Sweet Reindeer

Ack!!  It's July already!  Dare I mention that the year is now half over??  How are you coming on your Christmas card stash?  It's time to start and here's the perfect reason: today starts a new challenge on the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  As always, it is anything goes as long as it is Holiday (Christmas) related.  The sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and the winner will win 7 images of their choice.  Here's my card:
I absolutely LOVE this reindeer!  Oh, he's so cute!!  I just love his little face; kind of like a little lost puppy don't you think?  I've had that blue trim for ever and decided it was finally time to use it.  I never really know what to do with it as it is adhesive backed (kind of tricking to stick down straight) and the color is hard to match.  But I think it added a really fun element to this card.  I also used a bit on the inside.  And there is still a bunch left; but at least I managed to use up several inches.  I don't have a photo of my bits and pieces stash as I am pretty sure I didn't use up a single thing from it, AND I know I added at least one image.  I really need to get back to working on it.  Don't forget to play along with us this month.  I can't wait to see what you are creating.
