Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer


Only two days until Christmas! Are you ready? I've still got some of my last minute baking and food preparations to get ready so they're fresh for Christmas Day, but otherwise, I'm all set! My daughter is home and we've got a Wasgij (reverse perspective puzzle) on the go. I love setting out puzzles during family holidays as it's a wonderful way to connect at different times of the day. One of us will see another working on the puzzle and join in for a bit. It makes me happy to spend the time together having fun with my favourite people in this world. 


I'm sharing a fun card over at My Craft Spot today. I started by cutting the base and mats for my 4x4 card. Before embossing the white mat, I stamped it with a little sentiment from the Tiny Tags Christmas set. The Sizzix snowflake folder is perfect to use with the Tiny Tags stamps as the sentiments fit inside the largest snowflake. Once the mats were ready to go, I assembled the sweet little reindeer from Miss Kate Cuttables (with enamel dots for his eyes) and popped him on the card. I purposefully made the base a bit smaller than the lights as I wanted them to extend off the card. This was quick and easy to put together - a perfect project for this busy time of year!

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!! xox
