Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Have you been enjoying all the Christmas in July cards lately? Lots of good ideas! I haven't been ice skating in a loooong time. Right about now, you're thinking...wait a Texas? I know, I know. But later I lived in Houston and there is an ice skating rink (or was, I don't know anymore) in the Galleria there. It was a pretty big deal when it opened in the winter. It's not like I had my own pair of skates or anything. But it was fun. 

This ice skates image is such a pretty one. On winter cards, I always look for ways to use it because I like it so much. And I think with the iced over pond in this new image, they fit perfectly. I added some tops of pine trees in front of it so it would look like you're seeing it through a window. And one of my favorite things...a pink winter sky. A few snowflakes, some sparkly stickles and the fun greeting finish it all. The card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
