Reindeer Games

Happy Thursday!!  When I first saw the peeks of Alli Miles' new set Holiday Sparkle, I thought it wasn't for me.  Until I caught a peek of this sweet little fella.  I think I bought the whole set for this reindeer alone.  LOL  I am loving how all the images in this set are sized perfectly to fit on PTI's Tag Sale 1.  I don't do a lot of gift tags, but think they look fab on cards.  I especially love how this die cuts out the little reinforcement as well.

This little guy could do with a little more colour, but I stamped him in Staz-On which I know should not mix with Copics.  So, here he is, sparkly nosed, googly eyed, and looking like he's in desperate need of some sun.  As the temperature drops and the snow starts to swirl, I think we all could do with a quick sunshine getaway.  Oh well, a girl can dream.

I do apologize for photographing this against a white backdrop.  The border left on the white card base completely disappears.  If I wasn't so lazy, I would reshoot the pic.  But, I know that means re-editing, re-uploading ... let's just chalk this up to lessons learned & I promise not to do this again.  Okay?

Have a great weekend friends & I'll see you all next week!
