Sending you Christmas cheer...

Hey there!

It's the second Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for the November 'anything goes' challenge over on the 7 Kids challenge blog. Playing along is easy, all you have to do is use at least one product that can be found in the 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store and link back to the challenge blog in your own post, which gives you a chance at winning a $20 gift certificate at the end of the month... who doesn't love that?

I've been such a fan of the Little Agenda stamp sets from Mama Elephant so when they released the Little Santa Agenda and Little Reindeer Agenda sets I had to add them to my collection. These tiny stamps manage to have so much character and I quickly realized that as cute as they are on their own I could super size the impact they made on my card by masking a whole group of them together. So why not create a line up a la 'The Usual Suspects' of Santa and his eight tiny reindeer as they get ready for Christmas? I used my Misti to stamp them because the grid on it made it easy to keep them all lined up nice and even. Once I had them all stamped and colored up I decided to add prominent shadows at their feet to help ground them and add a bit of drama to a very clean and simple design. I can't even tell you how happy this card makes me! :)
I hope to see some of my crafty friends get their jolly on and join the fun with me this month over at 7 Kids!
