The Rudolph images are sooooo stinkin' cute! He makes me happy!  This is Rudolph-Ornament.  I'm having a ball this week with the mini challenges....I hope you are too!  Head over to see some fantastic creations with the SKETCH by fellow DT members at Catch the Bug Challenge post.

There is a Cowboy Christmas theme challenge going on at CDAC  and PCP sponsored by Bugaboo.  I have one cousin living in Texas who will probably get this card or Rae Anne!  Dottie is my country girl.  I don't like shoes, but I love my boots!  I "totally scraplifted" from Renee'.  When something's not broke...don't fix.  There isn't anything I wanted to change.  The boot svg is a FREEBIE from SVGCuts.  Head over and get it!  I love FREE!

  1. So fantastic! Love the reindeer....hmmm....not sure I have any of those! Must go look! Dottie is awesome! I love her. She is probably one of my favorite Bugaboo characters (next to Poppi, Stella, Gus, the Brats....okay I love them ALL! lol!).
    Great, great cards today, girl! I had one half done last night and my electric went out mid-coloring (in PSE) so I lost it. :0( Oh well....back to the beginning I go! :0)

  2. Brilliant cards - love the Rudolph card - great colour combo. Thanks for joining us at DYSU this week xx

  3. Wonderful work! Loved both! And thanks for the free SVG links too. Thanks so much for playing with us at Christmas Inspirations challenges. Hope to see you back soon.

  4. Oh my goodness Cely - now I know why I follow your blog - you INSPIRE me so often I can't even tell you!!
    I just LOVE LOVE LOVE that little cowgirl card. Being a cowgirl myself growing up, that boot certainly FITS! =) Just adorable!
    And your reindeer - the sewing is to die for (still practicing my sewing). Amazing work as usual!!!
    Hugs & Happy Days!

  5. Love the detail you added to the svg boot from svgCuts, esp. the fringe. That's a nice touch, Cely. The embossed border is great too, as are the stud and badge. Very nice card. Love the switch to purple on the reindeer card. He is so cute. He looks like you caught him doing something he wasn't suppose to ;- ) I see the heats up in your area too, stay cool.

  6. These are both just adorable! Thanks for joining us for the Do You Stack Up Challenge Blog Sew: Faux or Real Challenge! Please join us again for the next challenge!

  8. Holy cow girl! Tee Hee! Both of these are over the top! Love the Christmas balls embellies! They're awesome! One of these days I'm gonna learn how to work with SVG files. Love what they add to cards! Oh! Love the colors you used on your Rudi card!!!!

  9. So cute! I never think to do an easel card. Now I'm thinking I should give it a try again.

  10. OMGOSH!!!!! Cely!!!!!!! This is BEYOND AWESOME!!! I'm speechless.....the detail....on the boot....the buckle....the frills...you are one talented cookie! Yeeeehaw for you!!!!!!!!

  12. Love both of these, Cely, but that boot is fabby! I have Texas family and friends and am always on the lookout for cowboy/boot things for cards. You've excelled with this one!

  13. Super cute cards. Thanks for playing at IDIC.

  14. Cely, both of your cards are wondeful! So nice of you to offer the free SVG files, too! What a nice addition to this fabulous hop!

  15. That reindeer image is wonderful!!! I love the look on his face! We just got done with rodeo season here in my hometown...this would be a perfect card for some of those cowgirls!

  16. Oh my...where do I start?! Your coloring of rudolph is fabulous! Just perfect as are the colors. And his shadow is awesome! If I tried that, it would look like a pile of poop...but yours truly looks like a shadow!

    And that boot with Dottie is awesome! How do you keep all these connections in your head? You really make great outside-the-box creations!

  17. Cely!! This turned out so AWESOME!! I just love it! I love that you embossed the boot and the little cowgirl is so darned cute! You did an excellent job! You've now in return for my inspiring your card have inspired me! When you said you were going to make yours a Christmas card I instantly thought that I need to make another one for Christmas. I want mine to be Santa's boot though! Thanks for helping me think of that!

  18. Great job! I love the colors us chose!
