Ice Skates for Christmas

Close to our house, there is a really nice ice skating rink that the parks department sets up in winter and runs through late February. You can buy hot cocoa and other delectable warm treats while you are there. It's been decades since I put on a pair of ice skates, and I think I'll leave it that way. ;-)
I like my feet on solid ground!

This is as close to putting on a pair of ice skates as I'll get:  the stamped version, on paper.

I used some already-stamped pieces that I found in a Stampin' Up! bag of scraps, which my demonstrator has from time to time. (love those!) I used bits and pieces of die cuts, punches, ribbons and trim to round out each design.

merry & bright sentiment: Papertrey Ink 'Tag-Its #8 Mini' 

Thanks so much for coming by here today!  God bless you!

Masculine New Home cards

Hello there!  Last year, I made two 'New Home' cards for gentlemen who were each moving into their own places.  As always, designing masculine cards is a challenge for me.

Here they are, and I'm personally favoring the first one...

house stamp:  Papertrey Ink 'Spring Hills'; background stamp:  Stampin' Up! 'French Script'; copper circle clip, jute braided ribbon, cork patterned paper, note card die cut - Colorbok 'Flea Market'

house stamp:  Stampin' Up! 'Holiday Home'; sentiment stamp: Flourishes 'Garden Fresh'; stitched rectangle die:  L'il Inkers 'Stitched Rectangles'

The Type B Flu made it to our house last week.  My youngest daughter missed an entire week of school, and she still didn't feel quite right this week, and missed two more days of school (ugh).  I'm getting over a bad cold, and am on my second round of antibiotics.  Man, the germs are really going around everywhere right now! 

Hope you're healthy and feeling good!  Thanks for your visit today. :-)
