21st Day of Advent

Today I picked up my daughter who promptly comes home, eats here way through the food cupboard ( say aah for starving students!lol) and goes out with her brother! I am so excited she is home, love spending time with her, and am looking forward to the next few days while she is around.
We are off out to friends for drinks in a while, so thought I had better post before I have a drink *hic*, so this one is a bit earlier than normal.
Yesterday's winner for the blog candy is CRAFTYCAROL
Congratulations and please email me your address
Todays Christmas piece is a card! Yah! I made another one, so I have made several now. Haven't counted but they haven't gone to waste. LOL!
I ran some gold card through my Big Shot on a snowflake embossing tile, and then did the same with the Grungeboard Reindeer and bauble. I distress inked the reindeer, and the bauble, and then rubbed gold pearlescent mica powder paint over them. A few itsy bitsy beads on the top of the bauble and hung it on the antlers. Poor Rudolph looks a bit bemused! Not the best picture as the gold card reflected in the scanner, and showed up all the bad bits!
On Christmas Day I shall give away a HUGE BUNCH OF GOODIES as a Christmas present for a lucky blogger. You will get a chance to comment as I shall wait a week before choosing the winner, as I know you are all busy in the run up to Christmas.
From tomorrow I shall be giving away 5 PIECES OF CANDY everyday until Christmas Day, either stamps or ribbons or inks or whatever I can find !
Please post on your blog or website, and comment, and if you are not a follower add yourself!
See you tomorrow

Have a great time with your daughter - it's always special when they come home from uni. Mine use to arrive with a big empty case so she could make sure the cupboards were well and truly empty when she went back.

Love the deer and the effect you have achieved.

Lovely card Jennie:) Have now added the bauble to my blog, when I first tried I didn't realise it was a case of right-click until after I'd put the link :-/

I've admired this raindeer on Tim's tag already, he's almost regal, when you make him up like that. I blogged your candy here. Thanks for the chance!
Bye, Kitty

I go away for the weekend and come back to two stunning works of art by you -brilliant. I so love those hangers. I bought some from your and was quite surprised - pleasantly - at their size and quality - they are lovely aren't they.

I just adore the grungeboard reindeer - you technique has definitely 'made it your own'
