You know Dasher and Dancer...

and Prancer and Vixen
you know Comet and Cupid
and Donder and Blitzen
but do you recall the most famous reindeer of all...?

Well, it's official... Christmas is only a week away! Hope you're ready for it! :)
And as much as I would like to sit and chat about it all, I've got work to get ready for so I'll be keeping this one short and sweet.
Remember how I was trying to make a simple card yesterday and it didn't quite happen? Well, my card today certainly succeeded in being quick and easy! I started with a pre-made kraft card base and the rest pretty much came together from me cleaning off my desk, LOL! Not only did I put the Cuttlebug to use but I also finally remembered/unearthed this great reindeer border punch that my mom got me for my b-day. ;)
Once I got the card all together it was looking very boy-ish so I had to find a stamp that would fit that vibe. When I came across this little Pure Innocence guy and his pup he let me know straight away that he would be perfect for this one and I believed him. Man do I love it when cute and quick go hand in hand! LOL

Take care my friends and I'll see ya back here in 24. :)

Hi Amy. I love this card. So cute! I really love the snow effect behind the craft deers..Too cute! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I went out to start the car and it wasn't frosted over so I was happy. Finished up my hair and went back out to a blizzard. It was awesome! lol...It has stopped for now, but we are suppose to have more later. Have a great rest of your weekend. Hugs, Lisa g
