Reindeer Games

A month later and I am still doing Christmas? The really sad thing is I haven't even photographed them all and they are piled up on the computer, gathering doggie dust. I haven't even started any Valentine's and certainly no spring as I don't think it's EVER coming. The Deep Freeze is here. And the slug stole my heating pad for his feet.

This red is more burgundy in real light. I loved using this color as it isn't that "in-your-face" red most use at Christmas. The ink is Distress on the edges and some generic stuff I had for the stamped images. The dreaded crappy dollar bin glitter glue on the flowers (my signature crap this season) and I used a glue pen for the image, then sprinkled ultra fine clear glitter on the reindeer and beyond. Acrylic accents was added to the phrase and again, this card stock was kinda cheapo, so it warped a bit. But it is passable. Scrap of ribbon, pop the layers and use those scraps. Again, this is a card map that is open to any season or occasion. Make sure you dig out those corner punches you forgot you had-too many think all they have is the Cuttlebug folders anymore and I am personally sick of them.


  1. I'm with you on the red at christmas... i'm over red and green cards. Like your image, had a chuckle at your commentary and agree with you about the punches.

    Hope all is well.

  2. Love the glittery deer...we can all still use some Christmas card pics too!

  3. Love the glitter and it showed up great on the card.


Thank you for stopping by and sitting a spell with me and mine. I hope you take away a smile!
