Reindeer Games

OMG!!! If you read this past Sunday's post, you will already ready know that I have been down with a nasty cold. It wasn't until I was writing that post that I quickly found out just how bad this virus had sent me for a loop. I didn't post my card for the current challenge at Crafty Cardmakers; and I'm the hostess this week!!!! If I was Lin, I would give me a stern talking to......Yikes!
The current challenge is #78 A Shaped Card Featuring a Reindeer or Two and there is still time to play along with us. You have until November 10th to upload your card to the blog post. Now, please, please, PLEASE be sure that you make a shaped card and not just a square or rectangle card. I would hate to have to disqualify all your hard work from the draw.

Without further delay, here is my card:

I tried to get a good shot of the glitter I added to the snowflakes.

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!
