Reindeer Games

Hello Friends,

For today I will be playing along with Fusion Card Challenge. So without further ado here is my card for today, enjoy!

I wish you could feel this card because the snowflakes are velvety.
I think textures was the name of the game for this challenge so I tried to pick
elements that went with that theme.

Again lots of texture. The reindeer was cut by partial die-cutting then fussy cutting its trail.
 The sentiment seems to glide with the reindeer
What inspired me about the photo was its greenery.
I tried to illustrate that using PP with pine, wood then distressing the edges.

Challenges Entered: 


Life, like the weather, is changing here at my household. My son just turned 9 and my daughter is soon to be eleven. I have a ton of jobs, ideas, and oh yeah, Christmas!  Then I turn and look back and think change is good. Like the weather, as in life, I feel change allows for renewal, reflection, and a bit of nerv-citment! What is nerv-citment? Well, it is excitement along with nervousness that life brings you in times of change. 

Last Sunday evening after an entire day of activity, my husband asked if I wanted a glass of wine to end the busy day. I accepted and assumed a position under a blanket on the couch with my wine... So comfy... Too comfy apparently, because next thing I knew I heard a smash... You can only imagine the mess of red wine laced with bits of glass all over the floor! Our wool area rug and bare wood floors littered with debris. Nothing some towels can't soak up and a bit of Oxi-clean got that stain right out!! The most wonderful time of year? I say yes... Blessed to have so much to do...

Thank you for stopping by today. I know it has been awhile since I wrote a personal narrative but today I had a bit more time to write it up! So thank you all for stopping by my corner of the internet and I hope to see you soon in Blogland.

All the best,
Shawna
