Mojo Monday #248
Retro Sketch #21

Back from the Snow

Hi there

I have been away for the last week at the Perisher ski fields in New South Wales.  We met our Godson and his family in Jindabyne and the 5 males spent the week skiing.  For the most part, the weather was fabulous for them.  I don't ski any more due to my arthritis and I was never particularly good at it when I could.  However, it was lovely to relax in front of an open fire every night and chat and look at the photos and videos they had taken during the day.  On the last day I went up the Kosciuszko Express chair lift at Thredbo as a foot passenger to have lunch at the Eagles Nest restaurant. It was a beautiful blue sky day, but it was very, very chilly on the chair lift! This is a photo of me rugged up in the snow outside the restaurant. At the top right you can see a snow bunny that someone made in the snow.

I did take a few stamps to colour and some punches to make a few flowers.  I had already cut the main elements to make this card using the Mojo Monday #249 sketch, so I took them with me and then coloured the image and put it together.  I really like the simplicity of this sketch:

This was definitely a 'limited supplies' challenge as well, as I had to make do with the few bits I had with me, so it is very simple.

I like the sweet little image mounted on the pink panel, Judy, and the tiny flowers are a lovely touch. Cute!
