I love to think of nature
as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Snowboardin' Celebration











 


Happy Saturday!  Wow, it's been a whole week since I posted anything and that long since I did any crafting.  The new year is proving to be a tad bit too busy!  Anyway, I am late posting this for the CPS challenge tonight, but I am submitting it anyway.  Took me a bit to get my bearings after a week away from the crafting table.  And, when I finished with this card, I realized I used the same colors as the last card I posted!  Oh well, everything just fell into place tonight so that's OK.

Again, I needed a masculine card.  I am beginning to think there are too many men in my family!  hahaha  I AM joking!  The snowboard digital stamp was great and I kept thinking of what else to do for a male teen birthday card and I was looking at birthday stamps and BAM!  Icing is like snow......so why not have the snowboarder 'snowboard' over the frosting of a cupcake.  So, I printed the cupcake on four different colors of cardstock, then pieced it all together and coordinated them with some of the paper strips behind the images.

Stamps:  Happy Birthday, Inkadinkadoo; Snowboarder digital stamp from Bird's Cards; cupcake digital stamp, Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.
Paper:  DP, Making Memories 'Just Chillin'; orange textured cardstock, Bazzill; chocolate, light blue and white cardstock.
Ink:  Staz On Timber Brown
Extras:  Number punches; turquoise star brads; orange brads; oval metal frame.

I have LOADS of cards to do in the next few days as I did not get my Christmas cards finished and so they are becoming New Year's/Winter Blessings/Valentine cards.  There is always a way to improvise.

More to come...
