Delightful Challenges

Hello again.  Thanks for coming back.  If you're here to see my post for the MTME Pretty Patterns #39 challenge, just scroll down a bit.

This week's challenge at Delightful Challenges is....

Blue Christmas

Now, I'm not talking about crooning or swiveling hips here.  We're talking about the color blue, feeling blue 'cuz you miss someone, or what the heck, let The King inspire you, too.  Here's what I did with the challenge...

This front image is Window Reindeer.  Now when I heard that challenge was Blue Christmas, I immediately thought of missing loved ones.  So I imagine this little guy as looking into a window of his woodland friends' cabin, wondering when they were going to return.

And when you open the card, you see why he's wishing to be indoors....

Even though the snowy fields and starry sky are quite peaceful and serene, it's ttttooo cccc-cold outside for our furry little friend.

Image: Window Reindeer, Snowy Night Background
Card stock: Neenah Classic Crest, Night of Navy
Copics: C8, C10, E34, E37, E53, YG63, YG67
Embellishments: ribbon (Offray), metal snowflake (unk)

Join us won't you and please share your story behind your card.  I'd love to hear it.
