"Santa's Reindeer" ..and a twist..a "Tara Reed" design


This is a card I made using a stamp from "Janlynn" called "Santa's Reindeer"

Even tho you can make a million cute Christmas cards with this guy I decided he looked like he could be missing someone too... I have been blessed to have my 4 children home with me every Christmas but one. My oldest (30 next month) lives in North Carolina and one year he decided he should work instead. That was one of the worst holidays I ever had. We thought it would be okay, ..he needed the money...WRONG..On Christmas day we KNEW we had figured wrong. We missed him so much and things were just not the same. Since then we have been together every Christmas. Now I know this wont always be..but for now I will appreciate it! My heart just breaks for our Military men away from their families at Christmas and I dont know how they do it. God Bless them ALL and their families. On to the card recipe! DP is Memory Box, "Dewfrost". I used a couple MS punches and colored with Copics! TFL! Check out all the new and CUTE stamps over at Janlynn! You wont be disapointed!
