Christmas Reindeer

Hello, and welcome!

I'm going to keep this short.......today has been difficult....first anniversary of my Dad's death....and my Mam had a fall and cut above her eye....hospital until 5.00am..........

There are so many Christmas in July challenges out there, that I had to make a card to throw in........

Everything I've used for this card is from last year....I've promised myself I won't buy anything for Christmas cards, this year, because I have so much left over from previous years..........everything is in my favourite tradtional colours....

I used a freebie digi.....mounted it onto kraft card, and set at an angle, so he looks like he's flying.........the stars are diecuts.......

I used beads on his collar, and on the saddle strap..........coloured with Promarkers.........

The sentiment and candy canes are diecuts.............

Used red netting for the bow and ribbon under the image.....used lots of Mod Podge.

Thanks for looking.
Christmas in July
All about you
