No balls allowed

Morning all. 
My September is almost at an end and the countdown to shorter days is growing apace.
As it's Tuesday it also means another new challenge at Cardz4Guyz. This week we would like to see your designs with a theme of -


In other words, no football or cricket etc., but we welcome winter sports, motor sport, sailing etc..

Now I don't really have anything male orientated sport without balls so I had to think hard but then remembered this stamp by LOTV of a little boy skiing so here it is.

I kept the pallette quite clean and crisp to reflect the snow theme using some LOTV papers as well as their little skier and his buddy. Last time I used this stamp I cut the little dog off but decided to leave it in this time. As usual I used Copics to colour the image, the white panel was embossed using a Cuttlebug - Snow embossing folder to give extra dimension.

I made this with a few challenges in mind including:-
LOTV - Pretty Papers (Frosty Christmas)
Christmas Stampin' All year long - AG/non traditional colours
Sweet Stampin' - Cards for Men
Addicted to Stamps - White and one other colour
STAMPlorations - Stamps and Markers
Merry Monday - Polka dots and/or stripes
OK, so why not pop over to the main site meet a couple of new faces and see what the rest of the DT have been up to, then join us.
Bye for now. :)
