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.

That image is absolutely precious!! I so love how you've used the different papers for the backgrounds too! Sometimes life happens and there's just not much that can be done about it and I think I've learned to just say: "It is what it is" and move on. I do hope that you're feeling OK as I've missed you lately. I'm so excited about the Christmas Chaos challenges and look forward to finishing up my last 4 projects soon! Life got in the way this past week and I needed to catch up myself! LOL!! HUGS to you!

OH Lola, he just stole my heart! What a CUTIE!! His big eyes and sweet face - he'd get away with anything in my house! I love all 3 - I'm like you - I'm early, done, wrapped, glass of wine chillin'! This year was a good year for that and now I just read in the evenings. I wish you the best with finishing up in this last hours!
