Oh, Dear Deer

Happy Monday to everyone!!!  We're starting a brand new challenge over at Squigglefly and would love for you to play along.  If you use one of the Squigglefly images found in the store and enter, you could be a winner.  Our theme this time is Dear ( use this word in your sentiment)  - or use a Deer on your card. 

I've used this fun image from Sandra Caldwell called Reindeer Piggie along with a computer generated sentiment!  Here's the deal.......little Mr. Piggie wants to lead Santa's sleigh on Christmas but is having a really hard time convincing all the other reindeer that he could do just as good a job as any of them.  He finally found a little brown costume that looks like Rudolph so he's crashing the reindeer herd in hope that Santa will select him to lead the sleigh!  I personally think he has a very good chance of doing just that!  On Christmas morning if you look out the window and see Reindeer Piggie pulling that sleigh, give him a great big wave and blow him a kiss!

Thanks for stopping by.............and be sure and check out the Squigglefly challenge!
