You can't beat pink!

Having suffered with my back for the past couple weeks I have now come down with a really bad cold so yesterday I was unable to do anything at all because I was aching all over and I have just crawled off the sofa now as I hate not being able to do anything.  I'm only hoping I get everything over at once as I do not make a very good patient and I'm beginning to feel sorry for my husband.  I actually coloured this cutie in the other day so all I had to do was just put everything together which I have been able to do.  The digital image is from Louby Loo at Digital Delights and is the adorable Rodney Reindeer which you can find here and at the moment there is 10% off - who says Christmas can't come early?

I have coloured him with my Copics and Prisma pencils and cut him out with a Nestie and layered him onto another Nestie.  The border punch is a MS. The papers are from Nitwits "Mooey Christmas" and I have embossed the deers with my Cuttlebug using a Cart US embossing folder, here's a close up:

I think it goes with the image so well!  As does the charm from my stash:
