The Master Builder

Simon Says Stamp and Show your NUMBERS for this weeks challenge and I have promised myself that I would start my Christmas cards to save any last minute rush, so here is my first......
This is one of my all time favourite stamps, It's an old Inkadinkado stamp which they discontinued which I will never understand as it is one of those stamps that does not date.  Well this was the starting point for my card.
I have stamped the images in DI Bundled Sage and Fired Brick.  The reindeer is from a Darkroom Door set again another set I love mainly because the images don't date and can be used from year to year.  I have added my stamped piece onto co-ordinated Bazzil card and machine stitched around the edge, which was a challenge for me as I have not used a machine since I was 14, a long time ago LOL.  I have punched two snowflakes from co-ordinated card and added 25th Dec to the bottom, I know it's subtle but they are my numbers for the challenge.  Have a great day,  Tracy xx

What a WONDERFUL sentiment, and you are right, it does not date at all! It gave me that neat shivery feeling when I read it, so special! The whole card is fab, love the mixed inks on the reindeer and the stitching around the edge!
