I've used the cute image this week called Reindeer Games - I love the expression on both their faces!!

This is one of my oldest stamp, it must be for 9/8  years old amd I don't think I've used it for 7 years.  It is from Impression Impressions but think it is now 'Off Sale' - I coloured it three times with three different coloues of Distress Inks  to add more texture and depth.
I thought of adding a star at the top of the tree but spotted a diamante number 1 left from a set and decided yow to add it at the top of the tree and add it to LIM 's challenge this week which theme is Numbers..
