Deer Friends Sketch

Well, today I called in sick to work per se. I have been working so much and just got so run down and behind on many things. So, while doing some laundry downstairs I just happened to walk into my craft area and create a card. I played along with the sketch challenge (SC259) on SCS and used that for my layout.

This is a digital stamp from Sweet N Sassy stamps called Deer Friends. The image actually has 2 reindeer in it but the image was cropped and enlarged using just one of the deer. That is one of the cool advantages of using digi images. Another advantage is that you have them immediately so if you still have some cards left to make you get still get this adorable image and get them done in time for Christmas! I colored it with copics and used rustic red shimmerz paint on the bow and berries as well as rhinestones in the antlers.

I also used one of SNSS discontinued sets called Jesus is Born for the sentiment on the inside of the card. It is now 70% off- are you kidding me???
