A *Wink *Wink Ink Christmas Card

Well it's 'cookie exchange' day at my daughter's and I'm hoping the snow will hold off until I get down there and back!  Oh no ... as I say that I look out the door and see that the rain has changed to snow!  Aaawww ... I might not make it!  Darn!!

Either way, I wanted to share this quick card with you I made this morning using one of my favorite *Wink *Wink Ink images.  I just love this deer and Santa hat ... then when you put them together ... how cute is this!!  (If I do say so myself!!)
(click on image to enlarge)
I have used Windows 7 - Microsoft Word 2010 to superimpose the hats onto my little deer herd.  It's really not that difficult  ... now if I could just figure out how to use my new Photoshop Elements 9 as easily!!  Anyone have helpful hints or links to learn that software?? Please leave me a comment passing them on ... I can use all the help I can get!!

Back to my card . . .  The deer images are PRE-COLORED ... one of the perks of purchasing a *Wink *Wink Ink digi set!  I've used Paper Studio dp, punched a fence with the Martha Stewart fence border punch from brown cs and added MS snowflakes.  I've also added a touch of sparkle on the Santa hats using glue & Deco Art Glamour Dust.

Here are some challenges my card qualifies for:

Stamp Something - December Digi Days
Craft Your Days Away - Punch It Out
Ellephantastic Challenge - Winter/Christmas
Our Daily Bread - Christmas Inspiration
Totally Gorjuss - Snow
Daring Cardmakers - Snow Much More
Digi's With Attitude - Anything Goes
Mami Doodles - Anything Goes
Wags 'n Whiskers - Snowflakes

The snow is still falling but luckily the temperature is staying up at the moment ... oh dear ... decisions, decisions!!  What to do!!

Have a great day in whatever you might be doing!!  Hugs to you all and thanks so much for stopping by today!!
