Winter Joy

It's no secret that I like to spend time playing in the white stuff - skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, I am game! I had a fabulous ski lesson last night out at Lappe Nordic, skiing under a breathtakingly beautiful, starry sky - it was bliss, and a great workout! If I hadn't been in a lesson, I would have been stopping every 10 minutes just to take in the scenery!

Having said that, this was a super fun card to create! I had been wanting to use my ski die from Winter Gear at Simon Says on a project, then I came across the winter themed brads gifted to me by Donna some time ago and this is what happened. It actually started out as a tag and morphed into a card!

I would like to share at the following challenge blogs:
