Howdy friends!  I'm back today to share my card for this week's Oldie But Goodie feature on the Catch the Bug blog.  Here it is:

This active fella is called Reindeer - Skate.  Isn't he just the sweetest?  He sure looks like he's having some fun skating, doesn't he?  I printed this guy out pretty large, and decided to back him with this panel made from a thermal laminator packet that has extra fine white glitter sandwiched between the layers.  I got this idea originally from this video by Attic Lane on YouTube, and have just now gotten around to trying it out.  Jennifer McGuire recently did this technique also in this video, and I would encourage you to check both of them out!
So, I colored this fella up using alcohol markers in traditional red and green, and I guess he must be Rudolph since his nose is red!  The sentiment comes from one of the new Recollections Christmas sentiment sets I picked up recently at Michael's.
