Christmas Skates

 Good morning, it's time once again  for a new challenge at Crafty Catz- this week we're sponsored by 

                                                    Jan’s Digital Stamps

the optional twist, chosen by Rhoda, our host for this week, is

Show some flowers.

I have used  Christmas Skates a beautiful image, courtesy of our generous sponsor. I've used Copic markers to colour, papers are from The Works, die cut foliage and sentiment . The poinsettia is cut from the same paper pad - I used a gel pen to add a little sparkle to the flower and white glitter to add 'frost' to the foliage- neither of which show in the photo.

There's plenty more inspiration from the lovely ladies at Crafty Catz So please do head on over to take a look, then it's your turn to inspire us with your own fabulous creations.

Thanks for visiting,

hope your weekend is a pleasant one.


Challenge entries:

This looks lovely Chris, much as I like using alternative Christmas colours, something about the warmth of traditional reds and greens that always appeals.
