Sorry I've been MIA, but my crafty mojo is playing hide and seek and I haven't felt like blogging either. Is it just me that is feeling a bit blah lately?
I'm hoping to change that with a great new challenge over at
Our host this month is the lovely Julie and our themes are
U - Up in the Air
V -Vixen (Other Reindeer are ok too)
Julie has a prize for the lucky winner!
I came up with these cards
U for Up in the Air
My second card is V for Vixen
I stamped the reindeer names from PTI Dash Away All in red ink on white card and adhered it on some kraft card before cutting it with a stitched circle die. I then stamped and die cut the reindeer in 3 slightly different shades of brown ink. When I placed the deer on the circle, it all looked a bit disjointed so I found some stitched red card in my bits box and added that to the centre to add some definition. The background red card was embossed with a snow embossing folder and I finished off by adding a spot of red Nuvo drops to the reindeer noses.
You'll find lots of inspiration from the team over on our blog and you can enter your cards in the gallery over there. We had some fabulous entries last month and if you'd like to see if you're a winner, head on over to the winner's post.
I'm sure that this blah period will pass and I know that making these cards helped so I'm resolved to spend a bit more time in my craft room and recover my pesky mojo.
I'd like to play along at
Thanks for stopping by and stay safe.
