And another 6 bite the dust!

Rudolph time again over on Sarn's blog where she would like us to make at least 2 cards .
I have kind of set my own bench mark of making 6 cards.
(Whose daft idea was that then!).
Looking through my hoarded stash I found a topper sheet of Robin's to use.
The silver card blanks were in my stash as well but  were originally oblong.
By cutting 3 in half it gave me 6 smaller cards to play with.
The topper sheet is by My Paper Stash 'Robin on a Perch'.
Sentiments are Anita's black Glitterations and Message tags.
Design papers are all snippets in my stash.
Blue/silver stars by Alison Butler.
Red/white stripped holly by Holly Hobby.
Silver snowflakes paper sent by my friend Barbara in America.
Others  were freebies and of unkown origin.

Bows, ribbon pearls and gems from my stash.
Entering into the following challenges:
Rudolph Day: Make at least 2 Christmas cards.
Pixie's Crafty Workshop #126. Use up your snippets. (design paper was all snippets.)
Completely Christmas #13 Anything goes.
Crafty Hazelnuts #178 Christmas in your country. (Used Robins typically English.)
Christmas Card Challenge #26 Anything goes.
Me and Mine Beat The Rush.# Anything goes.
Crafty Hazelnuts Extra# Anything goes  Christmas
