Skates

Happy Friday!
It may not be snow time quite yet, but I can only hope we'll have an actual winter this year. Last year, we kind of skipped from fall right over to spring before being slapped by that early blast furnace called summer. Hard to believe, but it's actually been much cooler in August than it was in June. What's up with that??

Along with this terrific ice skates and sentiment, I'm also showing you a sneak peek of a fabulous new Argyle border w/ a coordinating solid diamond to fill in the blanks. How cool is that? I stamped the argyle across the bottom and then the diamond, first in lt blue then in pale pink. I used a snowflake embossing folder on the top section then attached my skates w/ a double die cut frame. Argyle is my fave sock so I'm wondering if I can stamp this on my plain socks to dress them up. Life's too short to wear blah socks. Y'all would laugh if you saw some of the ones in my sock drawer. There's seasonal...Christmas, fall, St. Patrick's, Patriotic...really bright neon colors...and some w/ tropical birds and palm trees. I think there's even a pair of zodiac socks along w/ a jillion pair of argyles. I even took up knitting to see if I could knit a pair of argyles. Still checking on it. Turns out it's way more complicated than I thought.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Y'all have a terrific weekend!
