Brown Reindeer Christmas

Good morning everyone hope the week is going well for all my friends and  followers. I've been decorating and cleaning most of the week so  just finished this card last night. The image I have used on todays post is one that I bought  a couple of years ago and is still one of my favourite Christmas stamps. Its made by a local company called  Crafty Individuals http://www.craftyindividuals.co.uk/ they are an on line company specialising in rubber stamps and are based not far from me in Yarm. The stamps are quite unusual and the site is worth a look. I've also used  a couple of gorgeous Christmas Reindeer buttons I got a while ago from a Craft shop in Whitby.

 
 
 
 
I have made the card with Kraft card and the lovely Krafty Christmas papers from Lili of the Valley. I stamped the images with Memento Ink Rich Cocoa.

Hi Carole. Who'd have thought an all brown card could look so beautiful. All your elements have been arranged with so much thought and work so well together. It's gorgeous!
Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog. Stuart is now blaming his glasses for thinking it looked like a Dalmatian but he doesn't need to wear them to see close up!
I hope your recycled teenager day is good despite the weather and that you get your fish and chips at the Magpie ok, I've heard there can be quite a queue.
Good luck in the challenge! Debra x

Yes Carole your crafters eye saw beauty in the peg the boys so casually destroyed while we chatted waiting for our meal. I love the colours of the card all built around the peg, good luck with the challenge and yes I am still soberoctober
