A trip to the ice rink....

I needed another Birthday card for someone special this month. So what is more fun then to bring Tilda out to play! I must tell you, other then hockey one of my favourite sports is figure skating. When I was a kid I just loved to skate....the only thing I did not like was when you got to the pond having to tie up your skates in the cold.
When I was at Scrapfest this fall I found these adorable little stamps from Dear Izzy. In the stamp set it included these adorable little skates. I had to have those. I attached a piece of string to make it look like her laces.

I just love finishing the inside of my cards if time permits. I had just bought this newly released snowman stamp from Great Impressions stamps and thought he would be just perfect for the inside!


I want to wish those celebrating today...Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank-you so much for popping in for a visit, I appreciate your visits sooo much!

  7. This is gorgeous Christine and I just love the skates stamp! I'm a figure skating fan too! Me and a friend travelled to the USA in 1992 to the World Championships and I've been to numerous shows in the UK too. Kurt Browning was my favourite skater at that time but I'm a bit out of touch with it now.
