Challenge me a Christmas Card with Therese Calvird

Welcome! Last year, I did a series on my blog where I asked people to set me a Christmas card challenge. This year, I'm stepping it up a notch, by asking crafty friends to join me!
How cool is this graphic!! My crafty friend, Kylie Purtell, made it especially for me! YAY!  You can check out her blog HERE.

Today, the challenge theme is The Night Before Christmas.

My special guest today is Therese Calvird - you can check out her take on this challenge HERE.

Here's my take:
I stamped all of the reindeer, trying to match the image to their name just a bit, and then I hand-wrote the lines from the poem.

 Now Dasher! Now Dancer!
 Now Prancer and Vixen!







On Comet! On Cupid! 
On Donner and Blitzen! 









And then my Dad suggested that you can't have the 8 reindeer without the 9th, so I added Rudolph inside the card.  
I used the "Little reindeer agenda" stamp set from Mama Elephant - they're just so cute!
I actually made 2 cards for this challenge, but I decided that the first one I made was too similar to a card I made a few years ago (it had a mouse in a Christmas stocking, and the sentiment "Not a creature was stirring".) I'm glad I decided to make a new card - this one is much more fun!

Thanks for visiting :)

  3. Your card is absolutely fabulous Michelle, and so darn cute! LOVE your Father's idea of hiding Rudolf inside the card, maybe I should consult him for some of my designs too (my hubby is not the most helpful wink). Also, I just want to say a big thank you for including me in your challenge this year, I totally had a blast!
