I picked up this cute digi freebie from the lovely Janet who currently has another fab Christmas freebie on offer so hop over and visit her. I added some glossy accents to his nose to really make it shine. I used the lovely sketch at A Gem of a Challenge. I had to cut out the image as trying to make it into a diamond nearly filled the card! I ran the white background through a snowflakes Cuttlebug folder. The background paper is from a new pack by Kars and as it had all the traditional Christmas colours in it decided to make a colourful card. The other bits are scraps from my old Christmas papers. The large snowflake was made using a Sizzix die and the smaller ones with an MS punch. I added snowflake brads to them all.
Other challenges
ABC Christmas R is for Rudolph (plus brads)
Bee Crafty Anything goes
Secret Crafter Make a start on Christmas
Totally Gorjuss Christmas in August

I have some friends coming round soon and we're off out for a meal this evening. Tomorrow I'm off to Thetford to the Sincerely Yours cardmaking show so I made a list today of all the things I need. I'm really looking forward to it especially as I am meeting up with my friend Lynsey there. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
