Is my deer overdressed for Christmas?

Hello!

A new deer came home this week, to keep Dasher company. He's named... Christmas Deer! I couldn't resist him. Apparently he can't help overdressing himself on his first outing. Way too many ornaments on this fellow tonight. This card started as something completely different, but, here it is anyway, the way it wanted to be. :-)
The stamps are SU! Christmas Deer, and PTI Stylish Sentiments: Holiday. The colours are SU! Poppy Parade, Early Espresso, and PTI Fine Linen. Pearls are SU!

I used The Play Date Cafe Challenge #150 colours.

I have to admit to something. I love Christmas. I love tinsel. I love Christmas carols. I love Santa. And when all those Christmas stamps are released, I go into a frenzy of attempting to resist, while still buying WAY TOO MANY.  Does anyone else have this problem? I love reindeer. I love snowflakes (even though Christmas is in Summer here, and it never, ever snows, EVER). I love baubles. I love Christmas trees. I love nativity scenes. Oh dear! All I can think to do to make up for this love of everything Christmas is to make hundreds of Christmas cards to make these stamp purchases worthwhile. ;-)

Such a handsome deer! I'm not surprised to see him a little "overdone". Those antlers are gorgeous! I look forward to seeing him again in some of your other holiday projects. : ) Later!

I don't think you can have too many decorations at Christmas! He looks fabulous and I love the little bird tucked in there. Love the rock and roll inking too!

Um, yeah. And not just at Christmas... Love your card - it is so elegant looking, but still with a touch of humor. Beautiful stamping.

AS for the moment, I don't really feel like Christmas just yet although I love this time of the year. But once it will be here, I'm gonna be thrilled! I love your reindeer, so good-looking! :)

This looks gorgeous Michelle. We really do need someone to make more Aussie themed Christmas stamps, but I'm not sure they would look or feel right :)

That is one party animal! I mean, literally, that is one party animal, Michelle!

It's cool that you are still like a child about Christmas - don't ever lose that! You go girl, go ahead and make only Christmas cards from now until Christmas!
