Reindeer and Texting

Several of you wanted the directions for the card I made yesterday, and you can find them at Splitcoast stampers here. They are fun to make and very easy!

I have a Christmas card to share today! I love the cute little Reindeer that Chesney Young drew, and I had a couple of these that I had colored last year but never got a chance to make into a card before Christmas came, so I used them this year!

The reindeer is colored with Copic markers and the background is chalked. It was cut out with a scalloped rectangle nestabilities die. The greeting at the top is from a Stampin' Up! set and the snowflake on the side is another one I crocheted. I popped a little white pearl in the center. The border is punched with a Martha Stewart punch.

Today is Squigglefly's challenge on the blog, and Maria is challenging everyone to use ribbon. I saw a challenge on Cute Card Thursday that they called "Texting Crazy". As soon as I saw the title of their challenge I knew what I wanted to do. So I made this and combined the two challenges!

I have a friend who loves to text and it drives me crazy! I hate texting and am always telling her to just pick up the phone and call me instead of typing to me, so this card is going to her. The image is another one of Chesney's called Texting. I love that you make the phone screen say whatever you'd like!

Well, it's another hot day week here, so I should have plenty of indoor craft time this week! I hope you have time to play too! Thanks for stopping by today!

These are so cute. I love that snowflake. I haven't found one to try yet. I must do that. They really add to your cards. Thanks so much for the directions for the card. I will give it a try.
Taxting takes me forever, and it seems to be the only thing my two sons respond too. They are in their mid twenties

Love them Holly! I agree--I hardly know how to text anyone back when they do text-so I think they give up! Your cards are awesome!

I love the reindeer he's just adorable! What an awesome message on the cell phone. I agree with the message! I have friends who only talk on Facebook, something which I rarely go on. Beautifully done.
