CHNC challengte 102: Deer, deer, me ... let's see a reindeer or two

You all certainly pulled the stops out to produce so many beautiful girlie cards - lots of different styles and ideas - I enjoyed looking at them all.

I wonder if you've made all your cards yet? I've been making Christmas cards since before the start of this year - yes, straight after last Christmas .... and I still need to make more and time is racing by nineteen to the dozen!

If you've still got some to make, then I hope you'll be able to find a picture of a reindeer, a stamped image or whatever and join in ... and if you have finished all your cards then why not get a head-start with next year's!

Please remember to have a look at my CHNC page on facebook - if you do go there please join in by clicking 'like' so that I know that you've been there. During the week you'll find updates and hints of the next challenge - please feel free to chat there - I know that some of you do already - thank you. Let's see if we can get at least 100 'likes' by the end of the year.

Before I get on to today's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 101. Unfortunately, there could only be one winner and this is the result of using

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! 
 If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps   at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT   for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug

For my card I've used the Bugaboo 'reindeer skate' image kindly supplied by Bugaboo Stamps - you can read more about my card on My Crafty Outlook here:

Now it's over to you. As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques, as long as the end result is a Christmas card - and this week please make make any Christmas card you like as long as it features a reindeer.
