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.
