WMSC92 - Christmas Reindeer
It's been an easy day for me so far. I spent a few hours in the garden planting some flowers I picked up at the local garden center. In the past I've planted hundreds of bulbs only to be out smarted by deer, squirrels and chipmunks - apparently these are tasty snacks for critters. I found some Irises and something called a Toad Lilly that start from roots so I thought I would give them a try.
Today I'm playing along with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. This week's sketch is by Mischief Maker, Karin Åkesdotter. Karen's designs are always well thought out - she has a great eye for design and space on her layouts. You can check out her blog by clicking on her name.
I turned this sketch into a Christmas card. I stamped the background on PTI kraft paper using the snowflake from Join Us. Next, lots and lots of layers for the focal point of the reindeer from2011 Holiday Ornaments. I added a row of tiny bows and jingle bells as well as a few tiny red gems on the snowflakes because let's face it, I'm addicted to bling.
Thanks so much for stopping by for a look! Have a beautiful day!
