Christmas cards for my little skaters

Opa and I watched Brooke and Sierra take skating lessons a little while ago.  Here is Brooke:

And here is Sierra:

The picture quality is not that good as I had to take it behind the plexiglass.

Here are the cards I made for them which will be mailed out to them tomorrow.

Brooke's card:

Sierra's card:


The image is Ellie loves to skate from Your Next Stamp - a Canadian company from Kitchener.
I coloured the image with my Prisma coloured pencils and then popped it up on a round scallop nestibility that I cut and embossed with my Cuttlebug.  I stamped the snow flakes with Versamark and then heat embossed them with embossing powder that I added some glitter to.  I also added some light blue rhinestones to the centres.  I added some glitter to the hat, coat and hand muffs using my Martha Stewart glue pen and fine white glitter.  I   hope the girls will like their cards.  I still have to make a card for their baby sister Amber and also a Birthday card for their father whose birthday it is today.  

Thanks for stopping by!

What cute cards! Your grandchildren will love getting them. I see from your blog that we are similar in age and like the same things...sewing, cross-stitch, and cardmaking. Too bad we are MILES apart! I'm in
Thanks for playing along with YNS. Linda C

What fun Ice skating could have been for me if I only learned, I am certain I would have been destined for great things...actually I am as graceful as a duck with two peg legs LOL! Your cards are so fun I am sure the girls will love them as mush as I do probably more because they are from you! Thanks for playing along with the YNS CAS Challenge & have a fantastic Sunday!
