A Freshly Made Christmas Card (Again)

While "playing" yesterday I did a bit of blog surfing some of my favorite blogs and seen some challenges that I wanted to try.  I combined 2, the Rudolf or reindeer challenge from 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, a theme challenge,  and Freshly Made Sketches, sketch FMS142.


I actually had a cutsy little reindeer stamp but I like the elegance of this one retired from The Angel Company.  The text is from a Hero Arts set called "Celebrate Everyday".  Plus I've been making some sympathy cards for AZ Scrapbooking in Green Valley, AZ so here is another...


This is the card and matching envelope.  The text is from a set called "All Year Greetings" by Fiskars and the plant is from a retired set by A|Muse Studios.


The text on the inside is from a set by Red Rubber Designs called "With Sympathy".  My husband really likes this card.  It has been interesting making sympathy cards since last Saturday we held the Memorial for my mom's passing.  But then, a nice guy in their church passed Tuesday and I'm going to need some for myself.

I think that reindeer is elegant too. In fact, the whole card is elegant and so lovely. Thanks so much for joining us this week at 52CCT.
