Christmas Club challenge 6




It's Sally's turn to set the challenge for us all this week and she wanted to see a card with a Sports theme! I struggled to find an image that looked anyway sporty for Christmas, couldn't believe I hadn't got one:9 Ended up using this Precious Moments ice skating girl. She had bare arms and bare legs so she must have been an indoor skater lol. I gave her nice warm tights and a long sleeved top as I wanted to put her in my little backdrop scene from the FF retro christmas cd.
Remember you are always welcome to join us in the club. We are just a group of ladies who want to get ahead with our Christmas cards and we are at number 6 already!! The list of ladies is in the sidebar. Just drop Clare or Keryn an email and they will get you started.
