bittenbythebug2 iceskate challenge

happy monday! and happy new year lets hope this is a good one for us all .

this week over at BBTB2 our beautiful and sweetest gal krista has chosen our challenge to be the ice skate cut from winterwoodland. well duh me when i made the cut i inadvertently used my joys of the season cart instead.they are very very similiar cuts. if you dont own the cart any ice skate from another cart will do just have fun and be sure to share with us! also please make sure your card or project is new , no back linking :)  if you havent yet, be sure to see what fabuloustastic creations the rest of the dt has made . another week of wowness from them .
                                                                     heres my card 

for the ice skater i used winter woodland. remember my duh moment i mentioned.. i actually cut the skater out before the skates..why did i change cartridges? the ice skates are on the page under the skater. i was looking right at them!  my dopey moments are occurring rather closely together lately. uh oh. ;) ill blame the reason on the season ;)

i used a bit of colorbox fluid chalk on this and just drew on the lines for the laces. was gonna add on some mini pom poms but cant find what i did with them. no doubt the minute i finish writing up the blog here theyll reappear. oh well pretend they are on there.. or not ;)
i used foam stickies under the skates. i ALWAYS know where my beloved foamies are :)

                                         i used the shadow/blackout (s) for the skater chick.
                                                    and computer generated the saying.
a big thanks for hanging out with me today hope your week is off to a fantastic start. i seriously appreciate your comments :) have a super fun rest of day or night :) xxxshelly

Gorgeous card, Shelly. Your story made me laugh. Just to make you feel better you should know I have lots of duh moments, too. It can't be that we're getting older! Wishing you nothing but the best for the new year.
