** EDIT - Silly Me only saved this post, forgot to schedule it - Smack on the wrist for me! Sorry Guys**

Good Morning!! How are we all today, I have been naught and had a lay in! Last day of holidays before Amelia starts school! So much to try and get done but don't want to do any of it!!

    and that is just a fraction of whats on offer! 

    Ok so onto my card, I was meant to make a birthday card, but somehow I ended up making.....

    Yes... A Christmas card, but it still fits with the easel cards! So i was Ok there! This is one of the FAB new stamps by Sugar Nellie available over at Funk Kits, I just had to have him, i fell in love and that was it! I used my fab christmas sentiments from LOTV, and since making this card I have been out to try and get a punch to use with them, but the one that I have brought is slightly too bug, so back on the hunt I think! The papers are from the I Believe collection from My Minds Eye! Ahhh they are lush!

    you cant see it too well but i did used a shaped card blank, on the bottom i added gems to try and point it out! 

    Here is is up-close, I coloured him using my Pro-markers, I forgot (once again) to note what colours i used! But if i ever remember I will edit the post for you! 

    I just love his face so much!!! 

    here is a little charm i added too! I thought a reindeer was best for him! 

    Well i hope you like my card and that you will pop back soon!
