James sledging variations on a theme

I love getting all my old Christmas stamps out at this time of year and because they haven't been used all year they are like meeting an old friend once again after not seeing them for a long time. Pennies are not available for new rubber friends to come and stay at my house as we are helping our son set up a new home .

These 3 cards I made with a cutie having fun from LOTV James sledging. All 3 images are coloured with promarkers and accented with icicle stickles for that hint of crisp fresh snow glinting in the early morning sun of a clear blue winter sky often with the delicate soft snowflakes falling from the sky. 

i again made this background all white using embossed copy paper from fiskars embossing boards . The sentiment is again from LOTV. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

passion for promarkers-include a sentiment
kafty hands-anything goes
All that stickles-happy holidays
My time to craft-cute and cuddle Christmas animals
created with love-anything goes

My second James card i fussy cut James again and layered him on a snowflake embossed spellbinders circle. I mounted that on a snowflake base of a freebie paper from bird house. The sentiment once again is also LOTV and the ribbon is from my stash.

i would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

crafty boots-Christmas
incy wincy-let it snow
craftin' desert divas-it's Christmas
craft your passion-let it snow
papertake weekly-Christmas creations

The third James card again coloured with promarkers and accented with stickles but this time extra sparkle with a gltter board tree.

I used bird house freebie paper again and a LOTV sentiment , a really quick card to make and I think it makes a cute scene.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

All that stickles-happy holidays
party time tuesdays-winter wonderland
Addicted to stamps-photo inspiration
sweet stamps-simple Christmas
Love rubber stamps-anything goes Christmas
Top tip tuesday-snowflakes
LEJ designs-festive fun
cards und more-10 minute make
