CHNC Extra January 2017 DT Inspiration Post

Can you believe it?  It's 2017 already!  I know I am having a hard time believing it...another year behind us, and hopefully many, many more to go!  Well, back to the reason I'm share my DT make for Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra blog:
Of course, this has an adorable Bugaboo image on it; Chibi Reindeer, to be specific.  This cutie has been sitting on the desk, all colored up and waiting patiently for his turn to be added to a card.  He was very quiet for most of the wait, I have to give him that!  I need a starting point for my card, so I went searching through my favorite blogs for a sketch and found this one from Freshly Made Sketches:
I loved the simplicity of this one.  I decided to widen the gap between the upper and lower panels to add my sentiment, and popped both panels up on fun foam.  Chibi is also popped up using fun foam.  Baby blue Stickles was added to all the snow, and ColorBox Robin's Egg ink was used to stamp the Hero Arts sentiment.
Please be sure to check out my teamies' creations for our month-long challenge, and join us as often as you like...who knows, you could be the random winner of 4 great digis at the end of the month :)
