A Christmas Star

By now it should be no secret to everyone that I love Bugaboo stamps! I had none last Christmas and now I have loads, thanks in part to their generosity in sponsoring loads of challenges, but also down to the fact they regularly have huge sales - there's one on throughout July where all stamps are half price. That plus Fri Freebies means there's no excuse not to add them to your collection.

A particular favourite set of mine are these lovely Reindeer with their little jumpers and cute faces. Several have already appeared in my blog and today I have tried the monochrome look - minus the nose - it HAD to be red! The papers this time are Winterland by Fancypants and edges have again been distress inked.


Challenges;
Winter Wonderland - Monochrome - I went with brown
The Secret Crafter - Xmas
Stamp n Plus - Anything Goes
Christmas Card Challenges - Monochromatic
CHCC - Funnies - Well I think he's kinda funny/cute!
One Stop Crafts - Coffee & Cream
Crimbo Crackers - Anything Goes
LCI - Christmas In July
Holly Jolly Christmas - Reindeer & Stars
