Time to Jingle...

Hi there!

Well, we are here, Christmas Eve day. Are you ready? I'm thankful that I've pretty much got everything covered because I'm feeling a bit under the weather at the moment. Nothing serious, just a persistent cough but it is enough to zap some of my Christmas cheer. Hopefully the cough medicine will have me pepped back up before the big celebration tomorrow. 
I made my card for today in the spirit of Christmas Eve and Santa's magic ride. My friend Beth is an amazing card maker and this past Halloween she took the Cute Cottage die from Memory Box and only used the top half of it as a witch flew overhead. I thought this was such a genius use of that die that I was inspired to make a Christmas version of my own. So I grabbed the reindeer from the Lawn Fawn Critters in the Snow set and with a bit of masking created a whole team of reindeer to pull Santa's sleigh. I used a needle to wind the twine into a harness and the jingle bells actually came from the elf's hat in the MFT Santa's Elves set. I gotta say, this was a really fun scene to create. 

Here's hoping that Santa doesn't pass you by!
