Merry Monday #45 & Moxie Fab World Challenge #60



You are probably asking yourself if I have lost my mind.  Well that happened a long time ago.  So here I am sharing with you my first Christmas card for next Christmas.  Every single year I tell myself  when I am scrambling to get all my cards done that I won't let it happen again, and then July rolls around and I see Christmas in July everywhere and I tell myself that I should get started, then it is December and I still haven't started on my cards.  

My friend Lesley Croghan has a weekly Christmas themed challenge called Merry Monday.  So I am getting started by participating in my first Merry Monday.  This week the challenge is based on this sketch!  I am also submitting this card for the Moxie Fab World Challenge #60: Make a Card with a Window.








Cardstock:  White, Classic Kraft (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps: eindeer (Hero Arts)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Dies: Classic Circles (Spellbinders)
other: assorted Copics

This is so cute. You know I love that reindeer. I think there is a Moxie Fab window card challenge--you should check it out--your card may be perfect for it. You are grumbling now, but you will be so happy next Christmas. 1 down, ?? to go.

Love your cute window design, Tracey! ANY time is always good for a Christmas card! You can never have too many :)

Your first 2013 Christmas card is adorable, Tracey! I'm going to try and play in Merry Monday, too. Last year I remember thinking, what the heck, it's too early to be making Christmas cards ... boy, was I an idiot. I, too, got caught up short last year and it was not a good feeling for someone who makes cards!

That's a great Christmas design Tracey with the image inside and viewed through a window. I'm also seriously thinking of cracking on with festive cards for later in the year too - especially as we have snow at the moment!

The little reindeer is oh so sweet and I love the window. I was just looking through my photos and given that my cards were Christmas from Sept through December I think I need to start earlier! Yikes!!

Oh, Tracey, I thought I left a comment about this delightful card, but I must have been called away before I could post it. Anyway, I love this little guy and the cutout circle to show him off! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at Merry Monday!
