Double duty...

Greetings blogger friends!  As I have been shorter on time lately with the second shift job I was working, I have asked the permission of my wonderful DT bosses, Hazel and Deanne, if I could use one card for my commitments, just for this month.  They agreed, so here is the card:
Over at Christmas Cards All Year Round, we are using bright colors to inspire you this month.  I had this Reindeer - Christmas goodies image on my desk, begging for color, so I figured he would go great with some brighter colors.  My collection of Christmas dp isn't necessarily very bright, but I thought these 2 papers from MME's Merry Little Christmas 6x6 pad were pretty close.  A nice bright blue card stock from my stash compliments it well, I think.
12 Months of Christmas Link Up #20:  ATG or optional Christmas confectionery theme
CHNC #294:  Color brown (a little or a lot)
Crimbo Crackers #113:  Blue Christmas theme
Christmas Card Challenges #36:  Optional "Angels" theme or ATG
Simon Wednesday:  Let's Go Wild (reindeer are pretty wild, right?)
Thanks for joining me today!  Make sure you check out the Christmas Cards all Year Round blog and Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra blog for the mid-month posts...I know that both Design Teams have fabulous samples to inspire you!  I gotta run...we have a new movie to watch! 
God Bless!
