I'd rather be skiing!! -TMS #336

*** Click HERE to visit my blogversary + giveaway post!!! ***

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  I've got a card today that could not have been more perfectly timed.  Take a look, then I'll explain.

Our family loves to ski!  We are not experts by any stretch of the imagination, but we love it. [In the spirit of total truthfulness... my son does not ski... he snowboards.;) ]  Sadly, last year, even with all the snow we received, it never worked in our schedule to go skiing.  Soooo sad!!!  
But... our wonderful church family gave my husband and me a get-away of 3 days at Smuggler's Notch in VT and we were scheduled to head over there today!We were scheduled to go today....  until a stomach virus and severe sinus issues hit our home.  So... not today!  :(  Hoping and planning for next week.  We're looking forward to time away {just the two of us} and to hitting the slopes!

Here's our wonderful sketch by Melissa...  another of our favorites from 2015... this week it is my choice...  *I LOVE this sketch!  Since it debuted last March, I have used it many, many times!!

My DP is Recollections Cozy Lodge and my image is FTHS Rather Be Skiing Snowman.  He is colored with my Spectrum Noir markers (DR7, OR2, EB7, EB2, GG1, GG2, BT1).
He was cut out with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and inked with TH antique linen.  The snowflake is one of Sweet 'n Sassy's Small Snowflakes dies.  Brown hemp bow finishes it off.

I am sponsoring this week with a snowman stamp set, soooooo... we'd love you to make your card a winter theme, too, if you'd like.  :)    Play along to win this Hampton Art "Let It Snow" stamp and die set!

I love your card. Snowmen are my favorite winter image and this one is so darn cute. The burgundy is an awesome color to use and your bow is so pretty and sweet. Thanks for joining us at Craft-Dee BowZ for our January challenge! Hugs, Gail

How very sweet! I'm not a skier, but I love to snowshoe. Just being out in the snow is lovely! Wonderful card, I love the snowflake!

Your love of snow is showing again. {grin} Cute card. I'd love to see a snowman ski and there's probably a few skiing in the northeast. Great card and a neat sketch. Thanks for the inspiration.
