Morning Everyone,

Apologies for this being a Christmas card when we're having such warm weather here at the moment, but I bought these Mama Elephant Reindeer Games stamps and wanted to have a play with them straight away.  I wanted to buy them last year, but left it too late so I thought I'd buy them early this time.

I coloured the reindeer with copics and die cut them with their little dies (which I also treated myself to) and then inked the background with three blue distress inks.  I used a white gel pen for the snow and the cottage die is from Wild Rose Studio.  These were layered under an aperture using an inside/outside stitched circle die. The little reindeer were stuck down and the LOTV sentiment stamped in metallic silver.

You will probably be seeing more of these little fellas in the next few months :).

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

ABC Christmas - N for new (stamps and dies)
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Anything Goes
Inky Chicks - Christmas
Dies R Us - Layers (dies used - Reindeers, Cottage and stitched circle)
HLS Christmas - Anything Goes/Use Die Cuts
CraftyHazelnuts Christmas Challenge -Anything Goes
Ribbon Girls - Any card

I hope you have a lovely weekend and thank you for visiting. I do love reading your comments.
