Christmas Club Challenge #11 - Humour

Hi Crafters,

Happy Sunday!
Just so you know what day it is, lol.

 I struggled a little trying to find something that fitted the theme. My first choice is further down my post as this is my sense of humour I'm afraid but not to everyone's taste so then I had second thoughts and decided on this rubber stamp from Whipper Snapper.

Rubber Stamp - Whipper Snapper Designs - All Tangled Up
Coloured with Promarkers
Papers - Craft Sensations - Vintage Christmas
& First Edition - Christmas Wishes
Unbranded Scalloped Frame Die
Cheery Lynn Snowflake Dies
Sizzix Tab Die
Sentiment Stamp - Crafters Companion - Rudolph & Friends Set

The wood background paper had a lovely copper foiling on the grain so I went with that colour for my snowflakes too. I added some glossy accents to the Christmas lights and Rudolph's nose.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
CHNC Every Saturday - #491 ATG Christmas
Christmas Craft Creations - Use a Die Cut
Sweet Stampers - #44 Animals/Birds
Sparkles Monthly Challenge - #128 Use a Real Stamp (no digi)
Colour Crazy Challenge - #20 Colouring Challenge

And this is my first offering that was relegated to the 'not sure' pile.
It's a digital download from CraftsUprint.

And with that I will let you enjoy your Sunday x.

Well, I must say I do like the first one best, but they are both very funny!
That reindeer stamp is great. I think I have seen this as a sample card at the paper craft store in the net village. She has a wide selection of stamps and classes.
I remember I thought this stamp was so fun!

Love your colouring here. The shading is spot on!

When I read you post I had to scroll down and yes it made ma smile Lorraine, in fact I though immediately of 'Life of Brian' - when we had our family Zoom quiz the other evening I was trying to explain that movie to a couple of the (grown up) Grandchildren who had no idea what we were all laughing about when it can up in a question.
