Simply Scrapping and Crafts Card Challenge March 30th

A bit late posting Wednesday's card for the Simply Scrapping Crafts weekly challenge ( here_) Clare has decided the challenge is "Anything Goes" but you can only enter this into this challenge.... no combining.    Now that doesn't count for me... as  a DT member we are not eligible for the prizes..so this card I've entered into Hero Arts Monthly challenge and Wee Memories weekly challenge.  So here it is....
I started by stamping the three Peeking Posies stamps onto white card.  It took a few times to get them right and then I saw there were smudge marks under them.... so decided to colour them in and cut them out and layer onto another card.... only to get the sentiment crooked!!!!  I used Distress Inks and an aqua pen to colour them in.  The background was smooched onto the acrylic block and heavily spritzed with water and brushed on.  Less water used on the other colours.    So a good save in the end.  

Would love to have you join me over at SSC.  It's free to join and there are lots of different groups to indulge your passion for paper crafting.  

Tonight I am feeling a tad pooped.... because I went skiing this afternoon.... Yeap skiing!!!!   Here at Snow Planet  It is NZ's only indoor snowdome.  We had a Grab a Deal.  $38 for entry, ski rental and a drink at the bar... so 5 of us from work took the afternoon off and had a ball.  My back was a little sore, but some painkillers fixed that... I really enjoyed about 2 1/2 hours of skiing.  I haven't been for a few years so it was pleasing to see I still managed to stay upright.... only 2 little spills.  Will have to do this again some time.  

Lots to do this weekend so off to catch up with some blogs and commenting on some wonderful creations out there in cyberspace.  Take care and enjoy the weekend.

I love those Peeking Posies, I have my eye on them! You did a great job with the colouring, they are so pretty! Skiing ! Wow! I went for the first time during our Spring Break and although I enjoyed it (as much as one can with a 5 year old in tow), I would really like to try some Nordic/Cross-country skiing!
