Freebie Friday!

Hello everyone.
I can't believe we are nearly at the end of November!!  Where has the year gone?
The weeks seem to rush by so quickly these days I guess I must be getting old(er)! LOL
Before I go any further I must mention that Wendy is having a huge 30% off sale over at Digital Delights.  Just click on the link in my sidebar to take you there - well worth a visit.
Anyway, it's Friday again and you know that means a Freebie over at Digital Delights.  This week Wendy has given us this delightful Peekin Elf - ain't he cute?

Well, I just couldn't resist making a card with him now could I?  So here it is:

I have used a red glittery swirl paper at the back and a green/red candy stripe paper at the foreground both of which are from Digiscraps 3.  I coloured in the image using my Sakura Gelly Glaze pens, Art Kure water paintbrush, metallic pencils and promarkers.  I used some green stickles glitter glue for the bobble on his hat.  I chalked around the outside to soften the edges and also around the candle flame (although I'm not sure you can quite see this in the piccy).
Now you know me - can't make a card without putting it in for some challenges so these are the ones I have chosen for this image:
Charisma Cardz Challenge     -     Anything Christmas
Colour Create Challenge        -     Red Green and White
Crazy 4 Challenges                -     I used their latest sketch number 12
Creative Card Crew              -     Favourite things (my Digital Delights images and my chalks)
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp             -     Use Glitter
Lots to do                             -     Free theme
Papertake Weekly                -     Christmas Crackers
Pollycraft Monday                -     Christmas theme
So that's eight challenges for this card.
So pop on over to Digital Delights, click on the Freebie Friday tab at the top of the page and this will give you instructions on how to obtain your freebie image.  Join up and follow Wendy's Digital Delights group at PCP or SNR Universe and he's yours for the taking.  Enjoy!
