January Rudolph challenge

I always leave my christmas cards til it's too late. Ok, I do make the occasional one throughout the year, but I always need to do a last minute rush in December (happens to you too eh?) Anyway, this year, i'm determined to have a nice little stash of crimbo cards all ready. Over at Auntys forum, the 25th of each month will now be Rudolph day. January's challenge is a sketch and the option of a recipe (glitter, button, patterned paper and a stamped image)
So here are my first 2 Rudolph day cards...

Image: Gillian Roberts 'kitten christmas nap' coloured with promarkers
Papers: Stampin Up old olive DSP, Sizzix 'little sizzles - country', & Holly Hobbie christmas joy.
Others:  Woodware leaf punch, SU eyelet border punch, mulberry roses, red seam binding, computer generated sentiment.

I'd like to enter this card at:
Creative inspirations - anything goes (option of flowers)
Craft Us Crazy - The colour RED
Stamping for Pleasure - Rudolph day
The Paper Shelter - anything goes
Christmas cards all year 'round - anything goes


Image: LOTV 'deck the halls' coloured with promarkers
Paper: Sizzix 'little sizzles - country'
Others: kraft, pale blue & gold cardstock, SU eyelet border punch, glitter, ribbon, button & charm from stash.
