Emma Canning Monthly Challenge


Can't believe it's December first already! That means it's time for a new challenge over at the Flat Friends Challenge Blog, our third monthly challenge is up! The challenges will run monthly and the prize is four Flat Friends digi images to one random winner. You can find all the details on the challenge blog. 

If you haven't seen these fun images from Emma Canning yet, check them out at Polka Doodles, they are just so cute and hip and fun to color. Lots of new ones were recently added, too! And this month, Emma is offering a freebie, so even if you don't have any Flat Friends images (yet), you can still play along with the freebie. It is super cute, too, perfect for holiday cards!

Our challenge is all white cards where only the image is colored, with a twist of "crimbo" theme. Now for those of you who don't know (like me), that means Christmas (I had to google it when I first joined Emma's team). Cool word right? My image is called Skate Away With Me. Here is a cute little graphic from Emma to inspire you.


Hope you will check out the blog and see all the gorgeous DT creations and play along with us!

I've used the weekly sketch from SCS for the layout.
