Yippee! there is another set of Make it Snappy's at Bugaboo Stamps. Check out the creations the DT made here

and here's mine :

Isn't this the perfect Christmas card for a man? No angels, or fairies, or cute furry creatures all covered in snow and sparkles. Just good strong reindeer (or moose pretending to be reindeer? LOL!)

The image of this cute trio has been coloured using Copics and a white gel pen, and the papers are both sides of some of last year's Bo Bunny. A couple of stars and flat back pearls as embellies and there you go - it just shows you if the image is fabulous enough you don't need a ton of papers, techniques and embellishments to make an awesome card - don't you agree.

As usual, here are those handy links:
