MFT - Merry Everything

I wasn't going to buy any stamps this month (I always say that) but when I saw the reindeers in the new release by My Favorite Things called Merry Everything I had to buy it.  It's their faces that make me smile :-)

I wanted to use my distress inks on the background and rather than go for the usual blues, I went with a pink and purple hue by using Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac and I used the Falling Snow die by Avery Elle at the top.
 
I coloured the reindeer in with Copic markers and then die cut out some mountains using a die set which also just happened to fall in my online shopping basket which is 'Snow Capped Mountains' again by MFT.  I added some Wink of Stella to the mountain tops.
 
The snow is cut out using a Mama Elephant Landscape Trio die.

I love how this turned out and will be using that colour combination a lot from now on.
 
It's been a mixed weekend here in the Peak District.  Sunny yesterday and a wet, rainy day today (Sunday as I type this blog post).  Husbean has been busy sorting out his man cave again this weekend so it's meant more time spent in my daft (craft) room - bliss!

I shall be entering this card into Seven Hills Craft Challenge for October.

And some great news I was a showcase winner on the Less is More Challenge for the Lilac and Turquoise card I made HERE
 
and the same card also made it as an Honourable mention over on the CASology Challenge - Cute
 
 
YAY!!
