Susie + Vikki's Christmas Club

I'm early for this for once as new challenges are set here each Saturday.  The theme this week is Hot Chocolate.  My little reindeer is actually more chocolate coloured than he looks in the pic.  It took me ages to do this card, it was one of those that I couldn't quite get right.  I'd completed it once but just wasn't happy with it though I couldn't put my finger on what I didn't like, you know how that goes!

Hi Anne, Over the 3.5 years I have worked on the MBA usually all of Saturday and part of Sunday. Every other weekend I gave myself Sunday off if I could. But Jan and Feb this year saw me working on it all Sat and Sun as well as evenings. I do about 30 hours a week on it.

Hi Anne - thanks for the comment on my post, but most of all for the kind tip on cutting the tissue paper with a punch - I had actually tried that but it made it too thick and my punch wouldn't go through it then. Maybe because I was using 120gsm paper??? might try with 80gsm.
