Phindy's "Christmas in Spring" challenge

Just a quick post today and no, I haven't missed the fact that Spring is here (although it's kind of hard to believe considering the rain that's been falling). Today's card is in answer to a challenge from Phindy's Place - to make a Christmas card.

I had lots of fun pulling out the Christmas papers and looking through the winter images. I decided on this one of a boy sledding as he reminds me of my kids when they were sledding this past winter. I created the snowy hills by tearing and inking (with Copic BG0000) the edges of some sparkly paper recovered from last Christmas' crackers. I love how it looks like he's flying over the top of the snow!


  • Basic Grey "Eskimo Kisses" patterned paper

  • Sparkly card (stash, old Christmas crackers)

  • Brad (stash)

  • Phindy's Place, digital stamp

  • Copic markers
