13 Days of Halloween Day 11 with a Twist - #213

Today there is a twist to my 13 Days of Halloween as it coincides with the third of the Inspire.Create Challenges. A simple challenge really as it is a Theme of 'Festive', which could be any celebration. As this falls within my Halloween series, I thought I would do two versions, one Halloween and one Christmas, using the fantastic, and FREE, Merry Patterns Hostess stamp set.

I must thank Dena Rekow for the inspiration behind this project, it has also set my mind running on some other ideas with the embossing folder, but more of that (possibly already!! - the joys of posting out of sequence).

Dare I say, what is not to love about a reindeer in a Nordic jumper? I am really looking forward to making a few more cards with this exclusive stamp set.

I urge you to take a look at all the other inspiration the Design Team has come up with, just click on the image below and you will jump over to the website.
