Finally a Christmas card!

 Hi everyone. I hope you're all well and happy. I'm sorry I haven't posted for a while. I had planned to post more often as I'd be able to make more cards in my new craft room but my MS obviously didn't know this and has been misbehaving.
Before I tell you about my card I just want to mention my blog friend Annie. Her blog has had a really big problem so much so that she's had to start it all over again! So if you were a follower of aussie aNNie and her blog The Journey Is The Start click HERE to get to her blog and become a follower again.      

I've made a few cards of this design. The card uses Wild Rose Studio's Santa and Rudolph stamp and I got colouring inspiration, especially for Rudolph, from Kate's blog Downrightcrafty. I loved how she coloured his fur so I've tried, that's Tried, to colour him similarly. I hope you like it.
