Wanna Play some Reindeer Games

March layout

There is a new challenge up over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  Since it is the first week of the month, that means that the new challenge is a sketch challenge, and this sketch is especially fun.

EK Gorman, 52CCT March sketch aI decided to play with a little holiday humor for this week’s card, so I pulled out this super sweet puppy from Newton’s Nook and stamped him out onto some white cardstock.  I quickly colored him in with my copics markers and then die cut the cardstock with a Craftin Desert Divas die.

I trimmed up some black card stock and added the circle, cutting of the edge that hung off.  Then I die cut a star and filled it in with some red stickles, adding a few drops here and there and a touch of glitter to the pup’s head band.

Finally, I heat embossed some white embossing powder over a Art Impressions sentiment that I thought worked perfectly with the puppy.

I can’t wait to see how you play with this week’s sketch challenge.  Are you going to be serious or humorous?  Till then, happy crafting!



  1. So cute and he really doesn’t look like he wants to play! I rather think he has some stupid human on his mind! LOL I am sure all the props put on animals some times is not what they had in mind. But this design is still so funny! Thanks for the laugh!
