First Christmas card and good news!

Howdy everyone in blog land on this gorgeous afternoon!

Hope you are all ok and are having a fabulous day! 

Well it's been a quiet few days for me due to my pain in my hip so been trying to rest , well apart from clearing up after my boys and the dog that is lol.

Some other news is that I'm back on the digistamps4joy design team! They have been kind enough to have me back to which I'm truly grateful for. 
You can find their recent challenge here of anything goes: DigiStamps4Joy

I made my first Christmas card today and the digi stamp I used was a freebie from polkadoodles to use in their challenge.  So I decided to have a go and as the angelberry image was a skater with a candy cane I thought I'd make my first Christmas card. 

You can get your freebie digi here : Polkadoodle's Blog to use for their challenge.

Easel Christmas Card

I coloured the image in using my pro markers and  for the wings I used diamond sparkles/Angel whispers.  I created my own easel card and for the top I used a background I got from the snowmans Christmas kit from crafters companion I got from last year.  
The sentiment at the bottom was a stamp and used die cuts which I had lying around from last year also. 
Red roses are paper roses from my crafty stash. 
The rest of the embellishments on the card are from bits and bobs I had lying around lol.

Hi Sharon,
so sorry to hear your hip is again playing you up. You should make those boys of yours help you a little more so you can rest it. Tell them if they don't I'll be round and make them. lol.
Superb card yet again you really do create such beauties in super quick time.
Have a wonderful crafty evening.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
