Skating...

I made this card for the sketch challenge over at the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Blog.

This digital image is called Skating. I adore the expression on Bronte and how he hangs on to Bella's leg!

I had to admit that I took an ice skating class (PE) when I was in college and I was miserable on the first day of class... I must have fell at least 20 times!! I was definitely the worst skater in the class... I think part of it was that the pair of skates that I was wearing were cra... I mean not so good and that it was my first time on ice. My butt and legs were sore for a week after just the first day!!!!! I ended up getting an A for that class and I think that's because I had the biggest room for improvement! LOL!!!

Well, that's the "Laugh at Alice" of the day! Thanks for sticking around! Oh! I have never put on a pair of skates ever since the class, if you were interested...


Thanks for stopping by!

I had tons of fun ice skating when I was in Taiwan, that was 20 some years ago! Maybe I should let my little ones learn too! :)
