Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Evening all

I feel a bit like poor old Rudolph tonight with his bright red nose. You would not believe how cold it is here. Our council is now considering calling in the army to help clear the snow and ice, we've got so much of it. A white Christmas is nice, as long as it snows on Christmas Eve and then disappears. There are 10 inch icicles on our rabbit hutch - we've just managed to catch him so we can bring him inside.

This is a card I've made with a stamp I've had for a couple of years now. I wasn't sure the card was going to work but I think it looks ok. I've used diamond glaze on Rudolph's nose and bells but you can't see it so well in the photo. It looks dead cool in real life.

My recipe:
Image - I'm sorry I can't tell you who produced this stamp, I've had it for a while. I think it might be Anitas or something.
I used Promarkers to colour it with some Diamond Glaze on his nose and bells
The papers are DCWV and the cardstock is, as usual, Coredinations
The little reindeers are from Hobbycraft
Pin, bells, ribbon and jumprings from stash
Tools: Cuttlebug and round and scalloped Nesties
Sentiment - Cuddly Buddly
Gold Glitter

Thanks for looking. Hope you're not too cold where you are.

Great to see Rudolph making an appearance, hope he'll remember us on the 24th. That is a really lovely Christmassy card. The little pins and bells are so cute.
Thank you for entering the BTC&G December challenge and Good Luck.
