recycled soda can

had to force myself to drink a soda 
to make a reindeer for this card! 
wasn't hard to do as i love my diet coke :) 

paper: su cardstock, bg jovial
th reindeer flight die
ms swirling lace boarder punch
misc: gold pearls

*lauren didn't go for my idea to re-use my card from 
last years recycle challenge so i made a new one! lol
i used a soda can to make the reindeer.
i followed THIS tut by lauren :)
will need to ask her how to photograph
them without glare. ;)

think i have enough!! ;)

Fab recycling, Rose - the reindeer is splendid - love the card, you've used some of my favourite paper. Thanks for joining in my CHNC challenge 69 - hope to see you again soon x

Actually we both snickered at the idea of *recycling* last year's card ... however, I think your pop can reindeer is a much more fabulous option ... so glad you celebrated Earth Day with us at jingle belles.

oof, i thought it was a totally HILARIOUS idea, actually, but i'm glad you thought i didn't "go" for it, if THIS amazing card is the result!!!

i ♥LOVE♥ this missus, tho i feel a bit conceited saying so, seeing as you used an idea i "promoted" last year! still, i never did anything as glamorous & elegant as this gorgeous card... in fact i almost always use the "leaping" TH reindeer b/c i 've never quite felt like i knew how to use this one... i do *NOW* however... MATTED OVALS, obviously!!!!!!!!!! :) :) :) a GLORIOUS card and a FAB bit of "upcycling"!!!!! ♥♥♥♥♥

ps re glare: HA! you've done as well or better than i EVER have... if you go back thru my posts you'll see my reindeer pics are either DARK or at odd angles... and now you know WHY!!! :)
