Sweet November Reindeer Games Release

So on Tuesday morning I awoke to message from the amazing Amy Young, me a message from Amy Young!!! Asking if I would be a guest designer on her new release at Sweet November Stamps. Of course I would love too.
So I got out of bed, got showered and was on my second mug of coffee when I started to question if it had actually happened or if I had dreamt it and I had to recheck my phone!!

The new release is called Reindeer Games and features Puddin, Snickerdoodle and Figgy. 

My First Card Uses Puddin and he is feeling rather proud of himself as he has just come first place in the annual reindeer dash

There is a video of the colouring of this on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Then arranged onto the slimline card base as below. For this I used wet glue to allow me time to line it up correctly
