Christmas Wishes Set

I made these a couple of days ago for the Hero Arts December Contest and posted them to the Hero Arts Flickr Group already but I needed to share them here. They are already in the mail and I want to make more because they were so much fun to make! I trimmed the card base slightly smaller than the standard A2 size to accommodate the bits that are hanging off the edges. That way they fit into a standard A2 envelope for easy mailing. I wanted to make good use of the Hero Arts set Wishes Come True so I used all four in this set with the leaping reindeer from Holiday Cheer. Their sweaters are coloured with red Copic markers and bodies with warm grey Copic markers.

Thank you for stopping by during this busy week before Christmas! I have exactly three days to craft my little heart out before I have house guests for ten days so I am planning on taking full advantage of that. I don't know if I'll survive if I can't craft for that entire length of time, especially since the next Paper Crafts call comes out on Wednesday. LOL Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
