Merry Monday Reindeer Greetings

The Joyous Celebrations set caught my eye on the first spin through the Holiday Catalog.  There's lots of cute images in this set.  I used the little reindeer on this card.  Isn't he a cutie?  And he just fit for the Merry Monday challenge this week.


Here's Lesley's fantastic sketch for this week.


I flipped it around so the deer wouldn't be looking off the card.

And it just so happens that the Dynamic Duos challenge this week is


My other color is actually a neutral.  I wonder if that's allowed?

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Lovely as a Tree, Joyous Celebrations, More Merry Messages
Ink:  Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Festival of Prints DSP, Snow Festival DSP

Can you believe it's October already?  It'll be time to send out those Christmas cards in the blink of an eye.  

I hope you'll join us for the Merry Monday challenge and I know you'll enjoy taking a peek at the other designers cards.  I've been admiring them!


I hope your week is starting off well.  I'm glad you decided to spend some of it with me.

Enjoy!
