The Magic of Christmas

Hello sweet friends.  Sugar Nellie recently released some adorable Christmas digis so I've used one of these to make my card today.


This little cutie is Reindeer Games.  Don't you just love that reindeer she's riding?  I never had a reindeer like this but I did have a horse!  Do they still make these toys? I know when I go shopping for my grandson everything seems to be high-tech or battery-operated.  Next time I go toy shopping I'll have to look around to see if I can spot one of these ;-)  OK, so enough blabbering.  I colored my image with copics and colored pencils and used lots of Glamour Dust and Star Dust Stickles for sparkle.  I used Liquid Pearls for her "pearl" earrings.  I added some jingle bells to the bow and pearls to the glittery snowflakes.  The sentiment is from the Crafty Impressions - Someone Special stamp set.  You can find these wonderful Christmas digis and holiday sentiments over at Funky Kits. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.

Hugs, Anita
