I'm Thankful for Christmas CraZy

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you and yours are having a great day of feasting, gathering, chatting, and more! Oh, and did I mention feasting? Make the most of this day when we focus on giving thanks!

And before you go, let me also say... Merry! Merry Christmas, that is.

I have hosted the Christmas CraZy swap on SCS this year. Every other month we I randomly select pairs of swappers to share an image/papers with each other. This is the last round, as I've decided not to do this again in 2018. But it has been a GREAT year.

This round Lynn was my partner and what an amazing partner she is. She sent me the most incredible deer (and a die cut Merry Christmas plus gorgeous papers). THANK YOU, Lynn!

 Just look at the deer! It is inked in layers to give it that realistic look. Let me tell you, Lynn must have better eyesight than I do because I don't think I'd ever be able to get the layers lined up like that.

Here's a close-up of the deer:

Here's the inside:

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

The items Lynn sent:

Gina Marie Designs Deer stamped with PaperTrey Ink Fine Linen, Classic Kraft and Dark Chocolate, SU Creamy Caramel, and Versafine Onyx Black Inks

Basic Grey Designer Paper

Sizzix Home for the Holidays die (SU Cherry Cobbler and Tempting Turquoise)

I also used the following from my stash to make the card:

Recollections Ivory and SU Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso CS

Buttons and Twine from unknown vendors

How the image is inked looks great. I like the image paired with the papers - great layout. BTW, he reminds me of Andy the Antelope that was in my dad's garage! LOL Another 'thank you' out to the neighbor who took him home!
