Christmas Again

Never before have I been so organised for Christmas - and it's only May! Thanks to all the new Bugaboo digi stamps I won at the turn of the year, Christmas has been a joy - it means getting my hands on my new digi's where as in previous years I keep using old stamps the first half of the year awaiting the current year Christmas releases.

So, today was May Day - not the best weather wise, but I got my run first thing & the grass cut too before the heavens opened!

So tonight, it's a card then Britain's Got Talent with Colin, then off to bed for him as his Geography exam is tomorrow - good luck my little MRL!!!

My card uses a Bugaboo Reindeer - there are loads to pick from along with some craft companion papers & a blob or two of glaze.

Love this card, great to see how to use the Rudolph images with a different colour scheme. Never would have dreamed of using him with lilac. Thank you so much for joining in with our Anything Goes challenge this month at Catch The Bug. This open challenge really is a great way to see lots of different styles and techniques – always an inspiration.
