Christmas Card No 8

Although I'm posting a Christmas card today, my thoughts are on Birthday - Colin turned 17 today and has his first driving lesson in half an hour.  Happy Birthday Colin and enjoy your lesson - think you will!

Back to my card now, and it uses a newer release Bugaboo Reindeer - I have so many of these reindeer now and I love them all.  He is resting on some LOTV paper then finished off with some twine/ribbon stuff and a button.

Challenges;
ABC Christmas - C for Chocolate Creams
SSW2 - Super sketch - sorry it's not a hexagon, but I don't have those dies. Jx

Happy birthday to Colin and I hope the driving lesson went well!! Our boys both passed a few years ago and I still get filled with dread whenever they drive (every day!!). Your card is fab Janice, that reindeer is great and you've reminded me about those papers...must dig them out!! xx

Happy Birthday to your son and good luck with the driving lesson. Our eldest had one on his 17th and it's become an expectation with all the others since.

Well done on another lovely Crimbo card for the box.

Many happy returns to Colin, bet he loved his first driving lesson - it was a long time ago but I can still remember mine!
Good to see the Queen of Bugaboo still reigns supreme! Are you sure this is only 8? I thought you must be close to finishing up by now!!
And OMG I can't keep up with all the comments required over here lately, no wonder Clinton's Cards went out of business!! All fabulous dahling!!

HappyBirthday To Colin, Argh 17 Jake will be that too soon. I have already been on a couple of private roads with him. Glad I did as what a waste of money the first lesson would have been as hes a bit rubbish at getting started!! Love the card, Im way behind now with this stupid bug Ive had, Love Hazelxox
