I still believe...

Hi friends!

You'd think we were already in December what with all of the Christmas cards I've been posting lately. And while I'm shifting gears a bit today, it's still looking an awful lot like Christmas. ;)
Today we are actually kicking off sneak peeks of the new clear stamp release at Some Odd Girl. And I'll warn ya now... they are CA-UTE! :)

The first little Christmas Oddie starting everything off is Deer Mae. With her jingle bell necklace, little party dress and festive reindeer antlers she kinda makes me think of that fun girl at the office party. You know the one... sure she may be drinking a little too much eggnog and having a little too much fun but nobody minds because it's Christmas, LOL! :)
As I was searching for the right papers to pair with Mae I found my paper pack of "I believe" papers from My Mind's Eye. I loved the deer in the logo so much that I decided to recycle the packaging a bit and use the whole logo as my card sentiment. Since it was so large I chose to keep the rest of the design nice and simple so that Mae didn't have to compete with anything else as the cards focal point.

There are chances of winning some very cute Christmas stamping goodies just by leaving comments on the SOG challenge blog... you won't want to miss out on that! Plus all the eye candy from the DT is just off the charts. You'll be humming the tune to Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer before ya know it! ;)
