Mid challenge reminder for Crafty Calendar

Well, here we are -the middle of January already...Christmas seems like a distant dream...before we know it will be here again...! I'm not wishing the time away, it passes too quickly as it is, but I have to admit I am looking forward to spring, this cold weather is a nasty shock after the mild (if very wet!) winter we have had so far. I'm waffling on a bit here so I'll get back to the reason for this post - it's to remind you that there's still plenty of time to join in with this month's challenge at Crafty Calendar. The theme is 'Something New' so plenty of scope there! There are two prizes on offer from our lovely sponsors this month, Wild Orchid Crafts and All Dressed Up.

For my card I used a sweet image Little Skater, from All Dressed Up, I've coloured her with copics and added loads of  Wink of Stella to her dress. The card shape is my 'Something New' -another gorgeous template from Sandra's Scrapshop, this time an ice-skating boot. It was fun to make!
Thanks for visiting...don't forget to join the fun!
