Sarah Hurley #75 and Craft Us Crazy #32 - Sled

I had a little crafty time so I thought I'd play along in a few new challenges this week.  It's quiet here - my daughter is on break from school and my son is studying for finals so SSSSHHHHHHHHHH!!  I'm good with that - I have a few things of my own I'd like to work on  :)))    I love this vintage sled image and it brought back some memories for me.  Growing up in the Midwest its never hard to find a hill to slide down - often along side a road that has a good pitch to it .  You'll know the place - cars will be parked up and down the street for blocks!

I stamped this one in Versafine Vintage Sepia and left it uncolored so the detail really shows.  I distressed the edges a bit and layered it on to a pretty die cut.  The cherry on top of course is a pretty bow with a few bitty bells  (gotta get those angels wings!!!).
I've entered this one at Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog # 75 "Christmas" and Craft Us Crazy #32 "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like....."  Both are looking for Christmas entries and this one fits the bill :)  Maybe I'll see you there?!!  Have a great day!
