LOVE the hanging skates image… LOL, I have fond memories of ice skating while growing up in Michigan… tried it again a few years ago and I realize now why I always had very strong legs… the operative is HAD… wow, what a work out!silver dazzle pen and marker colored holly leaves

Skates, holly image and words were embossed using a versamark pad and silver embossing powder…. and the ribbons and skate blades were colored in using the new silver Stampin’ Dazzle Marker… which is really cool and doesn’t have a foul odor like paint pens do!silver glimmer paper die cut snowflake

This giant silver glimmer paper snowflake was die cut using the big shot die cutting machine and new Snow Flurry Bigz Die.  Love the three snowflakes on this new die.. YOU can view them on page 14 of the new mini catalog!

Wow! Cool card and stamp set! I love it! And love the colors! And, yes, it reminds me, also, of my childhood in Massachusetts. I lived across the street from a pond and we lived on it in the winter and in it in the summer!!!
