3 challenges in one!

I am a little rusty at making cards!  So I have made a very simple card to fit 3 challenges:

CPS 
This week is CPS Year in Review Week. To play along just pick any sketch from 2010 (#148-#198). To see all past CPS sketches you can click on the link in the left sidebar.
I picked number #163




Simon Says
This week, our challenge is an easy one - ANYTHING GOES! We know what a busy time of year this is for everyone, and it is time to spend with family and friends, so we are going easy on y'all this week!

Stamp Something
Our theme this week is to create something with a tag or pocket on it!




Me thinks my card needs a bit of umph!  Aww well least I got it done in time for the challenge.

Ingrediants

Papers are from an old paper pad
Ribbon another one I have had for ages
Tim Holtz reinkers - Vintage photo, bundled sage, peeled paint, mustard seed, dried marigold, tattered rose, fired brick - Running with Scissors

Reindeer food

I decided to make some Reindeer food again this year, it was an idea that I "borrowed" from Aimee's nursery school, I thought it was such a fantastic idea, of course now she is a big girl of 7 she doesn't get it anymore!  I also made 4 more for her cousins who are in and around the same age!

I used one of the beautiful Belles 'n Whistles stamps designed by THE Elisabeth Bell I used Tim Holtz reinkers to colour in the images!


This is the wonderful poem that I included with the Reindeer food, probably got from Aimee's nursery!
