Naughty Reindeer!

Hello, and welcome!

Hi, Vicky.....I see!
Vicky is my 57th Follower.....yaaaay!  Who'd have thought that that many people could be bothered to come and see what I'm gettin' up to?
Well, I think that deserves a reward, and I'm considering putting up a teeny bit of Blog Candy when I get to 60 Followers....yaaaay for me!
BUT .........remember the Appreciated Follower Award?  I really don't mind people becoming followers to be in with a chance of winning something, but it would be nice if they continued to visit here when it's over and done........just sayin'........ha!
Now, I've got to figure out the logistics of makin' the Blog Candy happen.....any suggestions?

Okay, I know it's still only August, but you would not believe the number of Christmas cards I send out every year.....and that's not counting the ones I'm asked to make for other people to send.......honestly, some people think I'm a branch of Hallmark Cards...ha! I am with yet another reindeer card.....can't resist reindeer.....or snowmen....or penguins.....or Father Christmas....or Christmas trees.......jingle bells......oh, okay, I give up.....I'm a Christmas Addict!

Even if I had only 1 person that I wanted to send a Christmas card to, I would still be producin' 'em by the dozen....what can I say?.........Christmas is not just for Christmas, it's for Life!!
Might make a car sticker out of that one....Haaaa!

Here we go..............

Oh, he's such a naughty boy.........that poor ickle snowman's nose....didn't know reindeer like frozen carrots, did ya?
The DP is from  Papercraft, and I used bits of red and green card from my nicely dwindling scrap mountain..........the lace is plain white card, cut with my Martha Stewart border punch........

All coloured up with Promarkers, and a little bit of sparkle from Sakura gel pens.........I love the expressions on both these cute faces!
I know that I snagged this freebie digi last year, but didn't make a note of from whom....if you know who that is, please let me know so I can give due credit....this artist definitely deserves it for this sweet image!

Don't think the gold lettering is showing up too well in the pic, but it looks gorgeous in the "flesh"....ha!  It's from my little box of Cosmo Cricket Chippies........ 

Again, the colour of the button isn't showin' up too's a mottled green, and I mounted it onto three torn paper circles...what could be easier than that?

Everything popped onto foam tabs,  just because I like it that way.....hope you like the result, lol.

Don't forget to let me know what you think about the Blog Candy........think I know what I can put up for grabs, but will leave you in suspenders for now.....HAAAA!!

Challenges:  Christmas in August
