I know. It's Friday not Monday. But I rarely get my Merry Monday card done and posted until Friday.
I finally bought Dasher and now he's slated for retirement. I'm glad I got him though. He'll probably remain on my shelf for a long time. SU's retirement plan and mine don't exactly coincide.
Sorry about the paint job. I tried to remove a bit of color to add some texture. I ended up giving him the mange look.
Then I added some of the Fine Supernova Chocolate glitter to his antlers. I was hoping that would take the eye up and away from his body. Did it work?
The background is stamped in Chocolate Chip with the Baroque Motifs flourish stamp. It's been one of my favorites since it was introduced and I can't imagine doing without it.
I chose to use little labels made with the Scallop Trim Corner punch for the sentiment. I hope it's OK to break away from the sketch a bit that way. I'm never sure.
Finally, here's the sketch Lesley gave us this week.
I used the colors from the CAS challenge at SCS this week to use chocolate, green & white or ivory.

Last, but certainly not least, Jack has discovered the toy box. Anytime we're willing to hold his hands and let him walk where he wants, he heads there. He keeps lifting his leg like he wants to climb in. Oh my, that will come soon enough.
Thanks so much for the visit and have a wonderful weekend.
