Magnolia Down Under Challenge #4


The theme this week is "BLING IT ON". With a daughter who does figure skating this stamp just called out "pick me, pick me!". I have spent soo much time adding bling to skating costumes it was nice to add it to a card about skating! I really wish you could see this IRL - the chunky glitter, the diamontes and the sparkly silver ribbon just bling up a storm in the light! I have even used a silver glitter gel pen on the skate blades - a sensory overload - LOL.

Here's a little "show off" photo of my daughter skating!! Melbourne has only 1 undersized rink - so our skating community is very small - but we just LOVE the sport!!

This is one of her "signature" moves - she mastered it early on and is now always included in her routines! It's hard taking competition photos though - the ice is so far away, you can't use a flash and the skaters move too fast!!! At least my cards sit still when I'm taking their photos - LOL...

I hope this has inspired you to come along and play at MDUC this week.....

I can totally see and appreciate the bling in this card! I love that chunky glitter... perfect for the skating costume. A truly wonderful card!

I'm so envious of your daughter being able to figure skate. I always watch figure skating in the Olympics and dream about what it would be like to sail along on the ice. (sigh) Must be heaven.

Another fantastic card Debbie - just love all the 'Icy' glitter.

They look so cute skating together!

Your daughter looks wonderful in the photo - you must be so proud of her. I'd love to see her skate in person. (Brings back memories of my skating days from years gone by........)
