Yes....ANOTHER Christmas card!

Hi, and welcome!

I've actually lost count of just how many Christmas cards I've made and sent out....and I still need more!
Just as well that there's a lovely Christmas card challenge at 
this week......yep, we are chompin' at the bit to see one of your last-minute Christmas makes.....or, is that just me?....hahaaa!

Joining us for the challenge this week are two fabulous sponsors (I know we call all our sponsors 'fabulous' but that's only because they ARE fabulous!)... we have two sponsors offering two great prizes, and we anticipate many entries this week (fingers crossed)!

 We have our wonderful friend at Stamp Art Design by Kathryne, offering one prize winner their choice of 5 digital images from her collection,  and we also have the super cute Di's Digi Downloads, who offers one winner a $10 store credit (works out to be about 4 images, or you can use the credit off a larger purchase).   Do visit Di's Digi Downloads shop, because there are so many wonderful images to see!

I used the very cute JINGLE DEER for my card......he's become a particular favourite of mine.....couldn't resist 'im.......

I started with a cream card base and layered red textured card as the background.  Do you see the pretty cream paper?  It's from Papermania Christmas Basics and I printed lots of teeny Jingle Deer onto it....told ya I was fond of 'im...hahaaa!  All I did was give him a red nose (Promarker).......

The pretty sentiment is from Craftwork Cards....just inked around the edges.......teeny snowflakes with red 'n' gold Card Candi help to frame the sentiment......
My happy ickle chappy is painted up with Promarkers and I placed him on a scalloped circle which was embossed with a Stampin' Up Trellis Folder, then a red scalloped circle was placed behind.....neat!  

Didn't get a close-up.....tut!.....but there's a length of glittery red ribbon and a lacy diecut border across the centre......the large snowflake completes this little card.

Our Design Team has had a lot of fun with this challenge.....go see!
