Rudolf the Retro Reindeer

Hello!  Only 10 days until Christmas! Thank you for your sweet comments on my last post of my kids with Santa!  :>  It's been a busy couple of days over here.  On Monday I went shopping for 10 hours, yes you read that right 10!  My SIL and I went to a mall across the city and all the stores along the way, did a lot of searching and thinking so that's why it took so long!  We also enjoyed a nice dinner at Olive Garden, yum!  I only have 1 present left to buy!  And many to make!  ACK!  Yesterday I went with Ariel on her class field trip to a retirement home.  They sang Christmas songs and poems!  It was so sweet!  Driving on the bus for a half an hour each way was not!  

I have another Christmas card to share today!  This one I made with Retro Christmas, I really love this reindeer!

I embossed the background with my Tim Holtz folder, isn't it pretty?  The bottom is velum that I hand cut to shape than lined with glossy accents and glitter over top! The twine is from The Twinery,  love there twine!

I better run!  I hope to catch up on blogs tomorrow when Ariel is in school!  :>
