More Crafty Stuff


Happy Wednesday, peeps!  I promised a couple more crafty things to show you!  My sweet friend Linda L. made me a bunch of these wonderful ice skate diecuts, and I couldn’t wait to use them!  They were a little bigger than I anticipated, almost too big for a card, but I found these cool burlap-covered stretcher bars at a local store, about 6x9”, and they were perfect for my wintry scene!


I was thrilled that I had everything already in my craft stash to make this!  The bells were a snag from last year’s sale at a craft store; the greenery was in my bin, and the ribbon was from Cassidy’s birthday party!  I stamped the banner in Real Red, added some shading and rhinestones, then put it all together.   The skate blades were painted with Platinum shimmer paint from SU (ret) and I colored the heel with a marker! 


And here are a few more Advent cubbies:


Enjoying some Grammy time, watching a movie!

Enjoy your day!

Love the twine laces on the skates! Great project. Such a precious picture of your snuggle time. I sometimes still manage to get my teens to snuggle for bit :)

Oh how sweet! You two look so warm and cozy.
The skates look great on your wintry scene! They are kinda big. I know there is a smaller one but I don't have that one…yet. LOL
Stay warm!
