Sleigh ride

It's hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner as we start the first of October.  To me as I'm getting older the snow and winter is prettier on the cards than in person.  I guess it's a sign of old age when we no longer want to drive in the snow for the fear of possible car damage and rising insurance cost where in our youth we were exciting to get out in the snow and do winter activities.  Now the thought of putting on more layers is just exhausting in itself.  My card I made for Freshly Made Sketches and used a digital image from TLC, Create.

  1. Gosh, Lisa Lynn, this is such a pretty card! Love the beautiful blue paper, the cool die cut, and your image!
    I'm with you--no more snow! I haven't lived in it for 33 years now. I had enough of it during the first 30 years of my life. LOL! :^)
    Hugs, Penny
