Hopefully the only snow I'll see this year is on cards.  I spent many years living where it snowed.  I tried most snow activities and pretty much have an emergency room tale to tell for every one of them.  You don't need snow to ice skate but I include it in my list of winter sport injury stories.   I didn't end up in the emergency room that time but I was carried off the ice by a couple big guys and had to hobble to my ride.  So when I see a cute image like this one it brings up those fond memories for me. 
Here's the deets:
stamp - Mo's Digital Pencil "Skating"
ink - hp printer
paper - DCWV cs; My Favorite Thing "Whip Cream" cs; S.E.I. "Berry Melody Gleaming Trill" dsp

  21. This is a lovely card. The image is a cutie and your tale of woe made me smile. I also tend to be accident prone so the thought of going skiing would be my idea of torture....I wasn't very good at iceskating, could walk on the carpet but went ass over tip as soon as I touched the ice....!

    Many thanks for joining in with our 'Use a Digi' challenge over at OSAAT & hope to see you back again soon.
