Merry Monday 125

Monday, September 8, 2014

It's Monday so that means it's time for a new challenge at Merry Monday.  This week Debbie is challenging us to use a vehicle or some kind of transportation on our card.  Well that was a stumper for me as I didn't have anything like the cute images the design team used.  But as I perused my stash I stumbled on an image that is connected to transportation in a fictional, fantasy-land kind of way.  Don't judge me!



The image you see is a reindeer.  And reindeer are what Santa use to pull his sleigh all over the world on Christmas Eve.  And a sleigh, of course, is a type of transportation.  And this particular reindeer is so good at what he does that he won first place, as is evident by the red ribbon he wears!  That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

The layout for my card comes from the latest Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and my only regret with my interpretation of the sketch is that I wish my circle was a bit smaller.  I think it would have shown up my reindeer friend a little better.  



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get the chance to add to your Christmas card stash by joining us this week at Merry Monday.  The design team has got some great cards to inspire you so be sure to check them out!

I totally agree that a reindeer is a type of transportation...and what a dashing reindeer he is, with his red ribbon flowing behind him. Great sentiment too!

Great story, Jen, and totally acceptable! This is 1/8th of a sleigh's engine so definitely transportation! Fabulous card - and great thinking outside the box!

First I love your story. Second the size of the circle is just right. The card is very colorful and festive.

Your blog post today made me chuckle! Similarly, my stamp collection is transportationally-challenged, so I too went for a sleigh and reindeer - definitely acceptable Jen!
