Rudolph Day

Hello my crafty friends, on the 25th of each  month there is a challenge called Rudolph Days Challenge hosted by Maureen. I try and play here and there (to build my stash of Christmas cards and because it is fun to play), of course lately I'm not playing to much of anything with the summer chores. But I did want to try and play along, and since I had a card that I made, but never posted I thought I would use that one since time is at a premium. So here is my card, which is very CAS. 




See, told you it was a CAS card. lol I just love this stamp set because I love the ribbon. I really think it gives the look of a bow tied on a card without all the bulk. The little deer didn't come from this stamp set, but from another one, but fit in the tag very well. I still haven't decided if I should color the deer or not. What do you think, leave it as is or color it? Ok off to see if I can squeeze under the wire to play along at Rudolph Days!

As always I love when you come by and sit with me for a spell. It was a beautiful day to sit outside and enjoy the nice breeze. Your sweet comments bring so much sunshine to my world and warms my heart and for that I thank you very much!!! Crafty hugs,

Oh this is a brilliant CAS and the tiny tag especially makes it perfect for Rudy Day. Love the ribbon ties..it looks so very dimensional - not like a 'stamped flat' image at all. Good JOB! And I'm glad you were able to participate in Rudy Day. Postlady just dropped off an Amazon box. Need to open, see what it is! Hugs & TFS

What a cool stamp. It does look just like a ribbon tie and bow!
I like the tag and reindeer the way it is...It helps keep the ribbon and the red as the focal point and helps it pop off the page.

Thanks for taking part in the \june Rudolph days Challenge.

Brilliant CAS card, Brenda. What a great stamp! I'd leave the little deer just as he is, it adds to the CAS design.
Visiting your blog today with my Rudolph Days DT member's hat on. Thank you for joining in the challlenge this month. Good luck! xx

I love how this has the feeling of dimension without the bulk! I think the deer is fine as is. Since coloring books are all the rage, this could be a coloring card! The recipient can add color if they want it! Have a lovely holiday weekend!
