Oh deer it is the season :) and CCCB

But before I show you my card I have to share a photo that was made on our sisterday.
I feel privileged with 5 sisters and 2 brothers; I am the youngest child  in a family of eight children.
Last Saturday me and my sisters came togther and it has been a wonderful day. Lots of talking, laughing, good food....priceless :)

On the couch from left to right:
Jacqueline , Jeanne, Annelies, Ingrid,
And sitting on the floor: me on the left and Loni on the right.

I am so happy that I finally had the chance to start with my Christmas cards; I know; it's a bit late....
But there is a start!

My card is based upon this weeks'challenge at CCCB
This week you have to incorporate an animal in your project.
I am so happy that I am submitting a card for a challenge after all the hustle and bustle of the last few months. More challenges are following soon :)
A perfect theme for a Christmas card.
This is the sentiment on the inside of my card

A bit of gingham paper and that ribbon is silver. ( Reflecting a piece of my dinnertable made from wood :)
One of my favorite text-it stamps from Waltzingmouse stamps

A bit of bling and a favorite embellishment of mine; an embossed chipboard frame from Tattered Angels. Covered with distress ink. The stamp is from one of Eline's "winter home" stamp sets:

I know that a reindeer is perfect for a Christmas card but this cute little deer is my favorite:

And here is my card:

Enjoy your evening!

Stel, wat heb je nu toch weer gemaakt? Meid, wat een pracht! Heel stijlvol, feestelijk, glorieus, maar ook een beetje ingetogen. En dan dat lieve hertje.
Van mij krijg je een 10!

Hello Stella,

What a lovely photo of you and your sisters! You look as if you have a lot of fun together. And your card is simply adorable! That little deer is just so cute, and I love the colours you've used.

Don't worry, you're not the only one who is late with Christmas cards! I haven't started mine yet, but then I have been preoccupied with moving house! Unfortunately, I think I'll have to buy most of my Christmas cards this year! At least I have a little bit of time now to visit some blogs again and catch up with your beautiful creations. xx
