Reindeer Games


Today starts the last challenge of 2016 at Crafty Hazel Nut's Christmas Extra Challenge.
Are you ready for Christmas? 
I'm not.  Despite starting in January with my Christmas cards, I still have much to do.
I used my spellbinders dies to create this card shape.  I think I got into a rut with square cards so I am trying to mix it up a bit.
This cute little reindeer is from Bugaboo Stamps and they are sponsoring the challenge.

Winter Card


It's Black Friday.  Are you shopping?  I will be shopping online this year.  I really hate crowds and the hoards of people out on black Friday are really just too much.  Sitting at my computer while wearing my pj's and drinking hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps sounds much more appealing to me.
I'm still making shaped cards.  Earlier this year when I was having neck and shoulder pain it was too difficult for me to do much crafting.  I was able to do some coloring though.  So I inked up lots of my stamps and printed out lots of digi images and sat in front of the tv and colored.  I now have this huge stack of colored images so I trying to get them onto cards.  This is such a backwards process for me since I usually choose my stamp, then pick my papers and card design before I color the images.  When I colored these images up earlier I was just hoping I would find papers in my stash that would coordinate.  So far, I have had pretty good luck.

Fa La La La La



For this card I merged three images from Mo's Digital Pencil.  These little elves just looked like they would be part of a choir to me.
I have kept the card design simple so that it can be mailed.  However, I did add a little white flower soft to the hat trim and a few gems to the holly.

Merriest of Merry Christmas



I'm having fun making shaped cards with my spellbinders dies.  They are super easy to make and is a nice change from my usual square cards.
This little Tilda stamp is going to appear on several cards this year. I have colored her up several times.  I found this great paper stack at Michael's from the Recollections line called Christmas Noel. The papers are a little more modern in colors so I can see another trip to Michael's in my future.
The sentiment stamp is also from Magnolia Stamps. I made a little smudge so I covered it up with an ornament I cut out of one of the pattern papers.  Nobody will ever know...

Thank You For Blessing My Life

I've had this little cute from Sassy Cheryl's colored up for quite awhile. I finally took time today to get a card made.  This is some of my favorite paper. The stripes and the circles are glittery.

Santa's Little Helper



I am feeling a little behind with my Christmas cards even though I have been making them all year.  Thus I used the same image and sketch to create these tow cards.  The only difference is one elf is in red and the other is in green.
This image is Toy Shop Helper from Mo's Digital Pencil.
