No Peeking!

 

Happy Saturday, peeps!  I feel like I am melting here in SE PA....so I thought I would make a Christmas card for the Jingle Belles challenge of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (red and a reindeer), as well as the challenging sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch:






I dusted off my SU Labels thinlits and some retired Christmas DSP to create the side panel, and added a wee little strip of red glimmer paper.  This cute little set from Clearly Besotted (In Print) was perfect for my reindeer; they were stamped in Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and have a red glimmer nose that's popped up!


The sentiment is from Amy R Stamps (Handy Christmas Greetings).  And just to show you that I thought I was such a smarty-pants, and I didn't need to use my Misti on the inside....my third little reindeer's antlers are rudely poking into my sentiment (sigh).  Well, whoever receives this card will just have to cut him a little slack, LOL!


Cassidy will be home soon, so you won't have to look at my butterfly pictures too much longer!  Here's a beautiful Monarch:


and this Swallowtail was fluttering so quickly, I couldn't get a still shot, but I loved how this looked anyway:


Thanks for popping in today and have a blessed day!

Love the way those cute wee reindeer are doing exactly what the words are telling them not to do! Just adorable -even if seems WAY too early for Christmas (even though I know it's not)

This is absolutely adorable and you totally nailed that sketch! Trying to figure out how you die cut the side panel, though... It's perfect.
