Been Busy....

I have a table at a craft fair next weekend, so I have been busy making little gifts. I have seen over at Splitcoast stampers these little gifts of reindeer food. I just love the poem that goes with it so felt the need to make some.

I printed the poem onto Whisper White card using Red, Green & Black ink then used the reindeer from the 'A Holly, Jolly Christmas Set' set and inked him up with Close to Cocoa ink. His nose had to be red of course and I placed some Glossy Accents on top to make the red stand out even more. The reindeer food is porridge oats with glitter mixed in. I'm afraid it isn't showing up in the photo but it is there....

Here is the poem for anyone who wants to have a go at making some:

Magical Reindeer Food

Sprinkle on the lawn at night
The moon will make it sparkle bright
As Santa's reindeer fly and roam
This will guide them to your home.

I have also been making some of these beautiful little mice.

I found these mice over at Dawns' Blog and just had to make them. What do you think? aren't they just so cute. Dawn has made a brilliant tutorial on her blog and has kindly shared her template. Check out all her other tutorials, there are some brilliant things on there. Anyway better had get on..... I have another 30 of these cut out ready to make up. I am currently doing the faux stitching around the ears........ahhhhh

Carole, these are just great little gift ideas. I am currently working on ideas for my craft stall at our school fayre, and I have done very similar packaging to the reindeer food with 'Freeze Dried Snowballs' in! Hope all goes well at the fayre.
