TECC43 - Reindeer Gift


For a while now I've been wanting to make some reindeer food & thought I may as well to go along with Taylor's sketch for this week. I think it would be real fun for my sister & Gabby to follow the instructions on Christmas Eve as they await the arrival of Santa:

"Sprinkle on the lawn at night
The moon will make it sparkle bright
As Santa's reindeer fly and roam
This will guide them to your home"

I stamped REINDEER FOOD with white StazOn ink on the cello bag using my Brayton font by JustRite Stampers, lining it up on my Harmony Rectangular wood stamp and again on the bag topper, which I kept real simple. Inside the bag I used oatmeal & fire engine red glitter. The dp & other embellishments are all in the Christmas key ingredients package - all supplies available in the Taylored Expressions store. I sugared up my brads in the upper left by dipping them in the essentials glue pad (I got in a LSS in Seattle) & then the fire engine red glitter. FUN!

Here is Taylor’s sketch so you can play along too!! You can be eligible to win Cupcake Sampler Honors & be featured on Taylor’s blog using the next Cupcake Friday Sketch! You’re not required to use cupcakes on your sketch, but if you got ‘em why not use ‘em?? You can create something other than a card but try to keep as close to the sketch as possible. If you’re uploading to Splitcoast, please use keyword TECC43. Leave a comment on Taylor’s post with a link to your blogpost or gallery link so she can check it out! You must have your creation uploaded by Monday, November 24 at 8:00 a.m. PST to be eligible for the featured cupcake sampler honors. Lastly, be sure to have FUN creating!
