Accordion Sledding Hill

Welcome to a new week, and finally...a card. Surprising, right? It's crazy how quickly I get behind here. Oh well!

Today I have a card with an accordion fold that I made with my Ultimate Crafter's Companion. With the winter months soon upon us, I couldn't help picturing kids sledding down the slope, but found I didn't have the images to complete my card. I began to do a search for the stamps to get the look I wanted (have you ever bought new stamps with a specific project in mind?) I came across the super talented Mel M. M. McCarthy's stamping blog, and noticed a most adorable wintry card. I loved the cute images, and took my chances that they would have the type of sledding stamps I was looking for. Jackpot!
