Aud Sentiments Challenge #17 Holidays!

Oh my what a week I have had - best not talk about it as something else might happen!!!!

Can you believe we are on to our 17th challenge at Aud Sentiments - please check out the blog to see who won.

Our challenge this fortnight is to use the word Holidays in your sentiment - ideal for this time of year. We are lucky to have the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps sponsoring us.

Yes you can win seven of their unique digis. I have just checked out their cute snowmen range - I want them!!!! The team were lucky enough to have our choice of the Bobblehead Christmas range - I used the reindeer.

I am so pleased with how this card turned out. I have coloured my reindeer with Promarkers and layered him on to some paper I have had for years.

The border is from a Polka Doodles CD called Jingle Jangle - note to self use this again!!! I made my own sentiment using a free font called Frosty. The snowflakes were made using silver miri card and silver glitter card and an Xcut punch.

I hope you will check out my team mates creations for some more inspiration - their links are on my left sidebar.

Finally, I am entering this card in the following challenges.

Totally Gorjuss - Sketch,

Delicious Doodles - Use a digi,

Passion for Promarkers - Anything Goes,

My Time To Craft - Reindeer,

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Christmas Card,
