Rustic Reindeer Bugaboo Stamp Christmas Cards

 Hello and wow, just a couple more days until Christmas.  I'm one of those who shops early, has all the presents wrapped and cards out in the mail.  This year, well, not so much has been accomplished.  This will be the first year since I can remember that I will not be sending out cards to my entire list.

I did manage to make a few reindeer cards for the Catch the Bug Holiday Chaos Photo Challenge:

 I'm featuring the reindeer from Bugaboo Stamps Christmas Trio Block.  I was inspired by a card on Instagram I saw quite a while back, but I don't know how to find it again to give proper credit.  I felt the design was just perfect and tried my best to recreate what I remembered.

 I used a stencil and white ink on kraft - trying to be a little more adventurous with my backgrounds, a Spellbinder flourish die, and papers from Stampin Up.  I think they have a bit of a rustic look to them.

Anyway, there is still plenty of time to enter all the challenges at Catch the Bug Blog!

Thank you for taking a peek at my cards today and have a wonderful week!

This meets the following challenges: 2 Crafty Critter Crazies: Anything Goes with a Critter, Crafty Animals: Anything with an Animal, Die Cut Divas: Anything Goes with Dies (Cuttlebug used), and Always Fun: Christmas.

Rory's Poppy Bouquet in Orange Card

 Hello and happy Hump Day.  Today I'm sharing a mid-month reminder for the current Anything Goes challenge at Corrosive Challenge.

I'm featuring Rory's Poppy Bouquet by Colour of Love.  I really enjoyed this image and didn't want too much distraction, so I left it sans sentiment.  I added a few crystals and colored with copics.

Join in if you can with Anything Goes.  The challenge runs until the end of December.  Thank you so much for taking a look and have a wonderful day! 

This meets the following challenges: A Bit More Time to Craft: Anything Goes, Love to Craft: Anything Goes, Watercooler Wednesday: Anything Goes, and Digi Choosday: Anything Goes.

Reindeer Tags

 Hello all!  This week is Holiday Chaos at Catch the Bug blog.  So all week long there will be challenges and lots of prizes.  I'm a little late to the party, but today I'm sharing a tag for Monday's ABC challenge (Anything But a Card).

I don't usually like ABC's but I was actually in need of a couple tags for gifts.  My tags aren't overly creative and I adore those who can put together tags that are like a gift all in itself...but I tried.

I'm featuring the reindeer from Bugaboo Stamps Cute Christmas Tag Set.  Using a couple dies, pop dots, wiggle eyes, and twine, I think these came out ok.  And this year, I'm blessing everyone with lotion!  I don't know about you, but with all the hand washing and extra dishes, the skin on my hands is dry and looking much older than usual - so hopefully my recipients appreciate it as well.

So visit Catch the Bug to enter one or all of the current challenges for a chance to win Bugaboo Stamps!

Thank you for taking a look and hope all is well.
