CHNC challenge 394

I have blog candy here - why not take a look, tell others and link to try and win it.

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 394 -  please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of 'use a die cut or punch'.

I have to confess that, having got ahead for a few weeks with my designs for my CHNC challenges, I hadn't actually made anything for this challenge. It's been a very busy week with very little time to craft or blog, with John having four hospital appointments in 8 days, each one taking up a lot of time waiting for transport.

So, not having much time to put this card together, I resorted to a ready made die cut, the rather majestic looking red and turquoise reindeer from an old Kanban kit, with a background of red mirror with holographic stars, wrapped with a couple of pieces of grosgrain ribbon, with the addition of the circular greeting and some snowflakes from The Works.

This is the best photo I could get (if I can do better in the morning, then I'll add another).

  10. Very pretty! So glad you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I hope you'll join us again soon. I want to leave you with the inspiration of God's Word in 2 Peter 3:9 which says, "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance." Have a blessed week.
