Snow skiing...did I ever tell you the story about...

I went snow skiing. Once. I went to Powder Ridge Ski Resort in Connecticut in January 1974 and broke my left tibia and fibula in a spiral fracture my first time down the mountain as soon as I got off the ski lift. No lie, and I've got one leg 1/2" shorter than the other due to that injury. Yep, so when I think of snow skiing I think of sitting in a lodge in front of a fireplace with a drink in one hand looking cute in neat looking boots with fur inside them, a cute sweater and black legging pants and watching the flames flicker. But when I saw this very cute Sassy Cheryl image, I couldn't resist him so he's my card for this month at Craft-Dee BowZ Challenge Blog where today is my Tuesday to post my creation! And no, I don't ever imagine it's me flying down the mountain.
I had fun making this cared and using white paint, glitter and my new winter tree and branch die cuts. I colored my image with Copics.
And my bow is like icing on the cake. This ribbon was the perfect color to use for this card and using my bow tool guaranteed me a perfect bow. I made a double loop bow and it was so easy to do and is an awesome embellishment for this card!
Our sponsor this month is the wonderful Beccy's PlaceBeccy's Place will provide the winner of the challenge with their choice of one set of digital stamps. Yes, that's correct, a whole set!!

Gail, what a darling card and I just love your story. I have never skiied and your story is the exact reason why. I have always been afraid I would break a leg. So I too will be sitting in the lodge beside the fire having a drink or two.
