For Kitchen Sink Stamps' Let's Make a Scene design today, I have crafted a tall Christmas card featuring a recent set released from KSS, Figure Skates Multi Step Clear Stamps. I placed the skates on the hardwood floor and above it part of a large picture window looking out on the happy skaters.

  8. WOW, a scene within a scene.... Love this.. Now get those skates on and get out there. Your scenes are truly amazing Lynn... It is always a pleasure to see what you have been up to and I appreciate your blog visits as well. I'm hoping to find more time for creating as we get stuff done around the new house.
