Festive Snippets

Hi everyone.  Today I'm playing along with February Rudolph Days Challenge, which is run by talented scrappimo!  I think I played there once a long time ago, but life has gotten in the way of me getting to play with all the challenges I like. :)

Anyways, I made it this month!  Mo runs the challenges every month with an "Anything Goes Christmas" theme.  The linky is open from the 25th until the end of the month, so you need to post your card or project during that time and link up to enter.

I went with my usual CAS style.  I pulled a small snippet from my stash of Alcohol inks backgrounds I made a while back.  Here's a video how-to if you're interested ... Alcohol Inks on Yupo.  I die-cut two snow hills and a cute little reindeer die that just arrived in the mail.  Isn't he adorable??!! :)

I used a NBUS sentiment as well from a set by Penny Black called Festive Snippets (hence the blog title for today). :)

I hope you'll come play along at Rudolph Days ... if it's too late for February's challenge, there will be another next month.  Again, anything goes as long as it's Christmas.  Post your card or project between the 25th and the end of the month and link up.

Great background, Lolly, just perfect for that sweet reindeer! The deer profile makes me think of a puppy who turns its head and sniffs to smell something new! Adorable!! Hugs, Dolly
