Dashing Through the Snow (JB29 and MOJO200)

Hi there! Excitement abounds as I actually **GASP** play not one, but TWO challenges today! LOL, but in all seriousness, I know things have been preeetty sketchy and sporadic this summer. ;) Kids go back to school very soon so things should improve!  

This card is for the Jingle Belles Reindeer Challenge, though they specify you don't HAVE to use a reindeer, any animal is fine. Also, I used the sketch for Mojo Monday, this is the 200th Mojo sketch! That is so cool and it's a great sketch, too. Here it is: 

I used some super cute DP, the main panel actually has little reindeer all over. Then I used the plaid for the sentiment stamp, which I stamped 4 times. I made my square a little larger and my circle a little smaller than the sketch. Since the stamp said "Dashing through the snow" I used a snowflake DP in the circle and a snowflake felt ribbon along the bottom. The "pop" is that cute glittery reindeer sticker, I used his brother back on this card, you may remember. 

Well, I hope you like my card! I'm pretty happy with this one, it just flowed easily, was a quick card and it's pretty cute, too. I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! Hubby and I had a date tonight for our anniversary, so that was fun :) 

"see" you soon!

YES! And you should be happy with this one. I like this card even more than the "brother" card. WOW! Your color choices are gorgeous together; I love the snowflakes and the repeated sentiment, and the handsome reindeer. Perfect.
