Jingle all the way!

Good morning!

Well, thankfully we didn't add any new snow yesterday, though the forecast is saying we will get more today and tomorrow. It is too early to start feeling snowed in I tell ya! And today I am back at work so I actually have to brave driving in the white stuff... grumble, grumble, grumble. Guess I'll just have to put my big girl panties on (thermal long johns are probably more appropriate) and deal. LOL ;)

So the new challenge over at Some Odd Girl is up and this time we have a recipe that, while you might not think it at first, gives you a lot of room to be as creative as you please. Just use:

2 pattern papers + colored cardstock base (NO KRAFT OR WHITE BASE) + buttons + punch/die cut = your card.

All of these elements must be present to be eligible for the prize. Of course an image and sentiment aren’t included or the equation might have looked ridiculously long but we want to see those too. You can have more than the above but not less than.

For my card, I wanted to change things up a bit so I chose to use the adorable reindeer from the Deck the Halls Tobie clear set as the main focal image. It's rare that I color up an animal rather than a person but this little guy was beggin' to become Rudolph and I just had to do it. It looks like he is taking a quick break from leading Santa's sleigh to nibble on some carrots that the good girls and boys left out for him. :)

Ok, now it's you're turn and you've got until November 29th to enter a card for a chance at winning a fab prize and while you don't have to use a SOG image to qualify, you do get an extra name in the hat come drawing time if you do.

Good luck!

Awww, this is a great card Amy. I love the scene you have created and the subtlety of the die cut you have used. And of course the image is very cute, too! I bet he's smiling at some fairwee that's hiding in the trees.
