Wee and Reindeer

Hello, my friends! I had a record sneeze day yesterday, but it didn't feel like a cold. Hopefully it's just an allergy. I am pretty sure some mojo managed to escape with each sneeze though... Good thing is that I have a couple of card in storage that I can share. Here is a card that I made last week.


I made this card for the Christmas Card challenge over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog. I also used Sketch #31 from CLP Sketch Challenge for the design of my card.


I used the lovely Wee and Reindeer for my card. The gnome holiday images that Norma Fickle illustrated for Whiff of Joy are still some of my most favorites.


The beautiful patterned paper that I used is from Memory Box's Dewfrost collection. The image and sentiment label are inked with scattered straw when the pieces were still in the dies and all paper edges are inked with the same ink as well. The seam binding is dyed with barn door and the sentiment is from Close To My Heart.

That's it for today. Hope you all have a wonderful day! =)



Thanks for stopping by!
