Rudolph and Vivi

Hello! I hope your week is going great so far! I am so excited about the four day weekend! I don't do the Black Friday shopping thing - way too stressful! But I am looking forward to a day of relaxing with my family and maybe watching a few Holiday movies.....What are you looking forward to?

I had this idea of turning the deer from the Forest Friends set by The Greeting Farm into Rudolph. I used Amy's method of altering (she does a great tutorial on Club Anya). Her method is much easier and better than what I have always done, so I think I will go to it first from now on! My method always involved a lot of tracing and cutting out and layering.....Anyway, once I had Rudolph I thought he and Vivi could be delivering packages to their friends at the North Pole.I did a little altering on Vivi too, giving her a bit more hair. I also used NO patterened paper on this so it qualifies for the Farm Fresh Friday challenge! Woo Hoo!

The Details:
Stamps: Forest Friends, Vivi - The Greeting Farm
Paper: Bermuda Bay - SU, Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush, Pure Poppy, White - PTI
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Whisper White Craft
