Too Cute To Spook

I'm sure the title is throwing you all off...no, I'm not posting a Halloween card. LOL! 

First a little back story--I use to like googly eyes a long time ago but over the years they just started to freak me out. I look quickly and then move on-darn wiggly things! Several friends use them and I adore their projects, I just choose to overlook the freaky eyes.

Fast forward to the past couple weeks where I have joined a new yahoo group and one of the ladies makes amazing cards with--you guessed it--googly eyes. Well, after lots of banter back and forth I decided that I need to make a card with the darn googly eyes to come to peace with the wiggly things. (and she is going to make a card with "normal" eyes..LOL)

So at my craft group this weekend I was kindly given some googly eyes by one of my sweet friends. Sooooo...long story short....here's my card today featuring one cute reindeer, if I do say so myself and googly eyes!! Hence the title...he is too cute to spook me!



I used my Cricut for the reindeer-Create a Critter cartridge and then just added some accents with a white pen and some stickles. My paper is Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey. I added some bakers twine and a Kaisercraft rhinestone to finish off the card. I must say, I really do like how this turned out, googly eyes and all!



For my layout I used the sketch from iSpy Sketches this week~



Hope you have a wonderful day full of lots of smiles! Hope to see you back here soon! I *think* I have decided to make all my holiday cards this year...a little late start but I think I can pull up my big crafty girl pants and get them done so hopefully my blog will be hoppin' soon with holiday goodness!
