Merry Christmas Eve!

Wishing everyone a lovely holiday.  Fritz got his wish--a brief sunbath on the deck.  Nice to have sun even though it's kind of chilly.  Here's the card I'll give hubby tomorrow.

I was inspired by the inspiration board for Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights Challenge.  I used the red & white color combo in many of the pictures as well as the pine cone wreath. Couldn't resist ordering a few 40% off items in the EH sale including the wonderful deer die.  I stacked 3 cut from kraft cardstock so that there was a shadow.  The top layer also has some shading done with Memento Rich Cocoa. Fun to use a Tim Holtz jingle bell brad with a bit of red sparkly twine.  The same brown ink was used to stamp the card front with the pine cone from Winnie & Walter Frenchy's Festive Florals.  The sentiment is from EH Merry & Bright dies.  I stacked them 2 high & white embossed the top layers.  The deer & the red circles are mounted with foam tape.  I'm also entering SSS National Christmas Card Day, CASual Fridays, Christmas Card Challenges, HLS Anything Goes with Dies, Die Cut Divas & Word Art Wednesday

Here's my very simple card for PTI MIM Photo Cards.  I had already printed some other photos of Fritz, so used one for a circle card with PTI Snowflake Flurries stamped in Delicata Silvery Shimmer.  Added some snowy dots with Nuvo Ivory Seashell Crystal Dots.  May use this for the Vet's card next year or it can be a winter note card.

  10. That is a cool deer die and I can see why it had to come home with you. That's a very nice card and I'm sure hubby loved it. Good for Fritz for getting a sunbath in. I had the door open to air out the house some Christmas eve because the weather was "nice enough." It was 45 degrees which usually causes much weeping here in Southern Arizona but it's been so cold lately that 45 was warm! (it was also very sunny and no breeze).

  17. The reindeer card looks so classy with the tan and red combo - I really like the font too. Mr. Fritz looks adorable on his own circle card. Merry Christmas and all the best for 2017
