Lizzie Anne Challenge 2



These Lizzie Anne ice skates from Christmas In The City, bring back some fond childhood memories. Coming from a family with ten children, we didn't have a lot of extras. I'm not sure where my father found a few pairs of used ice skates, but I was able to make a pair work for me. My older brother and I would walk down our country gravel road to a little pond about a mile away from our home. We would skate until our feet were so cold, we could hardly feel them. We would bring along a little radio and I would pretend I was an Olympic champion...lol.

I love this card! Your skates really look nostalgic. Great job!

I come from a family of 10 too! We used to walk down to a park to skate. I am the 9th of 10 children so I was always wearning something that was handed down through several people.
