Morning all,
Been a tad bit knackered being back at the "day job" and trying to fit everything in so there's not been so many posts this week, but I will get used to it again and back on track.  There's going to be a fair few early nights while that happens though, but the good news is I am sleeping like a baby when my head does hit the pillow!  Now how do you encourage an 11 year old to go to bed earlier...

Enough of my rambling, here's my card:

 I've used "Hello Rudolph" & "Santa & Rudolph" Humphry Christmas stamps from Crafters Companion, stamped onto white linen Papermill Direct card and coloured with Polychromo Pencils.  I punched the images out with a Stampin Up 1 1/4" circle punch and mounted it on their scalloped circle punch.  The papers are a DCWV Christmas stack.  The ribbon is from Sonas Made.

Here are the Polychromo colours:
