Hello everyone - it's the last challenge of the year at Crafty Calendar and the theme is White on White.  It was my turn to host the Challenge this month and I just lurve white on white so this was soooo up my street.... again.  As usual I've sprinkled loads and loads of glitter on this one, much to the maestro's horror 'cos he's only just managed to divest himself of the last lot!

 The maestro couldn't get rid of the purple hue on here but I can assure you that this really is white apart from a little blue ink on the sky above the reindeer.  I think I'm getting a little out of practice with my digis at the moment, but I do enjoy using die cuts - are you ready for the inevitable long list??
