Last Minute Quickie Christmas card to share...

Hi folks! I made this last minute quickie to share with all my friends, bloggers, facebook buddies and fellow forum members. I don't suppose I'll get a chance to post again before Christmas so I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy 'n' healthy 2010!!
Rubber stamping Guru's will spot that this beauty is Toodles and Binks Skate. I am thrilled to announce that I am on the Toodles and Binks design team so I'm sure I will be sharing more cards featuring these lovely stamps in the new year. I coloured the image with Copic Markers, using a hint of glitter here and there and used coloured chalks around the edges. The backing papers are by DCWV and the greeting banner was already on one of the sheets (see I told you this was a quickie) I used my EK Success punch to create the scalloped border and a Cuttlebug die for the decorative corners. I tied a silver, sheer, ribbon bow and attached it to the card using a gem brad.
I followed the sketch on The Pink Elephant Challenge. It's another entry for Crafty Ann's challenge of 'no red or green'. The Cupcake Challenge has a theme of 'Celebration'. For the Creative Card Crew 'Anything goes'. Stamp Something still require ' Holiday Somethings' and My Time to Craft would like to see our 'Yuletide Wishes'.
See you all in the New Year!!!

Sandra, what a gorgeous card. Hope you have had a good Christmas with the family.

I have looked at your digi-stamp blog and on here as I was trying to e-mail. As you can see from my blog at:

http://kyms-crafty-cards.blogspot.com/

I make my cards solely to sell to raise funds for different charities. I was wondering if you would be OK if I bought some of your digi-stamps and used this for that purpose. many thanks
