Life is Good Blog Hop

Welcome to another mid month blog hop, this time featuring Theresa Momber's "Life is Good". I'd already given the cabin from the set a lot of love, and couldn't think of any new colors for a sponged sunset Theresa hasn't already dazzled us with LOL!, so it was time to see what I could do with the deer! I had a few last minute Christmas cards that needed making, so this simple design filled the bill quite nicely!
I started with a Pure Luxury White base and stamped out nine reindeer (8 plus Rudolph) in Vivid Coffee Bean, stamping off every other deer before re-inking. I added a little adhesive rhinestone I'd colored red for the nose and stamped this greeting from "Seasonal Sayings" underneath in Vivid Brick. Last some holiday ribbon and a jingle bell attached with a glue dot and it's done!
