Reindeer Party

     Here it is the 7th Day of the week-long, Christmas-in-July party at Catch the Bug.  I've played each day and today is Recipe Day:  Black, White, or Kraft, plus a Pop of Color and a Bit of Sparkle."  We also had to use the Friday Freebie from Bugaboo Stamps and it's such a fun and funny one.

     Take a close look at the expressions on the faces of the reindeer and the bird.  Don't they look like they had too much party last night?  I just know Santa's reindeer were partying in the barn when Santa wasn't home.  :-D


     I colored the image with ProMarkers plus sparkle gel ink on the snow and snowflakes, then die cut it with a pinpoint rectangle die from Memory Box.  I added a bit of red glitter to the reindeer's collar and I inked the edges with red ink.  The red polka dot border was cut with a die from Spellbinders and I added red Stickles for a little more sparkle.  Can you tell that I chose 'red' for my pop of color?  :-D  The white bow is one of those I make ahead of time and have waiting in my stash.

  4. Connie, I am working on my card with this image right now. Thought the same thing about the "hungover" look on their faces. Am thinking I'll add googly eyes!
    BTW- your card is adorable. Like the red sash along the side!
