Hello everyone.. and Merry Christmas!

I know it's not exactly Christmas, but here, in creating world, it has been for the past few weeks as we've been trudging away through the snow (aka debris on the craft floor) to bring you some fantastic samples using the Christmas Pick of the Week Rococo dies. Have you seen them?

Oh my word..... they are right up my alley! Cute, sweet.... what more could you ask for? So today, I thought I would share my little Reindeer with you.

Isn't he just the sweetest little guy? I think he's adorable, but I did leave him until last to work with him because I knew I would be using him alot if I didn't. 

For the background of the card I used one of our older dies, but you could use corners, stamps, papers, anything you wish really... but I wanted to keep the colours quite neutral. I added a layer of green to the background as I was using this in my front panel of the card. 

As you can see from the close up here, I cut out the little guy from darker brown cardstock, then stuck him onto lighter card and cut around. I also stuck another layer onto darker card to cut out the mouth area and the feet. I paper pieced the scart using bits of green and red.

I do love a little white gel ink too on my cutey characters... and this one didn't escape it. So, he got the obligatory eye highlight and litle highlights on his scarf, feet, nose and ears. I think it just adds a little brightness.

I hope you like the card... it's quite an easy, quick one to make... but I'm sure you've seen lots of our little Reindeer this week. I love him, and I'm sure you do too!
