Reindeer Yummy Carrot

Hello, friends.  I'm back again today - I'm really on a roll with the Christmas cards - and yet I still have more to make.  The image I used here is called I Love Carrots from my new favourite designer, Lyn at Dragonsmoore - Spyder's Other Corner.  This naughty reindeer is so cute, and I laugh every time I look at the expression on his face.  That little snowman is not pleased that his nose has been eaten LOL. This image was actually a freebie at one point - each Wednesday Lyn has been providing a freebie at Spyder's Corner - you should check it out.  I'm particularly fond of her critters - they are so full of personality.  Now in case you're wondering - I don't have any affiliation with Lyn, other than I have fallen in love with her images. 

I coloured this with my Prismacolor pencils and added Stickles along the snow and snowman.  I added some red washi tape from Loblaw's.  The ribbon is May Arts and Offray.  I used my Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder.  The sentiment letters and gems are from Dollarama.  Kraft cardstock is Stampin' Up, and I used my new favourite sketch from Simon Says Stamp Wednesday:

LOL! What a great image! I just love the expression on that little snowman's face, and is it just me or is that deer actually looking kind of smug?! Great colour combination KT, I like that you've kept your palette to only a few colours, they work great together.

HEHHE!!! This is tooo too cute! I just saw a Wells Fargo commercial during the Macy's thanksgiving day parade where the snow people offered the horses their carrots to make sure they made it to their destination. It was a little weird, lol. I like your card much better ;) HAHAHA!!! Great layout and, again, love the fabric you used!
