Warmest Wishes.

Time again over at the Christmas Card Club
to show the cards we have made for
The next theme  chosen by Rita
'Christmas Reindeer.'
Now whilst I do have some nice Reindeer stamps
I was determined to use those little die cut snippets
from a day or so ago that I said looked
a bit like antlers!
So I collected up a few more odds and ends
An old Christmas card front
The left over card from cutting out the butterfly tag
2 ovals cut using my Fiskars shape template
Sentiment saved from an old card
Small snippets of white card stock
A few pearls
and oh yes the Antlers!
and got cracking.
I did use a few extras not shown here
as I improvised as I went along.
Acetate, blue card stock, glitter and Wink of Stella.
Entering into the following challenges:
Crimbo Crackers # Anything goes.
Sister Act #79 Anything goes.
Christmas Stampin all Yr Long #33 Use your imagination.
Pixie's Crafty Workshop #147 Use up your snippets ( I most certainly did!)
Crafty Hazelnuts Extra # Christmas cards only.

Hi Mrs A, hope all OK with you...I'm loving both of your Christmas cards and very impressive that you are so adept at recycling your off cuts and scraps...wish I could be as productive and inventive as you are. The little reindeer on the 2nd card is so cute :) Donna ♥ x

Well I am totally lost here as people are commenting on two cards but I only see one as the first picture to me is showing what you were using and not a card at all.
Your second photo shows the finished card and how lovely it is too, love the reindeer.

The antlers are brilliant and you have made such a fun card!
Love the scalloped frame you created.
