Things I miss...

I really long for real winters here in Ireland. Proper snow and all. Last winter we had what I would call a little bit of snow and the whole country almost came to halt, lol

This card combines two challenges - STAMPIN' FOR THE WEEKEND\: Winter Projects and PHINDY'S CHALLENGE\: The Sketch.

I really love that lil' kid from Phindy's Winter Cuties. I was about the same age waddling around on the skis. Not that I was ever much good at it :)

The colouring is pure Copics with the exception of the chalk on background. Real fast and easy way to create a soft backdrop for the image.

The sentiment stamp is from Whimsy Winter Seals. Real mad about them, so versatile.

The papers are new Basic Grey Marjolaine pad. funny, first I got them I wasn't taken with them at all but once you combine the papers the patterns just SING together. I can see it becoming one of my go-to pads.

COPIC COLOURS:
PANYTS< HAT< SCARF: BG78/75/72/11/10, T7/5/3
Jumper: YG:13/25/21/20/91, T5/3/1/1
Boots: E79/37/35/33, T7/5/3/1
Skin: E11/00/000

I would like to enter these challenges:
Freshly Brewed - show off your style
Stampin' Royalty - patterned paper 
A Spoonful Of Sugar - distressing
Tuesday Throwdown - buttons and bows
Gingerloft (2 weeks) - great outdoors
Bee Crafty (2 weeks) - DIGI STAMP and christmas 
Crazy 4 Challenges - christmas
Marks Finest Paper - snowflake
Secret Crafter - sparkle and shine

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs

Good morning Annika, what a lovely card. That image reminds me of my daughter (now 17) at that age when we went skiing. Love it! I'm sure it's cold in Ireland now, but so it is here in Holland. Love your country though, been there now 3 times on holiday, sooo beautiful!
