Pike's Playground Ho Ho Ho Challenge and Send a Smile 4 Kids

Over at Pike's Playground we have been challenged to make one more Christmas card for the Ho Ho Ho Challenge.  In addition to my OWH cards, I've just started making cards for Send a Smile 4 Kids, a charity which provides handmade cards for children who are inpatient at children's hospitals.  The cards go to kids 0-19 years of age.  Apparently not too many cards come in for the older (teenage) boys and girls, so I am trying to gear my cards for that age group.  I think the Doodle Dragon images are so much fun and will be perfect for that age group.  The Christmas card deadline for this charity is December 1st, so I am finishing up my Christmas cards for them in order to mail them on Monday. When I saw the Pike's Playground challenge I did decide to make one more card!  I've also included all of the cards I've made for my Smile 4 Kids box using Doodle Dragon images in this post as well.

The card I made for the challenge is the first one below using a digi I just purchased during the Black Friday sale.  I am totally in love with this image - I think the reindeer footprints in the snow caused by the reindeer-footprint tire treads is just hysterical.
