Here in the PNW we are trying, like the rest of the country, to keep warm! I did tear myself away from the wood stove this afternoon to make another attempt at a floating easel card using my E.  ( I just LOVE this design by Karen B. at Sizzix but don't have the necessary dies to create a card the 'official' way!)

I had in mind this week's challenge at Cardz TV and the cold, cold, weather reminded me of a time long ago when we lived in Northern Alberta.  In winter, the Fire Dept. constructed a skating rink on a vacant lot close to our house and flooded it.  Every day after school it was filled with children practicing figure skating, playing skate tag, and having a glorious time.  Later, the ice hockey players would take over the rink and we'd hear the thud of the puck hitting the boards until late at night. 

This ice skater cut from Winter Woodland is a favorite of mine. Her dress is a scrap of my precious Theresa Collins paper flocked to resemble the furry outfits of the little girls in their 'tippy toe' skates.  I flocked and sparkled the tree too. 

I am HOPING Santa brings me a lightbox this year so that I can get some reasonable pictures of my stuff!  So, once again, my apologies for the quality of the photos.  I could NOT get a picture that didn't show the snowflake lines!  You can hardly see them in real life.   Aghhh!  Thanks for visiting with me today.  Stay warm!  : ) Christine

Flying Witch Easel Card

Have you seen the wonderful 'Floating Easel' cards that are popping up on Pinterest lately?  I was sure there was a way to make one using a cut from one of the gazillion Cricut cartridges I own and here it is!

I used a card cut from French Manor for the base and folded it into the traditional easel card.  I added the frame cut from the same key and secured the witch with fishing line stolen from DH.
I also used the Monster Bash, Chic and Scary, and Paper Trimmings cartridges and now you know why it is SO important to have a gazillion cartridges!  LOL!

It was difficult to photograph the card since I kept getting so many confusing shadows.  But, it did look amazingly spooky!  Thanks for visiting today!  : ) Christine
