It's Merry Monday time again.
Thank you all for joining in wishing LeAnne a
Happy Birthday last week.
This week the uber talented Nina chose our challenge.
I love this image and I had found a die on sale at
Archiver's when they were closing up.
Who could pass up 75% off?
Crafty time is as rare as hens' teeth around here lately.
It took 4 days to get this all together!
I die cut the skates from a snippet of white and a snippet of silver foil.
After cutting off some of the silver, and the blades from the white,
I adhered them together then lightly sponged around the
edges with Sahara Sand and colored the heel with a marker.
I used my paper piercer to poke the holes and threaded up
some DMC white embroidery floss and "laced" them up.
The DSP was a snippet left from a piece a friend gave me.
I have no idea of the maker.
I used the Stitched Mats Rectangles dies for all the layers
and used a snippet of that retired Sage Shadow for the middle layer.
I stamped the banner from the retired
Take it to Heart set
with the sentiment from
More Merry Messages.
With all those snippets,
I'm going over to
Thanks for stopping by.
