Cozy Reindeer

Mornin', y'all!  Last week totally got away from me and I have a feeling it's going to be a sprint for the next couple of months.  We're going to be moving to North Carolina in January or February, so we're looking at houses online right now and have a trip planned down there to see some in person, then we'll be taking Ryan on his first plane ride all the way to Texas and both of those things are happening after Thanksgiving and well before Christmas!  (We're doing Ryan's first Christmas at home.)  So anyway, I'll sneak off to my craft room as much as I can, but I might be a little spotty on posting stuff here.

But I do have a card for today!


I usually do scrapbook pages on Mondays but I didn't want to let this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches go by without making something:


Scrapbook layout will come later this week.  Anyway, I think this also works for the Paper Players' CAS challenge:


I think that reindeer looks very warm and cozy in his sweater.  And check out the Just Add Ink challenge:


R is for reindeer!  And this is the maiden voyage for my Merry Patterns stamp set; it was a special from SU! in September and October.

Considering all the pies I plan to make this week, Ryan and I really need to get to the gym today.  Happy Thanksgiving week everyone, and cheers!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Merry Patterns
Ink:  Old Olive, Basic Black
Paper:  Old Olive, Whisper White, Merry Little Christmas DSP
Accessories:  Pearls

I like this a lot, Christy! I'll confess that my card was 'a maiden voyage' for Merry Patterns too! It looks fabulous using the Old Olive/Black colourway! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players this week.

Super reindeer. Very nice. Great Christmas card! I love the background with what looks like twinkling stars.

This is beautifully designed Christy! I love how you placed the delicate fir branches at the corners and there in the middle is the rugged up deer. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

That stag in the sweater is so fun and I'm lovin' the color combo with green and black plus the pine boughs are perfect accents! Thanks for playing along over at The Paper Players Challenge this week!
