Reindeers in Training

This stamp is too cute, I have made this for my cousin and thought it was very apt as she has three children. Realise now of course that I should have made the hair colour match each one oh well never mind. I used a different shape card for me, have found myself in a square card phase for a while now and thought i really should use some of the cards I bought when I first started crafting. This was from QVC and I bought 200 different shapes, only these ones and the tiny A7 left. If any one has any ideas on how to use up the A7 size other than place cards please let me know.

I have used all snippets on this card apart from the image. I was busy making a Secret Santa box for my crafty friends and used the papers and kraft card to decorate it. As they were already on my desk they didn't even make it to the snippet draw lol. Only problem was that the sentiment strip wasn't long enough so I cut it and stuck it behind the image so if I hadn't told you you would never have known...

Great card Amanda. I particularly like the mittens on string. Sometimes I think I should go back to this especially when shopping as I have left too many gloves on the counter (or dropped on the floor)!
Great colouring and lovely paper!

Oh this is cute!!!! I love it. I like your festive ribbon effect too.

Apparently we're supposed to be donkey racing later . . . not sure HOW when there's only one donkey . . . . . .

As to your A7 dilemma . . . how about making toppers with them? Or cut them into ATC size 2.5 x 3.5 inches???
