Finally finished my Mom's gift, it took forever but I love it.

I finally was able to play with my Sew Easy Toys and incorporate my love of scrapbooking with crosstitch.

I'm not a bird fan but I love Cardinals, especially if I'm lucky enough to see one on a snowy winter day, I feel that I have been blessed to see such a beautiful sight.

This is another gorgeous image by Glitterbabe, (Badge to the right) I love working with her images, they are whimsical and impressive.

Colored with my Copics, I added Crystal Stickles to the pine needles and tip of tail for glitter and sparkle. I used my Memory Box die, Snowflake Corner, to create my edging, Paper is from Basic Grey, Jovial, all else from my stash.

My daughter has been iceskating since she was 4 years old. I love every minute watching her skate and perform. She has two International Gold Metals from Theater on Ice, I think those are her most cherished possessions.

Now she skates on the Syncho Team at U of I in Champaign. Once November hits we start hitting the road to watch her in competition. Tomorrow we are heading off to Michigan.
This is her Christmas card, when I saw this image at Glitterbabe, "Ice Dancing" I immediately thought of my daughter when she was little and knew I had to have it.

I colored the image with Copics, added liquid applique for the fur and Stickles for the snow and fur trim. Swiss Dot embossing folder, and my edging is from Memory Box, Frostyville Border.
Ribbon and skates are from my stash.
