Looking For Dasher

Not much longer now until Christmas and I, for one, am READY!  Well, at least I have my new Christmas duds anyway.  You like? 

No, I don't really dress this way for the holidays - however......(yep, you got it.....a short story here).....
Jim and I decided to do a little Christmas shopping the other day and after getting ready that morning I put on my reindeer antlers headband and announced I was ready to go!  He took one look at me and said there was NO way he was going anywhere with me dressed that way!  (He also said I needed a different kind of horns!!!!!!)   He really has no sense of adventure what-so-ever!  I took them off and stuck them in my purse - but as soon as we got to the mall, put them back on.  I was hoping to find Dasher - or Donner, or actually any of the guys.  They really weren't interested either - can't image why!  I did get a few "looks" though!

The image is from Art Impressions and she's colored in Copics.  The sentiment is from SU.  I embossed the red panel behind the image with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I gave her outfit a little shine with the Wink of Stella Pen and some glitter.

I'll enter this in the challenges at Deconstructing Sketches (sketch) and at Art Impressions (Merry and Bright).

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

HAHAHA...what a fun card and a cute story. Just think how many looks you would have gotten if you had an outfit on like this one AND the antlers. LOL

Hmmmm....hubby thinks you need a different kind of horns, huh? Not good, Lynn. I can't help but laugh.

I do love your fun card. It's super!

Oh ho, another cute image, and it definitely is Bright. Yeah, it's Merry too! She's so cute...made me think of Maxine. Great coloring and I hadda smile when I saw her too. She & your previous Santa make a wonderful couple. You go, Girl, with the antlers. Bet you had fun on your shopping trip. TFS, Merry Christmas & many hugs.

Donna Hanley said...

This is cute as heck and I was going to ask if I could borrow some of your duds. She certainly does look merry. I would think your sense of humor would have rubbed off on Jim. He must be a slow learner. LOL Enjoy the weekend.

Happy Holidays

Now if you'd put on your green shorts and red & white striped shirt and socks, you maybe would have found Dasher or one of the guys. Love this, Lynn! I'll bet it would be fun shopping with you!
