Happy Holidays!

Greetings!  Thank you to all of my dear friends who sent words of encouragement earlier this week concerning Hurricane Sandy.  I am happy to report that although we were prepared for the very worst, we were spared the heartache felt in New Jersey and New York.  Some how we managed to keep our power throughout the high winds and though we live one block from a river that flooded our home a year ago, we incurred no flooding this time.  This post is to share a card I created for The Funkie Junkie Twelve Tags of Christmas, Tag 7 Challenge, which is being sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique
Linda has graciously allowed us to make other than a tag and I continue to make cards for the challenge.  Linda's beautiful tag is shown below.  For my own card, I was inspired by the following elements: the reindeer, the sentiment, snowflakes, and trees.  As my reindeer stamp seemed a bit contemporary, I chose a tree stamp by Studio G along the  same lines. The sentiment is also by Studio G. The snowflake stickers and punched snowflakes are from Martha Stewart.  

I hope you will stop back on Saturday evening for the latest challenge at Fashionable Stamping.  My posts will be scarce the following two weeks, as my dear husband is undergoing some medical treatments out of town.  Since the Hurricane, my Internet access has been spotty.  I will hope for the best and will try to keep up with all of you and your posts.  Best wishes my friends, Yvonne

Hello Yvonne
You have taken the elements from Linda's Tag and made a gorgeous card, what I particularly like is the vibrant Red. The reindeer look fantastic. Gosh if you had held this post one more day you could have put it into 'Our Creative Corner's Silhouette Challenge'.
You could make another!!!!

Hi Yvonne. So glad to hear you are safe and sound following hurricane Sandy, what devastation it caused and my heart goes out to everyone who has been affected by it.
I love your very contemporary take on Linda's tag with such vibrant colours.
I hope all goes well for your hubbie.
Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Yvonne
Thank goodness you were spared from the devastation of Sandy.
Beautiful card, those reindeer are just that little bit different.
I hope all goes well for your DH next week.

Super take on this week's tag, Yvonne. Your contemporary reindeer make the card look very merry. Wonderful color combo and the snowflakes are lovely. Another terrific entry into the 12 tags challenge. Thanks so much for playing along!
