From Our House

Welcome to July!  Yikes!  Where in the world did June go???  Today begins the next challenge from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  We are a month long "Anything (Christmas related) Goes" challenge.  Our sponsor is the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps and the winner will receive 7 images of their choice (not to mention the satisfaction of having completed another Christmas card!).
One of my absolute favorite images from Bugaboo is this adorable little Plush Reindeer!  Just LOVE him!!  And what is even cuter than one Plush Reindeer?  Well, TWO Plush Reindeer! Don't you think?
 My digital cardmaking skills are pretty limited, I have to admit.  I'm quite adept at downloading them, sizing and printing, but beyond that . . . not so much.  So, I am quite pleased with myself since I managed to figure out how to rotate one of the reindeer to make a mirror image.  (Yes, I know this is probably pretty basic.)  I introduce to you Mr. & Mrs. P. Reindeer; aren't they cute!?  I added a little pink to the Mrs. and gave her a pearl pen necklace and voila!  Cuteness times two.
 I made this as a gatefold card for a little fun and interest.  This last picture shows it all opened up and the sentiment inside.  It reads "Merry Christmas from our house to yours".
