Reindeer Games

Hello Friends ...

Today I have a card to share that I pulled together the other evening in order to play along in the Christmas with the Cuties Challenge.  Their theme is Rudolph and Friends (feature a deer).  I have had all three of these dies for several years and it was fun to put them together on one card.  

Rudolph is an old Cottage Cutz die called Deer w/Wreath (#283)

Tree is by Impression Obsession called Fir Trees (DIE-084)

Santa's Sleigh is also by Impression Obsession (DIE-083)

I created the background by simply sponging what ink was left on one of my TH oxide blue ink sponge daubers and added Stickles 'waterfall' for the falling snow.  Though a bit difficult to see, I also tore a strip of white card stock to created the snow that Rudolph is standing in.

  8. Oh Darlene, what a beautiful array of cards since the last time I commented. Things have been a little crazy on my neck of the woods, leaving me no time for crafty related fun. Hoping it will settle down soon again. In the meantime, I have just scrolled back and I'm in awe of your beautiful cards. Thank you for the inspiration, my friend, it is badly needed right about now, as my mojo seems to have left me.
    Enjoy your weekend.
