My First Christmas Challenge - On Purpose!!!

Hey there, my dears!  How are you this fine day?
So Christmas 2013 is over.  I made some pretty cool Christmas cards and gifts - but being true to form - I waited until last minute to make my Christmas cards.  So I spent HOURS trying to finish so that I could mail them out BEFORE December 25.  They were mailed before the 25th but that didn't mean that people received them before the 25th.  :-) 
So I vowed to keep up and make cards throughout the year so that I can be ready and relaxed next Christmas season.  
I want to enter the ABC Christmas Challenge for every challenge.  That is my goal...not my goal.  Of course my ADD will kick in - and I may forget but I am going to try my hardest! :-)
Their challenge this time is super easy - Anything Christmas here I go:
 Isn't this cute little guy just precious?  He is so stinkin' cute!  I adore him!!! This little reindeer is a free digi from Sliejke.  She called him Funny Rudolph.  She has so really awesome digis and they are ALL FREE!! Go check her out please!  
I printed him out onto watercolor paper and colored it in with Twinkling H2Os.  He is soooo cute!
 Card Details:
Base - SU Riding Hood Red
DP - DCWV Christmas Cardstock Stack
Buttons - They are wooden buttons from SU called Designer Naturals that I bought over a year ago.
Twine - Divine Twine Red Solid
Sentiment Stamp - Studio G
The "snow" is something new that I just purchased last week from Stamp and Create.  It is the Liquid Applique.  That stuff is so cool!  It is so puffy and perfect and easy to use.  You just kind of dot it around.  It comes out like glue.  Then you heat set it and see it turn puffy.  I was impressed!

I am adding my cards to these other challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge - A is for Anything Christmas Goes
Jingle Belles - Something Old, Something New - old: buttons; new: Liquid Applique
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge  - Winter Weather
Crafty Hazelnut's Extra Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes Christmas
