Jingle those Bells!


Hi everyone.  Today is the newest challenge from Merry Monday (#88).  I think you're going to have a lot of fun with this challenge ...




I used a sweet digital image from Bugaboo, paper piecing him and adding a couple of jingle bells around this neck.  I just LOVE the expression on his face!  I had a lot of fun making this card and was smiling the whole time :)




Stamps:  Plush Reindeer (Bugaboo); Signature Christmas Sentiments Too (Pink Petticoat)
Paper:  White, Baked Brown Sugar, Early Espresso (SU!)
Ink:  Baked Brown Sugar, Early Espresso, Basic Black (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  sponges, Maraschino Twine (The Twinery), Jingle bells ($1 Store), glue, adhesives, and dimensionals



I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge.  Pop by Lesley's blog (Always Playing with Paper) to see the amazing cards from the rest of the Design Team.


I'm entering this card into the SCS CAS challenge (CAS251 - bling it up).  The reindeer is all blinged up with his jingle bells and ready for a Christmas party! :)

I agree with Darnell! This is the cutest critter! He looks a bit puzzles as to where that jingling is coming from! The bells make him extra special!

I've seen this little goofy reindeer at Bugaboo, and it's a delight to see how you have dressed him up so festive & cheery. Love his little dark boots & those jingle bells are the perfect jewelry to match his quizzical expression. We received your most gorgeous Joy card tonight and it is Uber lovely. Thank you so much for thinking of us! Merry Christmas & many cyber hugs coming your way to you & your family. TFS
