Whimsie Doodles Blog Hop

Are you ready to BLOG HOP?????
(Insert crowd roaring and loud music here)
This is our first blog hop at Whimsie Doodles, and we are so excited! This is going to be a fiesta of fun and prizes… in fact, it’s going to be so good, we’re sure you’ll be asking us when we can do it again!

Here is a new card I made using my favorite digi from Whimsie Doodles. It's a brand new stamp that's available today called Skates for Christmas. 


Incase your wondering why this image is my favorite because it reminds me of the days as a teenager when I would spend my saturdays skating at the local rink with all my friends.  I remember putting on these skates and wishing my toes wouldn't freeze! Off we would go my friends and I skating and laughing as Elvis Presley's Calendar Girl played in the background, it was always the same music year after year.  Skating was never complete until we had our yummy cup of hotchocolate.  Everytime I hear calendar girl now I suddenly crave hot chocolate! Ha!

Ok back to the hop.
Your first stop on the hop is Donna’s blog!  If your here from Kelly's blog then it's time to hop on over to Nicole's Blog.
In case you get lost along the way, here is the order (and yes, it is alphabetical!):

I never learned to ice skate, but this card makes me wish I had! This is probably my favorite card so far on the blog hop and partly because I fell in love with the paper used in the background!

Very sweet sentiment as well!
