Oh Deer

Christmas is in the air…even though it's bright sunshine and 23 degrees outside! I am feeling very Christmassy right now, having had the opportunity to play with the new Nordic Christmas range from Crafters Companion, in readiness for the Pick of the Day Launch earlier this week.

Here is one of my makes using one of the fabulous Reindeer stamps……I love him as he is such a quirky little character with just the right mix of cute and comical, so he would be good for boys and girls I think.

So, this time I have gone with a gift box made from Kraft card…..something I have not used too much but, it seems just right for these images. There is also a Kraft coloured Neenah card, called Desert Storm available from CC these days and that's what I used for colouring my image. Makes a nice change don't you think, and white pen shows up really well on it too.

The image is coloured with Spectrum Noirs and the backing paper is taken from the Nordic CD. I love that it is red but muted in this case.

The sentiment is also from the stamp set and I filled the box with coloured tea lights, to match with the sentiment.

So I hope you like my little box.  :-)

Here are some challenges that I would like to enter today.

Thanks for visiting today, and a happy weekend to you all.
