Frilly and Funkie...

Hi folks...a rather intriguing title for today's post but more about that in a mo...today I'm sharing another DT Project for Inspiration Emporium using the gorgeous Ice Skates and Stacked Snowflakes Dies I found in the Christmas Sale at The Papeterie...now you didn't think I would be tucking them away for 11 months without having a play...did you?
one of my New Year Resolutions is to find more time to make fun stuff and when the crafty work allows join in some challenges so I'm entering this month's Winter Wishes Challenge over at Frilly and Funkie and sharing what I love about winter. I'm a skier not a skater...believe it or not flying down a mountain with 2 big metal planks attached to my feet is my idea of fun whereas sliding along on skinny metal blades seems infinitely more scary with a much harder landing when things go pear shaped so until Mr Holtz comes up with a "Skis" die...I'm taking big liberties with artistic licence on my winter sport theme. And it's ironic with the amount of snow that's fallen on Cairngorm over the last week that the blizzards...gale force winds and high risk of avalanche have kept the ski centre closed and us ski-bods on the wrong side of the snow gates.

I'm having a good old crafty clear out today after a rather busy DIY weekend but I'll tell you all about it tomorrow.
Hugs Kath

What a fabulous card.
I don't "do" anything slippy or slidy (too many memories of broken arms as a child) although I did manage to stay upright on a pair of skates in Nottingham where Torvil & Dean started out.

This is gorgeous Kath! Love the corrugated cardboard background and your skates are wonderful, but I admit, there was some extreme giggling at your story of why skates...hilarious!

What a beautiful card! I love the background and all those snowflakes. Brilliant skates and lacing. I never seem to get the lacing right. Thank you for sharing with us at Frilly and Funkie. Good luck with joining more challenges. That's what I did last year too...

Fabulous, you made the skates look sensational. Love the corrugated cardboard - one of my favorite crafting supplies! Your linen ribbon bow is fantastic - must try that! Glad to have you playing with us over at Frilly and Funkie. Hope you will be a regular!

Hugs,

Love this to bits Kath. Putting the 'frosting' over the ridges on the corrugated ridges is ingenious and I love how aged look of the boots pulls the colour scheme together. Thank you for joining us at Frilly and Funkie. Jenny x
