Gone Fishing...


Happy New Year to all! It is so cold here. We are taking -14. Not fun. Yesterday my husband took our kids and their friends out and pulled them on GT's behind his fourwheeler..they had a blast! Today we were going to do it all over again...but it's just too cold!
This card I made for my nephew who has a birthday coming up in February! I loved this image when I saw it and thought it would be perfect for him!
Stay warm and cozy in your homes today. We are off to hockey...got to love Canada! Speaking of hockey..did you watch that exciting Junior Hockey Game on New Years! Canada vs US...Wow..Fantastic hockey. The Us Team gave us some great hockey! We will probaly meet in the finals!

Good morning Christine. You're not kidding about the cold. Keith just called me and said it's -18*C without the windchill. That's just too cold to do much of anything. Sounds like yesterday was a blast for you guys though!

This is adorable and your nephew will love it. Love the image and the color choices!

Danielle said...

Stunning card Christine - your colour palette is fantastic for this image! Gorgeous colouring as always and once again, you choose the most perfect embellishments and layout!
Stay warm - it's pretty chilly here too (-24 with the wind chill) - brrrr!!
Hugs, Danielle
