BBTB2/Ice Skates

Ballerina On Ice
Hello my dear followers. Happy New Year. I hope that each of you have a most wonderful 2012, a happy and healthy, safe and delightful 2012.

Heather has decided to step down as leader of Bitten By The Bug2. As you may know, Heather is a new proud grandmother and she will be taking care of her sweet new grandson, Blake. She has entrusted Donna Mundinger and I to take a sharing leadership of the blog. Donna and I are very excited. We believe that BBTB2 is a respected design team and we hope that we can inspire you to check in with our blog each week to see the wonderful cards from the design team members. Stay tuned because we are going to be doing a design team call in January.

Krista is our sweet hostess this week. She asked us to design with some ice skates. There are skates on many of the cartridges like Joys Of The Season, Christmas (Solutions), Celebrate With Flourish, Nifty Fifties....and quite a few others. For my skate cut, I selected Christmas (Solutions) and I just had to add the silhouette of the dancing skater from Winter Woodland (page 50). I added an embossed scalloped circle to mount the pair of skates upon, and I gave each skate a pretty blue ribbon that matches the ribbon on the skater. The snowflakes are MS punches. The dancer appears to be skating in front of a pretty window frame which is cut from Christmas (Solutions). And of course everything got a dose of embossing.

Thanks for looking... If you have come here from BBTB2 you will no doubt be inspired to make your own skate card.

This is how I dreamed I would look when I was a little girl. Unfortunately I was more of a jumper than a spinner, LOL. Your card is just magical. I love everything about it. So glad to have you back as my partner. xxD
