Who Wants to Skate?

I was commissioned by my Mom to make cards for my sisters skating coaches. Here is what I came up with.



I used Cricut Cartridges:

Jolly Holidays - Girl
Create a Critter - Pond

This is another Tag card. I cut two tags to make a card.

This was made with: Celebrate With Flourish

The first card I have entered in Fantabulous Cricut: Challenge me Monday #90
  • Ribbons are such a wonderful way to add detail to your Cricut creations. Whether you are making a card, designing a scrapbook layout, or creating an item to decorate your home, ribbon can be just the right embellishment to finish things off. This week, we are challenging you to use ribbon on your projects. 

The second card I have entered in Bitten by the Bug 2: Winter Frolic Tag Challenge
  • The challenge was to make a Tag using Winter Frolic.

I don't have that cartridge so I improvised.


  1. Both creations are just fabulous, Colin! Love the skating theme. thanks so much for joining us at BBTB2. xxD

  2. Two great skate themed creations. Love the tag card and the red and blue together. Thanks for sharing with us at BBTB2.

  3. wow, that's a great tag! Thanks for joining us at BBTB2!

  4. What a lovely scenic card for the first one! And such a fun and bright tag for your second creation!! How great of you to make these for them!

    P.S. Found another male card maker, woot woot! :)

  5. Very pretty tag. I love that ice skate's so vintage looking. Thanks for joining us at BBTB2 this week.

  6. Super cute-- I need the Jolly Holidays cart :) Thanks for creating with us at FCCB this week!

  7. Oh Wow Colin, both your cards are great! The coaches are going to love them! I'm so glad you shared them with us over at BBTB2!

  9. Hey Colin!

    Stop over at Sherrie's blog,
    She is going to be giving away some blog candy to a follwer on Monday. Guess what it is? Winter Frolics! Plus, she does beautiful projects. Very inspirational. Speaking of inspirational....I have been on a mad hunt for this Holly Jolly cartridge from the cute cards you make using it! I can't find it anywhere around here! Ugh! I'm sure after Christmas it will be everywhere. That skater card is amazing! I have Create a Critter and would never have thought to use the pond cut. What a great idea! You mentioned about doing a cut exchange/challenge blog hop. I think that is such a good idea too! I think that is something we should really think about doing after the first of the year! It really is a challenge when someone gives you something and you have to figure out what to do with it. Let me know what you think. Good luck with FCCB, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! Keep up the good work!
