Reindeer Lucy

Reindeer Lucy (3)

Evening all.  We have been enjoying a nice relaxing Father’s day here in the UK. Hubby started the day with a 10k run, then we had a lovely pub lunch. I even got a little time to craft this afternoon and we are currently snuggled up watching Pirate’s of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.

Anyhoo, the fruit of this afternoons crafting is another Christmas card for my stash and I just had to use this cutie Reindeer Lucy from CC Designs:

Fairy Twila

Fairy Twila (5)

Afternoon all. This week at the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends FB Group we are being sponsored by the fabulous CC Designs and if you are a member of the group there is a fabulous discount to be had.

CC Designs were one of the stores I bought from many many years back when I started crafting and they have a huge amount of adorable stamps so it took a while to decide what to use. In the end I decided on Fairy Twila:
