the manufacturer sequins
I was in need of some generic baby cards. Isn't this paper the sweetest? It was difficult to photograph so that you can tell the elephants are glittery! My tag was up-cycled from gift packaging, I just covered up the branding in the bottom right corner and added the word "sweet". Here is the inside:
