A touch of inspiration.

I know, I know I haven't been around here much, but let me tell ya, I have been BIZZY!!!
Crazy man!
I have been doing laundry which has been purposely negleted for the past month, cuz #1. I was in protest of my families needs & #2. I didn't feel like it.
Now that we are going on our 4 day family vacation, I figured I should wash some socks!!

So my inspiration from me to you today is my Tilda & Edwin Skating card.
Ms. Clairee (aka-Susie Sugar) inspired me to use these stamps (that I won from Magnolia-licious BTW). I stamped off & colored one of each of these stamps but never did anything with them, so I figured why not just make something, right, so I used them to pull this card together ridiculously fast.  
I colored this little couple about 3 weeks ago, so my card took me no time at all
I steered clear of half the embellies I wanted to cover it with! A challenge for me for sure!
Enough (how do my UK friends say it) waffling!

I borrowed my friends snowflake die cut (I am buying some this wknd if it's the last thing I do-lol) and covered them with glitter. The glittery ric rak ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbons  & the sentiment is from Prairie Fairy Designs (it's part of this set).

BTW- Really Reasonable Ribbons has this to say:
