It's only two weeks away! Christmas that is! And to be honest I'm all ready for it - Christmas food such as Cake and Pudding and Mincemeat made and being fed with Brandy ready for the big day - presents are bought, yet to be wrapped, cards have been made and sent, house is decorated so what's left - I know - make more cards!  

I'm joining in with two challenges with this card - the Library Challenge is fast becoming a favourite as it really is a challenge - I'm sure I have that annual somewhere in the attic that they shop for this month's inspiration!

Rupert Bear Annual 1965 - I had this Nan used to buy me one every Christmas (right up until I was 35!!)

I'm also joining in with Sweet Stampin Christmas challenge which is critters.
Merry Little Christmas - which is Anything Goes 

I've used a cute set I found at the bottom of my stash - I'm not sure where it came from or its name but it has some lovely animal images which work well with the sentiment in the set.  I started off my card by using Waterfront stamp set by SU for the snow and the trees.  I used a die cut to cut out the two green trees - they are actually in manuscript paper as the Rupert annual started me off singing that theme song!  Ahh - I couldn't get it out of my head!

I coloured in the little reindeer with Tri Spectrum Noir pens and added some Tri Spectrum glitter in Harvest Moon which shows up really dark.  I then added some shiny red gems and added the sentiment at the bottom.

This is adorable - love Rudolph's shiny red nose! He's so cute all caught up in the lights. Lovely little scene. Thanks for joining in the Creative Challenge over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'.

"..everyone knows his name.." But apparently they don't! It's just the Brits, it seems! What a fabulous snowy, glittery and fun scene you've created here! Thanks for joining The Library.
