MMC 88: Christmas Greetings Reindeer

Merry Monday's challenge this week is to create a Christmas card with an animal on it. I decided to make a reindeer with my owl punch! I love that the punch can create so many other things.

stamps: Grateful Greetings (retired)
ink: garden green
paper: Tree Trimmings dsp, real red, crumb cake, sorft suede, black, white and very vanilla cardstock, red glimmer paper
tools: decorative label punch, owl punch, 1/2" circle punch, sponge daubers

I made it so that my reindeer is holding up the sign. Isn't he cute? The card itself is kept simple with some pieces of retired Christmas paper applied "randomly." 

I'll keep it short and sweet...because December is, well, December. 

Christmas sometimes feels as though it starts Dec 1st, and it ends sometime in January... friends in from out of town, pot luck parties, exchanging gifts, office parties, relatives, baking, decorating, snow storms, shoveling, Christmas crafting, and then trying to fit December birthdays into it all!? 

May the madness of Christmas let you stop every now and then to breathe!
