Festive Friday Dashing Through the... Sand

Almost to the half-way point, how strange is it to say that?! But here we are in June already!
Terri Sproul hosts this lovely blog hop every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month - and we're making Christmas Cards! If you're just joining please be sure to start at the beginning of the blog list (below for your convenience) and catch all the great projects posted by these talented ladies!

June has brought me into calmer territory than last months frantic fiascos and festivities, I hope - this week is not looking calm! I swear, if we could skip these spring months my life would be a bit more manageable! (kidding, totally kidding! ok, not totally...)

Today I share a card using a retired stamp. I love Dasher. So sad he is no longer in the catalog for you. The good news, they do have a stamp that is similar- with even a little extra fun added! (Check out Christmas Deer 128144 Wood /128146 Clear ) But this card had been made already, so you get to see this version. If I pick this as our card this year, I would definitely swap it out to the current stamp.

Pin It
Dasher and the Snowflakes from Snow Swirled are stamped in Sahara Sand, the center panel is actually very vanilla sponged with Sahara Sand and the strip behind it is an untouched Very Vanilla piece. The Ridinghood Red panel is punched with the Eyelet Border (retired) and accented with a retired scrap of ribbon. I added some dots of white with my Signo Gel Pen, you could bling it up a bit more with some Jewels - either the Basic Pearls or Basic Rhinestones would be pretty. 

Thanks for stopping by! Please continue to add to your holiday inspiration and visit all the lovely blogs participating in this Festive Friday blog hop!
Next on the path is The Robins Nest. Enjoy!!

Happy Crafting,
