St Lukes Charity Challenge

Well that's another month gone by, it's the first of December and I've just realised that there are no chocolates in my Advent calendar yet - maybe just as well because I ought not to eat them anyway!!  Being December means also that it is the start of another challenge for St Luke's charity blog and the theme this time is 'Let it Snow' and I really hope the snow stays firmly on Christmas cards only and doesn't fall on us like it did last year. My card this time is in the LIM style with just a small strip of snowflake backing paper, an image stamped using Lovely as a Tree by Stampin Up and I added a reindeer in the foreground using a free stamp which arrived with Craft Stamper magazine.  I used the whole stamp for the greeting and masked off the circular part so that the reindeer stood in front of the trees.  Plenty of glitter was added for the snow on the ground but I'm not sure it shows up too well on the scanned image.


  1. like this one Val - especially the way you have added the reindeer, and the glitter does show up!

  2. Lovely card Val, and yes the glitter does show especially if you click on it for a closer look. I like the way you masked the raindeer.

  3. This is just gorgeous - I love all the glitter and like how you've masked the deer off to use it differently.
    I'm with you on the snow front - I'm hoping I haven't jinxed the weather in setting this theme ;-)
    Thanks so much for joining us again at St Luke's this month - we do appreciate your support.

  6. I can see the glitter & lovely real sparkle that snow gives in sunshine when I click on your image. Love the way you have used that reindeer for both the sentiment & in your main composition. Strikingly unusual colours too.
