Doesn't she look like she's having fun. My friend Nancy asked me the other day if I had ever been ice skating. Since I live in the deep south, that's a pretty legitimate question and most of you would assume the answer is no. However, the answer is yes. My first time was in New Orleans on a field trip in school (Geez that was a long time ago!). One of the malls had a small indoor rink.
Now this might sound crazy to those of you up north who view hockey as the big local sport, but we actually have a hockey team on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The Mississippi Surge is part of the Southern Professional Hockey League and they are pretty popular with the local sports fans. Now I said all that to say that I have managed to find myself on the ice a couple of times on their rink when they have free skate time. It's been a while, but I can honestly say that I have donned ice skates and most likely it was 70 or 80 degrees outside. LOL
I have been slowly adding to my collection of Tiddly Ink Wryn's. I just love this character. This is Skater Wryn and I have given her some cool winter colors to practice her moves in. The felt tree was cut with a Sizzix die and then trimmed down to fit the card better. I just picked these cute Studio Calico birdies up at Hobby Lobby recently and thought they'd be really sweet on the tree. I thought the tree needed a little something else and I happened to have cut a Memory Box die out that I didn't use. When I looked at the little snowflakes I thought they'd be great decorations so I snipped them off and added them to the tree.
