Guest Designer and Blog Hop

This week I'm one of the guest designers at A La Card Monkey for Monkey Challenge 83. This week's sketch is simple:

Isn't it cute? Just stamp 3 figures and embellish! The theme is All Holidays. Here's my card:

I used the reindeer stamp from the Holly Jolly Christmas set. I stamped them in Soft Suede and colored in their harnesses with Real Red (also for Rudolph's nose - you have to have a Rudolph after all!). Their eyes, hooves and the other two noses are colored with Basic Black. The card itself is Real Red cardstock. The DSP is Frostwood Lodge from the Holiday catalog. The Christmas banner is from the Pines & Poinsettias stamp set (also in the Holiday catalog), it's stamped in Glorious Green to match the DSP. I joined the reindeer together with Cherry Cobbler bakers twine (I also used the bakers twine at the top join between the white cardstock & DSP. I think that the buttons make the reindeer look like little pull toys.

I'm also adding this to Shirley's Winter Wednesday Blog Hop.

It's just a few rules:
1. Add the badge to your blog with a link back to Shirley's blog.
2. Anything goes - just has to be Christmas.
3. Has to be a new post.
4. Add the hop to your post.

So come on and join the fun!
