Reindeers for the Christmas Card Club!

Well Hello at last Folks, finally here.  I'm later than usual posting my card, I usually schedule it for this morning having set it up on Saturday nights.  Most of yesterday my broadband was down, seemingly there was extensive maintenance going on, and wasn't up and running till last night, just such a pest.  Haven't managed around your blogs yet either.  Then to cap it all, I seem to have lost my camera, can't think where it could be, and I'm really annoyed about it as there are loads of photos of all sorts of things on it.  It must be somewhere here...but.......

Anyway thanking you all for the lovely comments on my last card, your all as usual very kind and it gives me lots of encouragement.

So I'm here today with my card for the friendly Christmas Card Club and this time the theme was chosen by Rita and it's Reindeers,
I've used my Tablet to take the photo, and I'm not familiar with the camera side of it, and the fact that it's all silver didn't help.
The base card and the Topper is from Hunkydory, from their Christmas Elegance range which I've had for a couple of years.
Silver Twine and Charms from the Ribbon Girl
Grey and Black flowers from my box sprayed with Crafter's Companion Silver Spray
MB leaves cut in silver
Gems from my box

It's not a great photo, I hope you can see it OK.

I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday, and that you are well, sending out kind thoughts to those who are so tip top.

Hi Kate,
what a very stunning card.
I love all that glittery card, and your design too.
Isn't your reindeer charm so cute.
Now your photo looks fine taken with your tablet.
My blog friend Carole lost her camera, and she was heart broken as it was the last thing her Mum had bought for her, and she called it Larry the Lumix.
Well needless to say, she did find it again at work luckily, as she needed it to go to a friends wedding, and licky she did as the photographer's camera broke down and she lent him hers.
Now I said there is a title for a childrens book.
Larry the Lumix gets lost, and found, and saves the wedding day.
I do hope you find yours.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Such a lovely sparkly card Kate and the silver has actually photographed really well. Often it comes looking very dark, almost black. Hope you come across your camera soon. My uncle used to say "It's not lost - I just don't know where it is at the moment!" I couldn't find my mobile the other day and after searching everywhere in the end I rang it from the landline and followed the sound. Pity there's nothing like that on a camera ... lol! Hugs Christine xx

Hey Sugar! Well I certainly hope you get things squared away soon. It's hard enough to take a picture of a silver card without having to depend on your tablet. Your card really looks pretty Kate!

What a lovely silvery sparkly reindeer card for Rita's CCC challenge (would love to also see it at CHNC challenge extra for October) x

Sue said...

Hi Kate, I am missing a die I just bought and I am so frustrated that I cannot find it but know it is here someplace....so I feel your pain about your camera. Love you silvery card, so pretty. Deer are very big this year for the holidays too. Wonderful card, Kate.

Hugs
Sue

Gosh Kate...I just love all the shimmer. It so sparkles!

The pretty embossed looking border is fabulous on this card. Can not tell if it is ribbon or a coordinating piece of shimmery card. Either way...it looks wonderful!

Hope to get by more often, finally finished boxing up the last of the things for the thrift shop. That work allowed me to get the movers in for the quotes. Have booked the move for Jan 24 so now I can get into the craft room for a bit and catch up on my cardmaking and visiting!
