"3-2-1 Challenge" TCPTUES!

Hi blog friends! Hope you all are doing well. We had a bit of a vacation in beautiful Breckenridge CO over the long weekend. My in-laws rented a house and the boys had a great time snowshoeing, cross country skiing and sledding to their heart's content. :) We also went into an ice castle, very cool! I will put some pics at the bottom of the post, so you can see. This mama had a few run ins with my asthma up in the mountains. What can I say but the altitude is not my friend! I wish it was, I only snowshoed for an hour,  and down here in the Denver area, I would have been good to go for quite a bit longer than that, but up around 10,000 feet? Not so much. :( Ah well, such is life. I'm just grateful I am so much more fit than I was a few years ago. Grateful to keep up with my energetic boys and am training for a few different races. Fortunately all of them will be at my "normal" altitude of 5280! Haha! ;)

So Kimberly is our Hostess with the Mostess at The Cat's Pajamas this week. And she is challenging you to a "3-2-1 Challenge." Here's the scoop: Use 3 different patterned papers, 2 different kinds of embellishments, and 1 seam binding, ribbon, or twine. I guess I cheated a bit, since I used two different colors of Divine Twine! Ooopsies! Here's my card, I decided to use my yet-to-be-inked Ski Bunny stamp set. Particularly since we just got back from the mountains. I also used the Holiday Toppers CutUps, and my Circus Panels CutUps.

One of my patterned papers is pieced onto Ski Bun's scarf. It's teeny, but it's there! :) I used the snowflake sparkly sticker, and two glitter gems (two different KINDS of embellies, not only two embellies).

This bunny is beige in color, he looks a little more orange here than he really is.... But on the subject of orange did you hear that the Broncos are join to the Super Bowl?? :)

That's all for me today, winter fun pics are below. thanks for stopping in, and have a GREAT week!
