Flying Reindeer and back to work . . .

Hi all!

I've had such a wonderful 10 days off from work! I created lots and lots of cards and tags for Christmas, including the one I'm sharing today.

I'll be back at work tomorrow, so I won't have quite as much time to create, or to comment on all your blogs. This is the start of a very busy time in the floral department at work, but I'm well rested and ready to go! Gotta sell all those poinsettias!

Here's my card, using the adorable Sizzix/Hero Arts, Holiday Cheer set. Love it!

Flying Reindeer by bdengler4 (Barb)

The sky is spritzed with Perfect Pearl water, then splattered using Picket Fence Distress Stain and a small paint brush. The reindeer's sweaters are paper pieced and I added lots of bling for this month's Hero Arts challenge. I don't have a cloud die or punch, so I hand drew them and cut them out.

I don't usually blog two days in a row, so if you missed my Bo Bunny Christmas tags, you can click here.

Thanks for your visit! Your comments make my day! Have a great week! :)
