Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer ,,, tra la la la la ,,,,,:-)

Hi all :-) I hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend and managing to get some crafty time :-)

I have put everything to one side so that I can join in with the fab sketch challenge over on the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge , our very own America is sponsoring the challenge on behalf of the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge ( whose theme is Thankful/Thank you) and she is giving away 2 fabulous House Mouse stamps ,,, neither of which I own so I will be keeping my fingers crossed :-) You could use the skech and make a Thank You card and join in both !! :-)

I used this very cute on dasher On Dancer image ,, sooo cute :-) I coloured with Copics and inked the edges with Vintage Photo DI, the paper is Basic Grey from the Jovial pack , all the edeges were distressed and then stitched. I used a Memory Box Twigs and berries die, LOVE this ! I used plain white card for the die cuts and coloured the branches with copics and the leaves with distress inks, I also used a Martha Stewart Holly punch for the bottom corner, I added a few Hero Arts red gems, Star Dust Stickles and some Jillibean Soup twine to finish.

Thanks for looking :-) I have some candy at the top of my blog if you haven’t already joined in Smile
