Late for Rudolph Day

Oh dear, I'm late for Rudolph Day this month, because on the 25th I was away at my Mum's, with neither internet nor my crafting goodies. Anyway I'm home and playing catch up now,  so I've had to combine several challenges for this card so that I don't miss too many - I know a lot of challenges are low on entries at the moment and I do love to show my support for as many of my favourites as possible!

For this card I had a rummage through my bits box, where I keep all those stamped images, die cuts and backgrounds that didn't quite make it onto the card they were intended for, and came up with lots of Christmassy bits including these two stamped and punched gingerbread men and a die cut snowflake. (Yes, red snow, why not? It's reflecting the light from Rudolph's nose, so there!)

A few pieces of washi tape, a sentiment stamped with an old Studio G mini set and hey presto, and almost instant Christmas card!

I am sharing this with
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Use some washi tape or anything goes

Hahahahaha! I love your red snowflake comment Jane - it made me giggle but it makes perfect sense too! A truly delightful card and all the better for being made from bits box items. Those gingerbread men look scrummy - now why hasn't Rudolph taken a bite out of one of them? ;-) Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx
