Christmas Card #3

My Christmas Card this week is another for a few challenges.

The first challenge is ABC Christmas.  This week the challenge is B for Black and White.  The sponsor for this challenge is the fabulous Dustin Pike and there is even a freebie from Dustin so there is no excuse not to enter.  I've used this fabby reindeer image by Dustin and coloured with Promarkers.  I have followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday and am also entering it into Cute Card Thursday which is 1,2,3  I have used one paper, 2 stamps and 3 embellishments. 

Now here's my apology!!  Sorry ladies at Bah Humbug I know I haven't missed a week since you started your challenges and I haven't missed this week either but I am rather ashamed of my feeble effort.  When I saw that the challenge this week was 'crackers'  I thought that won't be too difficult but after searching high and low, through all my Christmas stash I haven't found one single cracker on any of my stamps or papers.  I did however, find these brads that I won from you and this one is supposed to be a cracker (it looks more like a boiled sweet to me lol!!)  Sorry, I promise I will try harder  next week.

Debs it's a fabulous card and I know just how you feel, because exactly the same thing happened to me. I have so many stamps that it would take me a week to count them but have I any with a cracker on - No! It's Irene's fault - she chose this one!!!
Anyway I love the way you have sneaked a cracker brad on the corner - wish I had thought of that.
Next week will be easy peasy I promise, but I'm not giving the game away or I'll get done!

I must say I think you're ever so inventive with the brad & good thinking. Love the colouring of the image - those highlights really make the hooves, saddle & nose look shiny.

Hi Debs, am finally getting around to commenting on last week's challenge, albeit belatedly but the events following surgery turned out to be not as straightforward as I'd anticipated so only just up to sitting at computer. Anyway ... no need to apologise 'cos I think your use of the cracker brad was genius ... really thinking outside the box so well done! Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
