If you are on the hop you should have arrived here from the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge blog.
You need to see my card and read all about how I made it before I tell you my letter and where you have to go next lol ,,,,,, :-)

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge I used this gorgeous Wee and Reindeer stamp designed by Norma Fickel for Whiff of Joy I coloured the image with Copics and decoupaged Rudolph. I inked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink and used a Glitz Roller Doodle vine along the side. This was inked with Hero Arts Latte chalk ink . The flower is my FAVE Tim Holtz Prima Poinsettia Limited Edition ,,these make a fabulous christmas gift for a crafty friend :-) The papers are Basic Grey from the Wassail and the Kraft Basic paper pads. I also used a Martha Stewart Corner Holly Punch, to be honest I dropped a blob of glossy accents which I used to stick the Robins Nest Dew Drops right at the bottom of the image ,, so I had to stick some holly there too lol,, oohh and Rudolph has a drop n his nose too :-) For the sentiment I used a Tim Holtz Sizzix die Ticket strip and a Tim Holtz Odds and ends cling stamp. Phew ,,,, think that's all !! :-)

From here you need to go to the fabulously talented CHRIS'S blog to see her fantastic card :-) the letter you need from me is 'C'

Now for my candy ,,Heidi at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away this gorgeous Wee with Reindeer stamp to one of the links on my blog You MUST enter the challenge and then come back here and leave me a direct link to your card with the blue frog.

I used a lovely Whiff of Joy Santa with Gifts image that was a stamped image from Cathy :-)I coloured him with copics and couldn't resist a few dabs of dark pink ,, !! :-) The papers are Papermania and blue coredinations. I used a Martha Stewart around the page snowflake punch. I used star dust stickles, fine glitter and a few gems here and there for sparkle.
