Welcome to my blog. Weather report in Michigan: Snow, snow, snow, ice, ice, ice - cold, cold, cold - need I say more?
Suggestion for today: stay inside and craft, stay inside and craft, stay inside and craft. Housecleaning can wait until tomorrow (if tomorrow ever arrives) - get the picture?
One of my card making goals for this year is to make at least one or more cards for Christmas each week. This card reminds me of my youth, when I used to go to the outside skating rink close to where my, now deceased, grandparents lived. It was a fun adventure for me.
I will probably send this card to my cousin this Christmas since she grew-up in our grandparents home. It will bring back memories of Ballenger Park Skating rink, in which we all enjoyed.
I hope you have an awesome day! It truly is a day the Lord has made - rejoice and be glad in it! Thank you for stopping by.
