A Couple of Bucks

A couple of bucks for you today!  Now I know that generally speaking, a couple of bucks means two and a few means more than two.  I only have a "couple" on the front but will include the other inside to make it a "few" - along with a little money for Christmas too!

Those cute little reindeer and the sentiment are from Paper Smooches.  I used some red background paper and the photo die from Lil Inker.  The snowflake was made with a Martha Stewart punch and glitter added.  Behind the deer I used a much loved piece of the snow embossing folder that Mary sent me and some more glitter to the hand cut "snow" they're standing on.  The piece of Kraft was embossed with wood grain from SU.  I'm getting ready for Christmas.

I'll enter this in the challenges at Sweet Stamps (nature), Pixie's Snippets Playground (snippets), and the ABC Christmas Challenge (reindeer).

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

So darn cute. I love that the snow drops help bring out the dots on your background paper. I really have to get the MS punch. It really adds to your card nicely. Great snow drifts. wishing you a fun day.

You always find the cutest critters for your cards, and these 2 little fellas are no exception. Glad to see the EF paper is getting a good workout. Used very effectively I might say too. Loved your layout and all the bright colors, and very funny play on words, Clever Miss. TFS & Hugs. (say when/if you need more EF..Your new one should be there by now...I hope).

There's never been a cuter way to give money than with a card like this! It is just adorable, and I love how you offset the frame in the background! Totally cute and fun!!

Well now...isn't this just the cutest little pair?! I can visualize the inside too, from your description. Sounds great! I really like the woodgrain panel, adds just the right touch of texture. Great card!

What a great idea for a money gift, Lynn! I'm definitely going to have to steal -- er, borrow -- this idea. I don't think I have any little 'bucks' that cute but a trip over to Paper Smooches might just be in order. The grandkids would absolutely love this!
