Hitting the Slopes

So it finally started snowing here on the 27th.  We had a green Christmas and I was getting very ancy for the snow to arrive for 2 reasons: 1) Love having a white Christmas, 2) can't go snowboarding without the snow (can't call yourself, "Snowboarderchic" for nothing!).  I finally got my first run out of the season yesterday (After missing last winter on account of being preggers).  It was just a little hill a few minutes away from home but I was meeting up with a friend and her hubby (who are here from jolly ol' England!) who are rookies at the sport so the small hill was just fine for them right now.  The conditions were not the best but enough to get down the hill without muddying up the board or having to walk down.  The bigger slopes were actually quite icy and the snow blowing around from the snow making machines made it tricky to see but I won't complain.  I got to go out and have fun with good friends.  Perfect.  Today it continued to snow and I'm dreaming of hitting the slopes again tomorrow...trying to convince my hubby (the skiier) to leave the kidlets with the grandparents and head to higher ground.  Don't think it's working.  Wahhhhh!  I really wish my 7 year old was up for snowboarding fun.  She's got the excitement and enthusiasm but no skill...yet.  I'm going to have to work on that for sure!
This week's Simon Says Stamp challenge is "Anything Goes".  Perfect!  I've got a couple projects to hopefully win me some smiles.  My middle daughter has a thing for penguins.  When we were in Disney last year she added to her collection and my oldest daughter decided to draw a picture of all of them.  She was 5 at the time of the drawing.  So cute!  The 3 penguins names are Peachi, Leechi and Chichi.
The next entry is a card a made just because I LOVE the stamp so much.  It's by Whimsy Stamps and it's so beautiful and dreamy!
