Reindeer Wishes And A Stag


Firstly I do apologise if you saw this post in January, as I have my moving head on, I got my months wrong !!.  

Surprise, surprise we haven't moved and right now, it's getting to me (our buyers solicitor is useless, well all 3 of them are / have been !!, they are on the 3rd if you hadn't already twigged)  I hope you are going to make a card for the lovely Maureen's Challenge Rudolph Days Christmas Challenge, especially as I find life so much easier, when it gets to Christmas. 

I thought it was about time I made a couple of Rudolph / Deer cards, so here they are : 

Image : Penny Black - 'Reindeer Warm - Ups / 1242H / 1998'
Papers : Dovecraft - 'Merry Magic'
Mittens : Memory Box - 'Precious Mittens'

Image, Sentiment and Plaque for Stag / Deer to sit on : Came free with a craft magazine, I think it was Cardmaking and Papercraft, but the set is called 'Majestic Moments'
Papers : Prima - 'North Country'
Embossing behind Deer / Stag : Sizzix - 'Flowers, Stars & Swirls Set'
Wooden Deers from stash

Keep well and safe and thanks for looking at my blog and thank you for any comments you leave too, Luv Sam x

Two super cards Sam, a fun Reindeer on the first one and an elegant stag on the second.
Sorry to hear that you are still waiting to move, we have a friend in the same situation and there are lots of houses in our area that have sold but no one seems to be moving!

Two fabulous reindeer cards, Sam.
The challenge post will be late as my computer is broken.
My daughter will loan me hers after work.
But if a nightmare as we do not go out to the shops but guess I will order one online.
Love your cute quirky reindeer. He is hilarious.

Your second card is lovely and stately looking.
Take care and I hope your sale goes throygh soon. It must be awful to have your hands tied like that...

Hi Sam
Loved these two reindeer cards. The first one is so fun and quirky! It made me smile.

The second is very stately looking. It is really lovely.

My computer is broken and so the post will not go up till later today. I have managed to put up a message but can not do a whole post on my iPhone as I do not know how to add the photos and the hyperlinks that way.
My daughter will drop off her computer once she is home from work.

Two lovely Rudolph Christmas cards Sam, the cheeky expression on the first made me smile. Fingers crossed they will get a shift on for you!! xx

There's another two cards for your stash Sam! I particularly like the second with those delicate colours and swirl motifs. Vicky x

Bonnie said...

Love, love, love this first reindeer with all the mittens and scarf! So fun, Sam! Love the deer head too! What a great masculine card!

Brenda said...

Your first card is so stinking cute! I love that reindeer image with his antlers all snuggly in warm mittens and then his snowman ear muffs. Too cut! Fabulous papers you used as well. Those little mittens going down the side are cute too, love the snow flakes on them. Your second card had me do a double take! As I thought it was a real deer head mounted on the wall. lol Love the embossing behind your stag head and the wooden stags. Fabulous choice of papers as well. Love both of these! Yes, good to have a good stash by Christmas, so must have a play at Rudolph Days! Hugs, Brenda

Hi Sam,
Happy Rudolf Days.
Your cards are so lovely and the image on the first one is so sweet and beautifully coloured too.
What a very Majestic Stag on your second one and super design as well.
Hope all gets sorted for your move a stressful time I'm sure.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

linda said...

Aw, a fun Rudolph days card and an elegant one - both are perfectly suited!

Darnell said...

These cards are fantastic, Sam, and they really show your range of design skills from elegant to whimsical! I'm sorry you have been in such a muddle with moving due to other people's inabilities. So frustrating! Take care and keep safe. Everything always works out. Hugs, Darnell

Two great cards for Rudolph days! Loving that cute reindeer with his antlers all decked out for winter! LOL I don't envy you having to move at this time of year, but hopefully all will be a smooth transition!
