♥ Let's Craft & create ~ Let's get ready for Christmas ♥


Let's get ready for Christmas is our theme this fortnight over at Let's Craft and Create , so i'm sure everyone is busy getting Christmas cards made, Christmas cakes baked, maybe even knitting some winter woollies :)
Why not join in with us, we would love to see all your talents, and there is a lovely prize for someone too
I made these ice skate boots using a Sizzix die, cutting them out with chipboard and then layered with snowflake paper.  I sanded the edges and laced up the boots adding some glitter and seam binding to hang them up and a rusty jingle bell.  I'm very please with these and i'm definitely going to make some more :)

thanks for stopping by
Marlou ♥

Hello Marlou - just in case Andrea didn't see your question about the holly, she drew the leaves freehand and cut them with scissors from our wool felt. Hope you are well, and hello Gracie! Mary G x

Hi Marlou!These skates are beautiful!

Thanks for getting back to me - maybe my Teddy is mixed with Havanese because we know he's a Yorkie mix and there are many similarities in their faces and shape. He loves the snow too. :) Glad your Gracie is such a great friend.
