Happy skating in 2015

Happy new year. 
I was inspired this week by the sketch portion of the Fusion challenge (they post an inspiration photo, and a sketch, and participants can use either or both.).  I was also inspired by the color palette at C.R.A.F.T.
The snowman on skates is from a set from Impression-Obsession.  I have colored him with pencils and matted him in a couple of oval nesties.  The snowflakes on the navy blue panel are from Clear Art Stamps and are white-embossed. The embellishments include die-cut snowflakes and a snippet of snowflake ribbon.
All the papers here came from the "blue" pockets in my expandable folder holding snippets -- Oh so many blues to choose from.
I would like to enter these challenges:
Fusion (sketch)
Pixie's Snippet Playground #156 -- snippets
Word Art Wednesday #164 -- anything goes
CRAFT #292 -- color inspiration
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday -- anything goes


  1. This is from your blue period.... I mean your blue file. That made me laugh. I used to have a huge pile of blue snippets but I hardly ever use blue so where do the snippets come from???!!! I passed them on to someone else to make a more reasonable amount. Fun card and I like the combination of die cut and embossed snowflakes.

  2. Hi Sandy!
