ABC Christmas Challenge ,,, 'R' is for ,,,,, RUDOLPH !! who else !! :-)

All together now ,,,,, 1,2,3

Rudolph the red nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose ,,,,
and if you ever saw it
you would even say it glowed ,,,,,, :-) Now the tune will be stuck in your head all day :-)

It was the lovely Cathy's turn to choose the theme this week and she chose

RUDOLPH ,, with the optional extra of brads :-)


We are sponsored for the next fortnight by the lovely Dulcie from the Wild Rose Studio and she will be giving away 2 Christmas stamps of the winners choice to one lucky entrant ! :-)

the DT were all given this fab Rudolph image and several papers from the Christmas Collection CD



I followed the fab sketch on the Sweet Stop Challenge I coloured the image with copics and added Stickles here and there. I used a nice big dollop of Glossy Accents for his shiny nose :-) The papers I used are also from the CD. I had a lovely bit of red organza ribbon with a gold swirly pattern on it and thought it looked perfect with his antlers ,,, so i went over them with a gold copic pen :-) The poinsettia is from a Tim Holz Prima Flowers collection and I added a brad to the center so that I did the 'optional extra' :-)
