Happy Little Stampers Christmas - Reindeer

Christmas is over and it's time to start those cards for next year.  Happy Little Stampers Christmas is here to inspire and encourage you.  As usual it's an 'Anything Goes' challenge with an optional twist and here it is.
I always challenge myself to do the twist so this is what I made.
I saw Dawn from WPlus9 make faux shiplap backgrounds and I had to try it. Since you can watch the video, I won't bore you with the details. The deer from EbyE is inlaid and surrounded by branches from Catherine Pooler and a sentiment from Concord and 9th.

We hope you'll get inspired by what you see on our blog and make a card for the gallery.


  1. I love those pretty little sprigs in the corners! This is fabulous Bobby!

  2. Gorgeous, Bobby ... you did a fantastic job with the shiplap ... such a great background for that handsome reindeer! There's a lovely folk art feel to the design ... it's yummy! Hugs, Anita :)

  3. great the look of the woodsy bkg.
