Skating Snowman

I have never ever skated a day in my life... ICE SKATING SCARES ME... why? I fell and broke my wrist when I was in 3rd grade while I was a birthday roller skating party... though I haven't totally overcome this action.. ICE JUST FREAKS ME OUT!    What is worse, is being someone who is an avid ice skater.. I guess when you grow up in Michigan and this is an activity EVERYONE does, you just do it... well, it looks like I have to TRY THIS, or not only do I have to hear all the name calling from HIM, but from the TEENS TOO!  

I thought it would be cool to make a snowman ice skating, maybe he will also go on a scrapbooking page (depends if I get to take pictures or not).

This could be that last item I am able to showcase, if I am in a cast, sling, etc- due to my wonderful athletic ability!   Stay warm!

Good luck with ice skating. I used to do it as a child and hadn't been on skates for over 30 years. (am now 60 something) Wibbled and wobbled for the first few minutes with the help of a baby stroller and then all of a sudden I remembered how it was done. Only fell once and that was in a big snowbank. (skating on a controlled path on a lake). Your card is soooo cute.

Adorable card! Where in Michigan? I'm right there with you...I DISLIKE ICE OH SO VERY MUCH! I grew up in Iowa & got ice skates for Christmas in Jr. High. Worst gift idea E V E R!
