Hello Gorgeous for Addicted to CAS # 123
Peace on Earth for Paper Players # 369

Reindeer and Birdie for Paper Players # 368

Hi Everyone.  Happy Sunday.

It's my turn to host the Paper Players challenge this week and I have a tic-tac-toe challenge for you:

I decided to give everyone the chance to make a Christmas card, a fall card or any card with a butterfly.  This was because our Antipodean friends are going into Spring and I thought they might want to make something less seasonal:-)

I decided to go vertical on the first column:  Tree, Christmas and Silver and/or gold.  I have this super cute little stamp from Stamping Bella called Reindeer and Bird.  It has a tree.  It is a Christmas stamp.  All I needed was the silver/gold element - so I decided to go with gold embossing, a gold card base - and to color the reindeer gold!  Oh!  And, of course, I had to give him a red nose :-)

Here's my card:

Reindeer and Birdie (1 of 1)

I hope you will join us and play along this week.  As usual, if you are looking for some inspiration, you only have to check out the fabulous cards from our very talented design team:

On a personal note:

Well, the white stuff is still here... and it seems to have pushed out the sun.  One of the great things about living in Minnesota is that we get these amazingly sunny days with bright blue skies - even when it's 30 degrees below.  We don't often have these dull, grey days.  When we do... it reminds me of my childhood in England!  :-)   It is lovely to watch the seasons change over the wetland and the woodland and even though it is all brown right now, I know that it will be green again soon :-)

I only managed to make a single card yesterday - for some reason my head just wasn't it the right place for crafting.  Do you ever have those days?  When you want to make something, but nothing works and you try and try - and still nothing works?  Well, that was me yesterday.  In fact my first two cards ended up in the bin.  SO, I am hoping that I might have better luck today.  

Oh!  and Evelyn B.  I will recreate the rose from last week's post so that I can tell you the colors that I used for it.  I do have a couple of tips for using this particular stamp - so will type those up for you as well.

I'll be back in a couple of days with another card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

Love your gold embossed holiday card!That is a cute set.

Brrr...hard to get used to the cold isn't it? I hope the trick or treaters luck out with some decent weather!

What a cute stamp set and such a lovely card you made with it.
Hope to see some of your snow pictures before long. Snow is something we don't see much of down this way; ice yes, snow - No


How pretty this is embossed in gold, especially with the bright accents! Gorgeous!

Evelyn B

A NICE modern stamp set. Love the reindeer and your take on the gold additions!! Look forward to the info on the rose - it is so beautiful and I'll take any tip that you can give me for stamping it. Usually I can figure these things out but this one is just harder for me. Thanks!!

What a fun tic-tac-toe board this was Jaydee. We chose the same column with entirely different results. Love the fun little scene you've created, especially the reindeer befriending the little bird. Such a festive and happy card!

Joanne James

I love the sketchy feel to this little Christmas scene Jaydee and adore the reindeer's red nose and all that gold embossing. Snow? Yikes! It has turned much colder here the last couple of days but as it's been unseasonably mild it's probably about time. Hugs to you and hope your mojo returns this week (we all have days like this)!

What a fabulous card - I love reindeer on Christmas cards - I'm gong to have to look for this lovely set

Diane Oliver

Jaydee... long time ... I haven't been 'posting' much as it almost became a second job... 8-)

I just had to pop and say I LOVE this cheery card. So different and so darn cute! Hugs Diane

Annie Abrahamson

This card is so whimsical and I love all the gold! Hope you're staying warm but enjoying the snow. We rarely get very much out here but I love it! Hugs, Annie

Claire Broadwater

Jaydee, such a fun, whimsical card! I love the gold and that little reindeer frolicking in the snow! I love your Tic-Tac-Toe board! Such a fun challenge! I know what you mean about the mojo. Sometimes, we just need a break! Hope you are enjoying your week! XX

Our weather is usually the same as yours - except it's really gloomy here today. I love that you included all our friends around the world with your tic tac toe. And your card is WONDERFUL!!!!
