One for Christmas

There seem to be a few more Christmas challenges around now that we are creeping inevitably closer to the season to be jolly so I have started making the occasional Christmas card when I have a little time in between work and my dt commitments. This card was made with one of my own digi stamps - find them here - this one is called Skating Josie. I coloured the image with Promarkers and added some ultra fine glitter on her pom-poms. I used distress inks round the edges of the die cut frame and to stamp some swirls in her wake. The papers are from my favourite set at the moment - My Mind's Eye  Lost & Found Christmas. The snow flake and flourish dies are from Marianne's Creatables and the sentiment is from Inkadinkado.


Entering the following:
Craft Room Challenge - Anything Christmas
Jingle Belles - Christmas - Suzy Snowflake song
Polkadoodle - Distress it
Crafts and Me - Stripes
Little Darlings Challenges - Brown and red
Simon Says Stamp - Dies or punches
Digital Tuesday - People Images
