O is for Old

Morning Peeps. Can you believe this weather that we are having? For those of you who are not aware, we are in the middle of a heatwave here. Even the dog wants to be inside. Tomorrow the temperature is supposed to feel like 46C with the humidity which is 114F. I am melting just thinking about it.

Over on the ABC Christmas Challenge blog we have a new challenge for you.  This week we would like for you to dig deep into your stamps and pull out your favorite oldies because
O is for Old

For my card this week I dug deep into my stamp drawer to find this great old stamp from Stampendous called Pookie Skates. A few years back all of my cards had this image on them. He has had a bit of a        re-vamp in colouring style since then. This time around he has been coloured with Copics. I just love this cheery and traditional red and green combo.

I have paired him with a great sentiment from LOTV, can't wait for their new release. I pulled some great MME papers that coordinated with the bright image to put the card together and I have embellished with some punched hearts to pick up on the love across the miles theme.

I want to thank you for stopping by. Be sure to visit the ABC Christmas Challenge blog and see the gorgeous creations from the rest of the team.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
