...more Christmas!!

Happy Friday peeps. Hope the sun is shining on you. If not, then I shall share a bit with you!!



 It's really warm today, here in Dorset. So much so that the pony has gone outside naked for the first time. It's hard to believe that a month ago we were suffering floods and gales, in fact it was only a week ago that the hay barn was repaired and made watertight again. I'm sure those folk on the Somerset levels and the other affected areas are still a long way from being normal, so I won't forget about them. 

Anyway enough of the weather report and on to the real reason I am here, to share another Christmas card with you. I have made a good start this year, so if my resolution does waver I have a good foundation!!



I used the current sketch from Christmas Challenges with Sketches. The papers are all from First Edition Nordic Christmas pad, even the shimmery one which I embossed. I used a woven ribbon to add texture too.  I had Bailey the reindeer already printed and, as luck should have it, was the perfect size too. He's coloured, as usual, with Promarkers. Just three pearls and that's it...done!!


This was inspired by the following challenges

Completely Christmas #1 - Anything Goes
Sparkles #38 - More than 3 embellishments 
Digistamp Boutique - March Customer Competition

That's it from me for today. Thank you so much for your lovely comments and see you soon xx
