I for Ice, Ice Skates, and Impossible !

      We're on to the Letter "I" in the 30 Days of Christmas at Beccy's Place and that's a difficult letter for me because my Imagination seems to have flagged a bit after yesterday's marathon of card making to get caught up.  :-D  But I did have this fun Ice Skating Santa image from Beccy's Place so I colored him in traditional colors but used Ivory for his face color.  I colored the ground beneath him to look like an Ice pond, making sure his Ice Skate was clearly touching it.  I used Icy-looking, glittered dp and ribbon to complete the cold winter scene.

     My one critique would be how nearly Impossible it would be for Santa to look so graceful while ice skating when he has all that bulk to carry around and keep balanced.  :-D

I used Sketch #194 from Sweet Sketch Wednesday,
turned a quarter turn so the rectangle
is at the bottom and adjusted for A2.

Colored w ProMarkers
Cut w Sizzix dies
Glittered white dp is a scrap
Silver snowflake ribbon is a scrap
Sentiment printed, fussy cut, and matted

     I will have a second post today but it won't be for Beccy's Place.  Nope, I actually made a couple of cards (during my marathon session the other night when I couldn't sleep) which have nothing to do with the 30 Days of Christmas at Beccy's Place, although they are Christmas themed cards.  :-D  

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Great card NanaConnie. He does look elegant doesn't he. Not sure that I would look elegant if I tried to ice-skate!

Wonderful colouring NC, you've done a great job with the shading and highlighting of Santa's suit. Love the sparkly paper at the bottom and the gorgeous ribbon too. Beautiful card!

A Great Santa and fit too, I think he's been on a diet ready for all the work he has to do, but playing in the meantime. Love it Connie.
