Having Fun.

The challenge with Crafty Hazel Nuts this week is to use Santa or his helpers on your Christmas Card. A quick look through my stash of recycled used cards produced Rudolph taking some time out having fun skating. Hazel did put 'Helpers' so another trawl through found these eight toppers which all had red noses and we all know there is only  one Rudolph so some quick blackening with a drawing pen and black sticker pearls and hey presto the rest of the team! 


A centre step card again.The sentiment had been saved from another used card and the green card stock and backing papers from my stash. I didn't have a die cut to fit the image  (without cutting the original card down drastically) so I used my corner punch to create the shaped edges.instead. A dollop of glossy accents on his nose to match the shine of the pearls on the others.

I must admit they do rather look like the huntsmen's trophies mounted as they are but I would just like to reassure my readers that no Reindeer were shot or hurt in the making of this card!

Crafty Hazel Nuts: Santa or his helpers.
Hiding In My Craft Room: Super Scraps.
Created with Love: Different Fold.
Crimbo Crackers: No Stamped images.

This is so cute and i didn't think of the huntsman trophies at all.
I did have a giggle when i read it though!!!

I want to try these step cards. I have found directions, just have to get up my courage!

Little Miss C loved that "something
special" and boy oh boy, did she ever think it was special.

She is making you a thank you card this weekend...soon as I can get over there to help her...it's a secret which image she is colouring right now...teeeheehee

After I walked her to school on Wednesday and then went back to hers with Mr P, she asked me to stamp up 2 of every image she owns! Thank goodness I had copic paper with me! So you see, it truly is a secret!
