Christmas Skates

     THIS IS IT !  A new challenge blog, Jan's Digi Stamps, starts today and I'm so happy to be part of the DT!  Our theme is always Anything Goes and there is no requirement to use Jan's Digi Stamps, although they are the exclusive sponsor.  However, if you do use images from one of Jan's sets, there will be an extra reward for you if you are the random winner.

     The challenges will begin on the First and Third Mondays of each month and will run until 3 p.m. (Pacific time) the Sunday before the next challenge begins.  Winners and Top 3 will be posted on the Wednesday following the start of the new challenge.

     My card today features an image from Jan's set called "Christmas Skates" and I reversed the black and white image before printing it.

Colored with ProMarkers and gel inks
Image & red frame cut with die from Die-namics
White frame cut with Memory Box die
Hand tied bow with silver snowflake
Sentiment rubber stamp (unknown maker)

     Please come and play with us these next 2 weeks.  Our challenge is not limited to just cards.  You can enter anything you have hand-crafted so it truly is an "Anything Goes" challenge.  The winner is going to walk away with a gift certificate to Jan's Digi Stamps store and we already know you're going to fall in love with Jan's digital artwork so that prize to the random winner is something really special!  Hoping to see you at the challenge.

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Wonderful job on coloring the image. Particularly like how you did the holly leaves. The red background enhances the card.

What a fantastic card you have made. Love the way you have flipped one of the skates instead of having two next to each other going the same way. Thank you for entering and best wishes in the draw. Kym (Colour Crazy Challenge Design Team Member).
