Rain Dear!

Hi,hope your week is going well. A huge warm welcome to all my followers, I hope you enjoy my blog. Can't believe I'm nearly at 100 followers,thank you.
Our weather in the UK has taken a nose dive since the weekend, (I know,no real surprises there then!!) and I can safely say that I won't need to water the plants tonight!
Thought I would play along in a couple of christmas challenges and strangely enough a  reindeer was what came to mind first! Lol.

 Card Recipe
Winter Frolic - reindeer cut at 3",doodled,inked
Scarf embossed,lights - glossy accents
Acetate embossed with sizzix snowflakes folder and attached with eyelets
Reindeer popped on 3d foam
Forever Friends stamp

The challenges I am entering him into are...
Celebrate the Occasion - #21 - Christmas in July(no red)
The Paper Variety - Christmas in July
ABC Christmas Challenge  - N is for No Nonsense(no designer papers)

I would have given him a red scarf and a red nose, but think the fuchsia worked okay. The photos don't do the acetate justice as it gives a really great shiny background and really sets off whatever image you add. You can tell I add this a lot especially for my christmas cards when I'm keeping my image simple. I save all the clear packaging off everything and it embosses great.
Have a good day,off to catch up on your blogs.
