It's All Downhill

I told you all I loved the sketch that Anne-Marije provided this week for the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog. I had ideas for multiple cards on this one, and of course, my HUGE collection of Winter Cuties from the Phindy's Place Store is only adding fuel to the creative fires.

Our family's idea of a vacation is a trip to Colorado in February for a week of snow skiing. Last year, our grandson turned 3, and so he took his first ski lessons. Needless to say, this image called Big Hill reminded me of MonkeyMoo on the baby hill. She's colored with Copics. The DP is from Create with TLC's Christmas selection. I used my snowflake embossing folders to make my snowball hill. I knew the sentiment I wanted to use, so I went to Photoshop elements to create it. Finally I used my MTC software and my Cricut to cut the mittens out.
I'm already looking forward to February and MonkeyMoos season number 2. Hopefully this
year, he'll actually make it up on the mountain and off the baby hill.
Glad to see you stopping in.
