Merry Deer!

I just had to play around with the cute "Christmas Reindeer" set from Hero Arts! Those reindeers are simply too cute and I love the trees in the set too.  I combined it with some lovely paper from My Mind's Eye that my friend Lisa had shared with me a couple of months ago. (Thank you Lisa).

Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah; My Mind's Eye
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Copic markers; Peeled Paint & Iced Spruce distress ink
Stamps: Hero Arts (Christmas Reindeer CL540)
Other: Clear embossing powder; stickles; dimensional adhesive

I popped up the one tree as well as the reindeer's head with some dimensional foam for some interest.  The snow was hand cut and then I also added some stickles to the edge and lightly inked the other edges with some Iced Spruce distress ink.

I made quite a few sets of two cards yesterday which I will be posting in the next few days, and all came from the inspiration I obtained from one blogger friend!  I love talented people, and this girl is super talented!  I'll tell you about her in my next post!

It was a lovely cool morning and I went and had a great 12 mile run with my running buddy!  It felt great.

Have  a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!
