'Ditzy the Reindeer!'

Brrrr the temperature has really dropped here, to the extent we had a few flurries of snow over the last few days. Thankfully nothing has stuck!

Anyhoos I'm here to tell you about the new challenge starting this week over at Delightful Challenges. Where this week the theme is

ANYTHING BUT A CARD!!

so get your thinking caps on & join in the fun!

I decided to make a gift card holder, that comes in many forms of cutting files. It also comes in a file so you can print it out & hand cut it out! I used the SVG file along with 'Jenson' my Ecraft.


I've left the name plate blank, only because Katie wants to use it for her friend. So I thought she could write her name in!
