December Challenge at Crafty Calendar

 Good morning, our last challenge for this year starts today at Crafty Calendar
We are sponsored by ALL DRESSED UP stamps-
 the theme is Christmas.
I made a card for one of my granddaughter using a cute sponsor image given to the team, it's called Christmas Skate and is available here. These lovely digis are so good to colour, which I did using my trusty Copics. The background is coloured with pastels and I added some glitter to the 'ice'. The DP is from the works , I stamped and embossed the sentiment  to the top right corner
Emily loves glitter and sparkle, like most little girls, so glittery die cut trees and snowflakes were a must! 
Some lovely Christmas cards, made by my super teamies, to be enjoyed over at the challenge blog, so if you're still making your Christmas cards and need some inspiration head on over for a look. 

I'm feeling pleased with myself today as yesterday I wrote and addressed all my Christmas cards- they're ready to post next week. I usually end up putting it off until mid December then it's a terrible rush to get them done. Just a couple more to make....they will be hand delivered and I'm all done for this year.
Thanks for stopping by,
hope you have a happy weekend

A beautiful card for your granddaughter Chris, she will love that sweet image.
I spent yesterday putting my tree up, I just thought I was thirty again and it would all be done by lunch time, HA!!, not ever going to happen again, even with my son doing all the lifting and Mia being such a big help I was almost on my knees by tea time....I must say it was worth it, but phew...hahaha... Well done doing all your cards. xxx

She's a really lovely image (oh for long legs like that) and perfect for your Granddaughter, red was such a good idea for her dress as it really pops against the sparkle.
