Reindeer Games...

Good morning everyone!

I wanted to pop in today and share my last Christmas card of the year... I made several cards similar to this one for all of my dog-loving family members and friends! :)
It features a sweet puppy image from Bugaboo Stamps and the papers are from Carta Bella. I used My Favorite Things dies for the rounded stitch rectangle, pierced fishtail flags and pierced rectangle. The floral background panel was cut with an Avery Elle stitched die and to finish it up I added some red sequins.

And since I won't post again until after Christmas I wanted to show you the little gift card holders/bags that I made for my nieces!
I cut the bags out of kraft cardstock using a Lawn Fawn die... the papers, ephemera and mini tags are from Pebbles- the Merry Merry collection. The 'joy' die cut is from MFT, the confetti/sequins and twine are from my stash and there you have it... three quick and easy gift bags!
