Its beginning to look at lot like Christmas......

Hello and thank you for stopping by today! Hope you've been having a lovely weekend. Its was a "food shopping" kind of morning, then a "clothes for the colder months" shopping kind of afternoon, so haven't been anywhere near my craft desk today, but will tomorrow. Despite being in my forties now, I am still a child when it comes to watching fireworks and we are very lucky in that our house is at the top of a hill that overlooks where there is a big firework display every year. So we have been out in the back garden, this evening, wrapped up snuggly and warm and with a mug of tea in hand.....and after the display, back indoors in the warm in two seconds flat!
So onto my card, and this was made last weekend, I have used another of the gorgeous Pollycraft Lil Dumplings, this one was available as a freebie for a short while.....isn't he a sweetie! Have used the trusty promarkers to colour this and added glossy accents to the nose and wording. The papers are from a Bo Bunny stack called Summer Fresh....but I thought they had a year round appeal to them (found this pad in Oyster stamps shop for £3.50 - bargin!!)  The candi and button are from stash and the bit that looks like a fish tail is the bottom end of an Xcut star shaped die.
I would like to enter this into these challenges:
abc christmas challenge - V for Vixen ( hope that the Reindeer costume will suffice
simon says stamp - anything goes
pink gem - Christmas is coming
allsorts - Crhistmas cheer

Off to bed soon, but will do some blog visiting in the tomorrow....busy day ahead as we are doing a winter fayre next weekend, so plenty to do!
