Old Skates

A couple of weeks ago I was looking around for an ice skate stamp. I liked the new one PTI released, but wasn't gotta-have-it-crazy for it. I wanted something a little different. So I'm searching, and searching, finding a few but nothing I'm too crazy about. So I'm on Splitcoast, as usual, when I click on a message that has a picture attached of a card using this stamp. The poster was trying to identify the stamp maker. I knew as soon as I saw it, that was the ice skate stamp I wanted. To make a long story longer, it turns out the stamp was no longer being made, it was from several years ago. Well, I guess quite a few of us emailed the company (DRS Designs) asking about the stamp,  that they brought it back into production! How cool is that?! 
Anyway, here it is in all it's glory!
Pretty, huh? I don't know what it is, I just think they're so cute. I paper pieced them with some Cosmo Cricket Be Good paper, and matted them with these gorgeous Spellbinders Labels. The background paper is Cosmo Cricket Wonderland, gorgeousness!!
I colored the metal part of the skates with a silver Copic Spica pen, then went over it with some clear Liquid Glass. It looks like real shiny metal!

Thanks for the well wishes everyone, I'm still feeling under the weather, but feel a bit better. I tried to do too much yesterday, and immediately felt worse, so I crashed on the couch for the rest of the day. I'm definitely taking it easy today, I need to recuperate before resuming my usual hectic days!
