HoHoHo ….!!!


Nope!   No ‘green giant’ here!    (HoHoHo …. get it??!)

This is simply a festive reindeer, stopping by to get everyone in the shopping spirit! 

Why? … … …. Well, as of now, we have 49 shopping days until Christmas!!!    Oh My Word …..  49!


This sketch comes from the Our Craft Lounge Friday sketch challenge OCLDT38  today …. We would LOVE to have you join in & play along!  Every month, a winner is chosen from the participants … and the prize is a brand new OCL stamp set!   C’mon & play along with us!!

Since I’m a challenge-loving stamper, this one takes us to the North Pole on the compass, as part of the SCS monthly theme challenge, CT1010.   It’s also inspired by the Splitcoaststampers F4A37 challenge, which is to make a project  using something that has a tail.    Now how many critters do you know that have a “tail”!??  Maybe that’s another challenge for you to enjoy, eh?       😉

I’ve used a lot of OCL’s Crafty Sparkles on this one … covering the stitches, jazzing up the Primas & the pearls, and even using my own video tutorial for the dry embossed circle element.  You’re welcome to check  out the tutorial in this post ….   

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you’ll find some inspiration for sure!   I’m looking forward to a brisk Fall weekend here in Texas …. and I hope that those of you in the U.S.A. remember that most of us will “Fall Back” this weekend by an hour!  (Yep!  It’s time for the “time change”!)   So ‘where does the time go’????    😉
