CHNC Christmas #527 , 30th January

 This weeks option is Christmas Gnomes, I've used an image from Digi Doodles, called - Wrolin Gnome, Snowboard.  I'm thinking more along the lines of a boogie board on the water as the last thing I would want to see on Christmas day is snow.  Living in Australia, I always look forward to a hot Christmas day.

Coloured with copic pens, added glitter and snow marker for his beard.

A new sponsor for this year, Angie's Digitals, I chose to use an image call "Lil Lila with Butterfly."
