Christmas in February!


First of all - for everyone that commented on my last post and wanted the Carrot Cake recipe---as soon as I get the recipe I will post it on my blog!!

Now, on to Dasher and Christmas in February! This card is for the Stamps R Us Challenge. The challenge is to make a red, white, and black card. The nice thing about this challenge blog is that you have a entire month to come up with an idea and post it! I like doing some of the weekly challenges too but sometimes the old mind just does not click in that quick and by the time I think of something to create, the challenge is over with and they are on another one! The Stamps R Us Challenge though is posted on the first of the month and then another one is not posted until the next month!! Yeah!

I'd been wanting the Dasher image from SU and finally broke down and got it. Better late than never though since Christmas is over with! Anyway, I used Real Red, White, Black and Real Red patterned paper. I stamped Dasher in black and then added some red rhinestones to his horns. The white background was embossed with the Snowflakes embossing folder. And yes, I topped it off with the white bow - using my Bow-Easy (once again). This card is similar to one I saw on SCS but I can't remember who had it and theirs did not have any red on it.

Thanks for stopping by................

I really like the layout you used for your card. It really makes the reindeer the focal point. The rhinestones are such a nice accent. And the black borders really make every detail stand out. Fab holiday card.

Love the red rhinestones on the antlers!!! Fabulous card for this month's sketch. I too love that the challenge goes all month because it allows more time for the ideas to perculate!!! Off to get more caffeine, LOL!

I love that Dasher stamp too! Great layout and what a perfect bow. I just got a bow easy and I love the way it helps to tie bows.
