Word Art Wednesday Challenge #211 & Update...

          Hello everyone! Welcome to Word Art Wednesday Challenge #211! We would love to have you join in on the Word Art Wednesday challenge this week and by doing so you could win some great prizes too! After you have finished at my blog, just click here to be taken over to Word Art Wednesday where you can find out all the details on how you can play along.
          Before I share my creation with you, I wanted to let you all know that I will be having surgery and therefore will be taking some time away from my blog and Design Team duties. Currently it is looking like it will be about a month long break but if I'm feeling well enough I will be back sooner ;) It's hard to keep me from my crafting, lol! While I'm away you can still play along in the Word Art Wednesday Challenges so be sure to visit their blog each week!     
          Now for my card today I was blessed to be given a super duper adorable image from one of this week's sponsors, Image That. The image is called Red Nose Reindeer and I just can't get over how cute it is!! I adhered all my layers to a 5 ½” x 5 ½” square side fold card base. I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to the top as well as some Wink of Stella to the antlers, holly berries, bells, hooves, and his nose. For the music notes and the stamping on the inside I used a stamp set called Rudy from Craftin Desert Divas. Of course to finish my card, I stamped and decorated the back of my card as always ;) I am sure you all probably spotted an error in my card... I totally forgot to color his tongue! Things like this is why my family says me being a natural blonde cannot be hid by a bottle of hair dye no matter how dark I go, lol! Silly me!
         Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! It truly means the world to me! I wish you all a very blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving!
