Default Get Your Skates On by Cook22 - VSNDEC14E - Saturday, Dec. 13 - Noon EST

Challenge Title: Get Your Skates On
Hostess: Cook22 aka Sabrina
Keyword:VSNDEC14E

Date: Saturday 13th Dec, 12 Noon Eastern Time


Get Your Skates On:It's very rare for lakes and ponds to freeze over here, so outdoor skating is not an activity one sees. When we were growing up my mother (who lived in Canada for some years after leaving France) used to tell us about how they would freeze over the football pitches there to make outdoor winter rinks. We were fascinated and amazed at this idea!
So for my challenge, we are going ice-skating. Get out your images of people (or animals) skating, or some of those great skate dies I have seen. If you don't have those, got any roller skates? A bit risky on ice but OK on a card .


If you're really stuck, please feel free to go tobogganing or skiing instead rather than miss out on the fun and feel that you can't participate.
But, if you have skates, you get bonus hot chocolate with marshmallows from me, since skates is really what the challenge is about. Sorry it has to be virtual, but that's fewer calories for you to worry about .


Remember, there's a 6 month Fan Club membership or extension to be randomly drawn as a prize for each challenge!!



View the gallery for this challenge: Forums at Splitcoaststampers

b) From the Sub-gallery dropdown list, choose Virtual Stamping and Scrapbooking Nights ~ it's the last in the list.
c) From the new sub-gallery dropdown list choose Frozen - it's the very top of the list.
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword VSNDEC14E when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.


It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your layout is seen. THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING ALONG!!!

Waves hello - we did actually have frozen puddles here this morning, but not so as you could skate.
But, topical story...I was visiting one of my best friends last night to give her her birthday gift. Her daughter and family live in the south of Spain, and the two younger kids are real whizzes on roller skates, at competition level.
This year their town has frozen an outdoor ice-rink for the winter, and asked the kids' teacher if she could put together something for the grand opening. Well, there's a BIG difference between roller skates and ice-skating, so not all the kids could make the transition with only one afternoon to practice something they'd never tried before. One of my friend's grandchildren couldn't hack it, but the other one did and took part in the grand opening. I bet she loved every moment of it. If I could skate outdoors while the ambient temperature was still in the mid seventies, that sounds wonderful!

DH has skated on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, but with my not very good head for heights, I didn't even go there! It's a great memory, though.

Happy Skating, everybody.

Wow! I didn't know you could skate at the Eiffel Tower! We saw it when there but didn't go into it. I have photos of it from lots of views! LOL
Well, first challenge today was before I thought. Not ready. In fact have a class to go to at 1:00. But I will go look and see what I have. I don't think skates, but sleds.
Thank you for our challenge. These always get us going!

I found one of these stamps as well! Off to see what I can come up with.

I'm from the Midwest so I do remember the parks making the outdoor ice rinks at the field in the park. So much fun to go to the park and skate ... I can remember we used to share skates passing them on as sizes changed from year to year Now there are all the fancy ice rinks everywhere and while it's made ice skating an all year opportunity, it's not so easy anymore for everyone to get to try it

I found one stamp with skates! I think I've had it almost 7 years and never made a card with it.

You're never going to get a better opportunity, Paula! Imaginary, calorie-free hot chocolate and marshmallows for you when you get it inky this week. .

I love VSN for making me use lots of stamps - I inked up an older "new" one for Lee's challenge!

Sabrina- Funny! Doing catch-up for the mini's? That would definitely rank in the OCD challenge record books. I must confess, I'd been thinking about it. Ice cubes and deer? Dunno. I've deer enough in my back yard, and ice cubes on my shoulder...!

Well Sabrina living in Minnesota I learned how to skate on an outdoor rink. It's funny this theme came up today. We are having warmer than usual temps and it's above freezing. I took a walk today and the rink about a block from me now looks like a lake..but in maybe 2 days it will return to "frozen" and all the kids and hockey players will be back.

Fun challenge, Sabrina! I had just the right image. Growing up on the beach in S. TX, we didn't do much ice skating...but we did a lot of water skiing & surfing. We used to ice skate occasionally in an indoor rink at the Galleria in Houston. Here's my Forums at Splitcoaststampers. Thanks so much for looking!

We lived about one mile from the local skating rink, and weather permitting we (friends) went skating every night until 8. School curfew by parents. This will be a fun challenge! thanks for all you do for us by being hostess!

Great skate images, ladies!
I have to go and practice for a carol service on Monday night, but I'll swing by again before I go to bed to see who else is out on the ice.

I enjoyed skating as a child, certain I can't do it now but I enjoyed the memory while making this card!
