'Reindeer Rides'

This is my first post for today, please pop back later to see my creation for The Stamping Chef! xx

We had some fabulous entries last week over at Inky Impressions. Make sure if you entered, you pop over & check to see if you won or are in our Top3!
This week we have a fab challenge for you...


so get out those long neglected shaped cards & join in with us. You don't need an Inky Impressions image to enter, but if you do use one you will get entered in the draw twice for the prize. Which is 4 digi images of the winners choice!!!

I just love making Christmas cards, so I took this opportunity to make another one for my little collection that is slowly building.

I just loved colouring this fab image in, there's so much detail to colour. I think it took me about 3 hours to colour, but I was so relaxed after it was well worth it!
