Christmas in March!

Well, with the weather we are having at the moment, it could well be Christmas, but my post title actually refers to my DT card for this week’s challenge at Passion for Promarkers! The theme is ‘From Around The World’ and we are being sponsored by Clearly Besotted Stamps


who are giving away this fabulous ‘Going Places’ stamp set as the prize. Do pop along to the challenge Blog to see all the lovely DT cards.


I had a good rummage through my craft stash and was getting a bit stressed as I had nothing which seemed relevant to the theme this week and then I remembered this stamp that I had bought before Christmas and had not got around to using. As reindeers are not indigenous to the UK, I thought I would use this cute fella!
