Phindy's Place Challenge #72 - Christmas is creeping up on us...

It's feeling very Autumnal right now and I have realised that I need to get cracking on the Christmas cards, you may have noticed a few being made over the last week or two:).  This week's challenge at Phindy's Place should help you out, we want everyone to make a Christmas card or creation and share it with us.  You don't have to use one of Phindy's images but if you do you get two chances to win the random prize of $5 to spend in store.  
I've chosen Sleigh Ride, which is my all-time favourite image and those of you who follow my blog are probably bored of seeing this one lol!  Before I became a member of Phindy's DT she drew a gorgeous Christmas Colt and I begged her to draw a horse and sleigh, preferably pulled by a Fjord horse as I own one of these beautiful animals.  Phindy came up with this amazing image and I have been her biggest fan ever since:).  It is simply coloured with Copics here, the DP is by Memory Box as is the die that cut the snowflake border.
My card is for the following challenges:
Simon Says - Sing It - Jingle Bells with a bit of poetic licence, this is a two horse sleigh but close enough lol!
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
Digital Tuesday - celebrate the season (winter)
Woodware USA - happy holidays
Paperplay Challenges - punches & dies
Creatalicious - anything goes

Christmas Cards all year round - something at least a year old (3rd year I've used this image!)
