Goin' downhill

     This card marks my first project as a guest designer for Inky Impressions Stamps.  I'll be guesting for them for the months of January and February.  They have a challenge blog and an inspiration blog and I'll be posting cards on both.
     The company belongs to Nicole Mokshefsky and she stocks her rubberstamps, paper, and embellishments.  This image is one of a few digital ones she offers and is called "MaMaw Skiing".  Like the sledders that I posted a few days ago, this is another winter past time I have never tried.  The bodily harm index would probably go up even higher on this one.  I can just picture myself wrapped around a tree.  LOL  MaMaw, however, looks totally capable of conquering the slopes.  I just couldn't resist matching her up with a wise crack sentiment.  :-)
     Anyway, MaMaw was colored with Copics.  There's a little machine stitching and some scrunched up seam binding for enbellishments.  That little snowflake charm also comes from Inky Impressions.  Nicole has tons of different kinds of charms in the store so go check out all the goodies.
     I'll be back with two cards for Inky on Wednesday. One is for the weekly challenge and the other is for the Inky Impressions new release blog hop.  There are some great rubberstamps up for prizes so don't miss out.  These stamps are great quality deep rubber for those wonderful clean crisp stamped images.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments--any sentiment + use your scraps
Craft Us Crazy--anything new and/or humorous
Little Darlings Challenges--cold
Creative Card Crew--snow day
Digital Tuesday--winter wonderland

     Hope MaMaw makes you smile today.  Be blessed!

You are absolutely hilarious! I used to teach 3 and 4 year olds...talk about nerve..."SLOW DOWNNNNNNNN!" Your card (first one) is deliciously cute and I believe they are going to LUV you! It is a good challenge for you, just as the cutsies is a good challenge for me. It increases the learning artistic curve and man, this one is uber great Tracy. The sentiment is so hilarious and your coloring and matching is beautiful! And talk about being chic with the hills! lol Smiles and Chuckles, Samara
