santa's reindeer

today i did something that about gave me a heart attack! 
i CUT a stamp up *gasp* 
i am sure you all do it without a problem, 
but it was so hard for me to do! 
blaming it all on Allison from TAWS
what's next, using different brands together??? yikes!! 

i wanted to only use part of the sentiment
so took the leap and cut it out!
was so traumatized hubby had to take 
me to the Olive Garden to calm me down. lol

playing along with:

jingle belles
This week at Jingle Belles we're celebrating Santa Baby ... we're asking you to create a card featuring Santa, Mrs. Claus, Elves, Reindeer ... any denizen you might find at Santa's North Pole abode.

Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge
well my favorite color is grey so this was
a tough one! i found some paper with 
a light grey (to me!) print :)

well it doesn't count for the challenge as i have used
a total of four challenges and we can only have a 
total of three, but still wanted to show the sketch i used 
*that's what i get for not reading the rules* lol

su cardstock, mme the merry days of christmas 
ms arch lattice punch, spellbinders, doohickies twine,
glossy accents, foam tape, gold pearls, sewing,
and stamps from The Alley Way Stamps:

So cute and good for you taking the plunge and cutting into your stamp. I do it all the time. I love that little reindeer and might need that stamp set.

Is there any issue a warm breadstick can't solve? I was cutting my stamps up yesterday too ... I've been doing it for years with no issues (other than occasionally *misplacing* them if I cut them too small. Love that fun little reindeer ... adorable holiday card.
