Oh DEER! It has already been half a year! Before we know it, the day we've been planning for will soon be here! Are you getting any closer to getting your Christmas Card Stash complete? This month we thought it would fun to add a deer or reindeer image, even a reindeer wannabe image would be okay; you know, the images where kids or dogs don a set of antlers and pretend to a reindeer?!
In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, make sure that your Christmas card has an image of a DEER or REINDEER (or reindeer wannabe). If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.
Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of a $12 gift certificate to the Bugaboo Stamps store.
Here's my card for the challenge:
The image I used was Bugaboo's Snowflake Deer Silhouette. The card base is pink card stock. The designer paper is from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. The green snowflake paper is from An Ecclectic Christmas 2 and the pink snowflake paper is from Feeling Frosty.
The sentiment is from The Little Paper Shop, unfortunately no longer in business. It's die cut with MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags. For additional embellishments I added some punched snwflakes that have been sparkled with Diamond Stickles. The deer also has diamond stickles on the larger snowflakes. So the card really sparkles in real life. I hope you will get a start on your Christmas card in July as we celebrate our Oh Deer challenge at 12 Months of Christmas Link Up.
I am entering these challenges:
- Atlantic Hearts challenge: sketch

- QKR Stampede: Christmas in July
- Addicted to Stamps and More: holiday
- Crafty Hazelnut Christmas challenge: anything goes
- Crafty Hazelnut Christmas Extra: anything goes Christmas
Thanks for stopping by. I may be kind of absent this week too as our sons are home to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and they are staying the week. I'd like to take advantage of them being home and spend as much time as I can with them. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
