Ricky Ticky Timbo

My brother proudly serves in the US Air Force and was stationed in Alaska several years ago. I had the pleasure of visiting him a few times while he was there. He wanted to make sure that I had a full Alaskan experience! :) Part of that experience was climbing up a steep hill... very slowly and sledding down the hill... very quickly! 

Rick is a slim and trim soldier, I on the other hand .... enjoy my mashed potatoes! :) (let's just leave it at that!) So adding brilliant idea to brilliant idea, he decides that I need to squeeze into a pair of HIS thermals before heading out into the Alaskan snow! I can't even begin to describe the laughter that just trying to get into his long johns caused... and our adventure had only just begun. When I was all stuffed into the appropriate clothing, I resembled the Michelin Man or Randy, the little brother in the Christmas Story! When we finally arrived at the perfect hill for sledding, Rick dragged me up slowly, freezing, laughing, and complaining the entire time! We FINALLY reached the top and were ready to head down. Rick sat down on the front of the sled and told me to sit down behind him with my legs around him.... As soon I got my hiney to the ground ...we went flying down the hill! I screamed and giggled and screamed some more... and he knows one little extra secret about that long ride down the hill! :) 

Rick always knows how to make me smile! I love you little brother!

This is a Magnolia stamp called, "Edwin on Sled." I colored him up with my Copic markers and used a Cuttlebug embossing folder, Spellbinder Nestabilities and Martha Stewart punch to decorate the other parts of the card.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
