Emboss It - CSAYL Challenge #45

Happy Friday to you! The Christmas Stampin All Year Long challenge is to create a Christmas card and have some Embossing on it. I decided to use one of my Cuttlebug Embossing Folders for a quick holiday card.

The reindeer is from a retired TAC Set. For the sentiment I just punched out a circle from pattern paper. I'm not totally pleased with this card - and I have to tell you I had such different hopes for my card this week. BUT for whatever reason (lack of time, headache, life, family, etc.) I didn't get to start this as early as I'd hope. The embossing does add a little "wow" to the card though.

Be sure to stop by the CSAYL blog to see the other creations. While you are there why not play along and link your creation! We'd love to see it!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous weekend - I'm going to prioritize some projects and HOPEFULLY get LOTS accomplished! First thing though the headache needs to go away and I need to get some creative juices going...I'm just not feeling it these last few days!
