Oh deer...

Good morning ...welcome  to the weekend! Another Christmas card from me, this time it's for the new challenge at Sweet Stampin' which is to make a shaped card. This is the second card I made...and I'm not particularly happy with it, this isn't how I imagined it at all! I like the cute Woodware reindeer and the dies I have used but somehow not the end result... but It's better than the first card:) - in it's favour it is shaped and it is a card!
Thanks for looking and I promise you that there is much fabulousness to be seen on the Challenge blog, my teamies have come up trumps, so just click here to see what they have created and to share your own lovely stamped and shaped designs! You could be this week's lucky prizewinner - a £10 voucher courtesy of our lovely sponsor Crafts U Love.
Have a great weekend.
