6 Days 'til Christmas? Oh {rein}deer! LOL

I don't know why, but time keeps going by faster and faster! People always said that's what happened when you got "older" and I think that must be what's happening. It seems the whole year just flew by. Each month, I'd say "I can't believe it's already September... November... December..." and then just as quickly, the month's half over. Now we're finding our way into the new year and it's just crazy to me!!!

I went to a scrapbooking retreat mid-November and said I'd be posting pictures of the cards I made throughout the month and here we are, 12/19 and no Christmas cards posted. And actually, no cards mailed either. What a slacker!!! Honestly, I haven't wrapped a gift yet and am not much in the holiday spirit. I think it's partially the lack of snow here in NH and also the fact that I can't believe it's December and Christmas is in less than a week!!! Guess I better believe it though because it's coming whether I'm ready or not!!!

When we went to the retreat, we went over to Michael's before checking in. I saw this little reindeer stamp and it was 50% off. I kept putting it down and picking it back up, but I just couldn't resist it and I'm glad I couldn't 'cause she's just the cutest!!! I also picked up some little Santa hats which fit perfectly on her head and thought that would be perfect.

It's kind of hard to tell in the first picture, but I stamped the image twice and popped it up off the card. Oh and I added a tiny felt pom pom for her nose. :)

For this card, I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background. I sponged some white pigment ink over the snowflakes and added a few pearls. Super simple, but love the look!
