The Heart Desires #6 , Virginia's View #25 and IBATLT #32

If I go on a card making spree, I usually line up my finished cards in chronological order by due date and sometimes I have to put sticky notes on them with the challenge they're for and what that due date is.  If I'm not careful, I miss a deadline and I'm coming close to the wire now so I'm posting two cards.

This first one is for The Heart Desires.
The plaid is something that has been in my stash forever.  I just happened upon the cut frame in a pile of leftovers and thought it worked well to show off my PTI snowshoes.  How to add a sentiment was tricky but my NBUS Holiday Snippets from PB was the perfect answer.  Here is the inspiration photo.
The plaid makes this eligible for Virginia's View so I'm sending it there also.
My second card is for Inspired By All the Little Things and their inspiration photo.

Wouldn't you know I made a card with skis just last week that you can see here.  I decided to give an entirely different feel to this one.
It's a little more rustic with the inked edges, darker greens and twine bow.  The ski panel is embossed with houndstooth and popped up beside the sentiment stamp from SSS.

It promises to be a beautiful day here in mid-Michigan so I may have to forego any crafting and enjoy the out-of-doors.  I hope it's a lovely day where you are.
