This is the card I made for this week's Featured Stamper Challenge! This week's Featured Stamper is Willow01. It was fun spending time in your gallery, Charlene! Congrats on being chosen this week! I was inspired by her cute (out for publication) card found here.
This is my story!
1. I needed to make a birthday card for a fellow SCSer, for ConnieJo9. I wanted to make a card with a scene and when I saw Charlene's card it inspired me to make a similar one in a winter theme!
2. I started calling ConnieJo9, ConAir, because we had a teaparty in the mountains of Colorado with Shawn White and Connie took to snowboarding like nobody's business!
3. Ever since that teaparty, she has been getting big air! She is very extreme...especially if she has her head gear on! Snort!
Congrats Charlene. Your gallery rocks!
Happy Birthday ConAir!

Fun card Cindy! Love the humor - this is great for Connie Jo. This is perfect given all the snow we have had around the country (we even had it in Central Alabama this week - now I think it is around 60 degrees outside). I have to ask though, wouldn't the wind on the board blow out the candles? Well if it did, then Connie Jo wouldn't have to blow them out so that would be ok.

I heard there was quite a ruckus in the FS gallery today. Someone yelled, "Watch out! Da Mudder is in the FS gallery today and is arriving on her snowboard!" Well, no matter how you got here, my friend, it sure is good to see you and your cute card for ConnieJo! I love the depth you achieved with your snowy hills and your fun placement of the candles. Cute, cute, cute!

I just know those candles are the kind you can't blow out!.....plus CJ9 would be going sooo slow on that board to cause any wind anyway. hehe. OH MY WORD, Cindy, you goofball, you have done it again. Made one heck of a card surely to get smiles and chuckles from all. Can't wait to see what my ole Sis has to say. hehe I love your trees, love your candles and love the snow hills. They look like "bunny" hills. Good thing, Sis is a little weak in the knees.....again hehe. OTT Wonderful card here. TFS :0)

Well, sis is here in the gallery!!! I am not sure where to begin....I go so slow the candles won't blow out or the so many candles and not enough board!!! It is a really good thing that my memory is not what it used to be by the time I find a way to make a card to get even, I will forget who it is for!!! The only thing that makes feel like I am not ready for the home yet is that I still remember that I don't remember what I remembered....its is really bad when you don't remember that you can't remember what you were going to remember. I know this will never make a quote but somehow it helps ME!!! Cindy, you are such a nut and I am so happy first that you made me one of your awesome cards and second that it had to do with one of my favorite Teapot card's on snowboarding in which you gave me the name Con Air!! I hope someday that all of your stories are put in a book so someone can read them to me in the home.....I am sure Annie Jo Ryan would read them to me for a small (?) amount of money!!! Thank you so much for thinking of me!!
