Christmas Card #1

It's been a horrible icky damp drizzly and dark old day today.  I think we've had the lights on all day, so other than housework and making soup for lunches I did very little else!

So I took the opportunity to join in my buddy Jo's new Christmas Kickstart Challenge - I'm definitely going to try to play along each fortnight.  I find that come Christmas I have a few nicely designed cards and then it's a mad rush for the others, so I'm hoping to avoid that this year!

 My little reindeer is from Hunkydory Crafts - coloured with polychromos and popped up on foam pads.  Lots of clear gloss and sparkle added to his nose and antlers.  My stripy DP is a dark navy, not sure if it just looks black here.

And here's Mum's calendar page, oops, only 6 days late ;)
I used some black and red glitter card for lots of sparkle.  Not sure of the make of the fireworks.


  1. What a sweet card, I love that little Rudolph! n see that this new challenge is going to be bad news for my bank account! Thanks so much for playing along at Christmas Kickstart - just think of all the cards we'll have come December! Jo x

  2. A lovely card and such a cute reindeer.

  3. It's been pretty murky here too Lynne, lights and heating on all day, cuddling blankets on laps which means furry kids central heating too!! What a lovely start to your Christmas card pile, cute reindeer and I love the die cut wreath xx

  4. Two wonderful creations, love the Christmas card and what a great idea to make a handmade calendar!
    Thank you so much for joining us this month at Penny Black and More challenge, and hope you come play along again soon!

  5. Your reindeer is so cute! I love the navy stripes, too. Such a nice change from the usual Christmas paper designs. I also managed to get a nice start on my 2019 Christmas cards. Like you, I usually manage to get a few done, and then it's a mad rush to finish the rest. So I've made 27 already since Christmas. Pretty proud of myself. Now if I can just keep steadily plodding along on them...
