 Hello my friends, and welcome back to my blog!  I hope your weekend is starting off well; at the time this post goes live, I will be working some OT.  It's only 4 hours, so hopefully time will fly!  

ANYWAY, today is the first day of Bugaboo's HOLIDAY CHAOS WEEK!  Are ya'll ready to have some fun? This year's theme is REINDEER GAMES, and that is also the main theme for today's project:

I made another slimline card!  I am having a great time making this style of card, so expect to see more of these on the old blog.  This one is the "standard" 8.5" x 3.5" size.  The images that I used are the Deer image and the Sign It - North Pole image.  I wanted to create a scene with Rudolph and Clarice where they were headed off to join the Reindeer Games.  To make Clarice, I used the same deer image and cut off the antlers, and also added more spots to her hind end.  I found a bow in the Rawr stamp set from Lawn Fawn that was PERFECT for Clarice's head!  For the sign, I figured all the signs at the North Pole would look just as fancy and frilly as the actual North Pole sign, so that's how I colored it.  I added the text using my Silhouette program.  All images were colored using alcohol markers.  With the North Pole being a snowy place, I added lots of Star Dust Stickles to the sign also.  
Speaking of my Silhouette, the scalloped layer is a cut file that I bought from the Silhouette store and sized to fit this card.  The snowy ground was cut using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside Borders, and I cut it from ink jet printable glitter paper from Recollections.  Of course my pictures don't do this paper any justice, but it actually matches the Star Dust Stickles nicely.  The die cut snowman up in the top right corner was cut from the same glitter paper, and I cut his hat and scarf from white and colored them with markers.  The die set these come from is MFT's Scenic Snow Globe.  I thought adding him up there was just the right touch, as I am alluding to Sam the Snowman from the Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer show we all grew up watching every year.  Always my favorite!
My sky was blended using Tumbled Glass Oxide ink, Taylored Expressions Blender Brushes, and a stencil I made from Lawn Fawn's Puffy Cloud Borders dies.
