Skating Saturday

It might be the 3 of December, and I look pretty good on my Christmas goodies to purchase, but I am way behind on my cards, cookies/baking and decorating. I decorate the tree like I imagined I would. I didn't even look to see if I have enough flour and sugar to start baking. I did however pull all my Christmas stamps out and look at them so I could begin the task.

I fell in love with the idea of ice skates. In my little world, I someday be able to skate without issue, however I know the hard truth .... its not likely to ever happen. Its my handicap! I do admit it!

 I used the polkadot and the Northern Flurry embossing folder for the backgrounds. I sprayed some Vanilla Smooch Spritz on the Northern  Flurry and skates.

I punched the skate blades out with half the Word Window punch, I used part of the Snowflake punch for the connectors on the blade. The Stocking punch in Crumb cake for the bottom of the skate and then the skate itself. I pierced the area where you tie up the laces.

I love that you used the stocking punch to make a pair of skates! Great idea to make real laces too. You can't go wrong with a Pink color combo either.
