MDUC #126

So I'm a day late but I hope it's worth it.  I had to go and borrow my sister's camera because I dropped mine and broke the lens.  Yes, I cried.  Anyway until I can get a new one Simone's will do just fine.  Her little camera is a Nikon Coolpix and I just love it!!  

At MDUC this week the challenge is "Lost and Found".  So I had some little gold bells my girlfriend gave me (thanks Cheri) and I lost them until last weekend!!  I was so excited to find them because they went perfect with this sleigh!  I also found some chain that was wrapped around a big candle that I received last year.  

I made this sleigh using a template I bought from Sandra's Scrapshop.  She has some UH-MAZNG stuff there!!  This won't be the last time I buy from her I'm sure!!  It did however, almost end up in the garbage a few times.  LOL!!

Something really cool about her some of her templates is that you can FOLD IT TO MAIL IT!!!  I'M NOT EVEN KIDDING!!  Isn't that slick?!! 

And this little ribbon tied up underneath helps it stay open when you fold it out to the sitting position.

The snow is White Texture from Martha Stewart and I added Glitter Ritz before it dried.  It looks so much shinier in real life.  This is my new favorite snow.

Here is the opposite side:

So it's in the mail on it's way to my mom's so I had to tell her to keep off my blog. LOL!!   What I like about this piece is sure it's a card but it's also a nice decoration or candy holder.  hee hee

This is incredible!!! It looks like a ton of work, but I guess seeing your mom gave birth to you and everything (not to mention your sister, wow, that could NOT have been comfortable!) if anybody deserves a cool sleigh card, it's probably her! Well, I love it, I'm going to check out the link you posted, hugs, Roxy.
