Skidding


I had great sales yesterday at the hospital shop. By the time we had a meal and put everything away, I had a phone call to make, watch Doc Martin and off to bed after an early start and busy day. It meant no time to catch up on blogs so I will try to make up for that today. So onto my card. I like a variety of colour combinations for Christmas cards but red, white and blue are still my very favourites together. I've used one of my new LOTV images, Skiddy Skates coloured with Copics. The card was cut with Go Kreate frilly squares 10 and I used another of my fave die sets, MFT pierced fishtails. The backing paper is Carta Bella Bundled Up and the red banners are oddments of some old Papermania paper. The sentiment is from Pink Gem.

Challenges
Noor! Design UK shaped card 
Without Words for the boys 
Inky Chicks White Christmas 
As you like it Favourite die (hard to choose between both of the ones I have used. Love pierced dies and love fishtails but I also love these shaped cards) 
Winter Wonderland anything but square 
Graph'It Christmas colours 
The Ribbon Girl anything goes with an image
