My Time To Craft 'Make It DL Size' Challenge

Oh dear I have completely lost tracked of the days just lately. I was really unwell on Friday and that has thrown me a day and then I just noticed my card hadn't published for this week's My Time To Craft challenge only to realise that it was not only Sunday but I hadn't even written! Yet my card has been made for nearly two weeks, what do I do with myself, don't ask David as I am sure I know what he would say lol

Ok so this fortnight at My Time To Craft we are asking to see your DL sized cards, I had never made a card this size before until now.  I was at a car boot sale a few weeks ago and picked up this large and I mean large box of Kanban goodies that was all Christmas themed, I actually brought it thinking the kids could have some fun with it, however I ended up keeping quite a few bits and my card is the result. It was super quick to make and I really feel like I cheated. 

I just tried to search for this kit and this particular card seems to have come from a 2011 Christmas Kit. One A4 reindeer sheet is selling for £1.25 and then the card blank is extra. I purchased approximately 50 different sheets, 30 card blanks and 30 sheets of patterned card all from this kit then about the same from an everyday kit and a birthday kit all for.................£3.00 and my mum was telling me off after I paid for not haggling with the women lol, wait until I tell her what a bargain I got.   

All from Kanban 2011 Christmas Kit

So now it is time to pop over and see what the other ladies made and join in with the challenge.
