Have an "ice" day!

Happy 1st Day of Winter everyone!  I am not a Winter person.  I think when outgrow snow pants, Winter wears off a bit but my children love it, especially my son because of all the activities.  He's a hockey, snowman, fort building kinda kid.  
As part of my Christmas Scraps series I wanted to make these 2 cards.  I had enough in my scraps to make 2 and use up all of that paper!
I chose to make a shape card using Elegant Edges and Cricut Craft Room to weld them together.  This card was so cute to make and I used some bakers twine to really make it look like a pair of figure skates.
What is your favorite activity?

  1. The skates are perfect for winter. I do not like the cold either...that is why my parents moved to Florida many years ago (I think my dad hated shoveling snow.)! Love the twine used as laces.

    Stay Creative,
