Merry Christmas Sled

Hello everyone!  I'm sorry I haven't been by your blogs lately.  It's been a busy week so far.  It's the last week of school and on Monday I went with my son's class to the Zoo at Magnetic Hill in Moncton.  It was a long and tiring day but lots of fun.  We've had company for a few days as well.  I think the busy-ness won't be ending anytime soon, either.  On Saturday we go to pick up our new puppy!  We are getting a Treeing Walker Coonhound.  They are a good hunting dog breed but make great family pets too.  Looks kind if like a beagle but taller and slimmer.  We've decided to call her Summer since we will be getting her on the first day of summer.  Here's a picture of her.

Isn't she sweet?!  And this picture doesn't do her justice either.  It's going to be an interesting summer!

Anyway, I'll do my best to visit you all when I can.  I do have a card to share.  I made this for the Festive Friday challenge going on right now.  It's almost over and as usual I'm linking up last minute. LOL.  :-).  Here's the inspiration....

And here's my card...

I really liked the sled image and so I pulled out a NBUS sled stamp (winter wonderland set by Recollections) and stamped and coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I wanted it to look like it was in a snow bank so I used some texture snow.  Then I stamped my sentiment (Stampabilities) in green.  Layer my panel on some green striped and glittered paper and then attached to my card base.

I'm going to link up to the following challenge as well:

Jingle Belles - use red and green

Well, thats all for now!  Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting.


  1. Your sled card is fabulous; simple, festive, fun. Now about that PUPPY...eeeeeeee!! How adorable is your little Summer - sooooo totally a-dor-a-ble!
