Happy New Year Card and Wooden Reindeer

Hi Ladies
This is the first time I have had today to post something, busy busy busy, I just need a few more hours in the day to cram everything in lol, so onto my New Year Card and my Wooden Reindeer I made and finished it Christmas Eve but did not have time to post it.

The image I use for the card is a free one from Lyn at Spiders Corner, thank you Lyn.

I water coloured the image and glittered it, mounting it on  lattice punched paper I did with a M/S punch then added ribbon, before mounting I  added corners with an EK punch.  I added glitter to the flowers and leafs, for the centre of each flower I used spacers and brads from Hobby House, finally adding some bling.

The inside I used the same lattice punch for the mount and EK for the corners.

Below is my reindeer I made to match the Santa I did, the antlers were really fiddly and I got paint everywhere again lol, but I did have fun and I am so proud of him and he looks good next to Santa, he will also be going to the grandchildren with the Santa when I go home again, wow my hand luggage is getting larger as we speak lol.

I have entered my card into the following challenges:

Freshly Brewed – Celebration

Digital Tuesday - Anything Goes

Simon Says – Time to Party / Celebrate
