It's Christmas Time at A La Card Monkey

I have been so busy that I almost forgot to do my card for A La Card Monkey. Plus I have been in Halloween Mode so it was hard to jar my brain to make a Christmas card. I am doing a Domestic Goddess Tea Party on Saturday the 3rd and have been prepping for that, we are making a Chip Board Album shaped like a tea cup. The album has over 50 pieces alone and plus we are also making 2 cards. The event is from 11:00 to 2:00 I hope 3 hours is enough to make it all.

I was thinking that "Winter Wonderland" made me think of a ice skating rink, so that is what inspired me with this card. I think I will make another card with more color later.
What a cute sketch!! Click Here to go see the Challenge Blog.

The cute Ice Skates are from the stamp set Jolly Bingo Bits.

This reminds me of an older, more traditional Christmas where a kid would grab his or her skates and head to the nearest pond. It's really "quiet" for you. I'll take your tempature tomorrow to make sure you're okay. lol

This is a very pretty traditionally coloured Christmas card and I love it. Love the way you have done the sentiment too!
