'Tis The Season

Winter Sports, Anyone?

'Tis the season for skating, tobogganing, skiing and of course... hockey. This tag was created with my son-in-law in mind. Any hockey enthusiast would like this one!

Go Canada! Cartridge

I knew I was going enjoy using the cute hockey skates, net, sticks and puck. There is also a goalie stick on the cartridge. In fact, the skates were my reason for buying this cart.


I couldn't resist adding a few details to the skates. They needed laces! I made them long enough to be wrapped around the ankles a few times, the way players wear them. I also gave the blades an extra shimmer of silver ink on the edges.

The pic at left shows the layers better.
