Merry Everything

Now, I am not the most confident person in the world, my friends will vouch for that.  What I do mostly is bluff.  As Hilary Mantel said of Thomas Cromwell in Wolf Hall/Bring Up The Bodies you have to "arrange your face".

So, to enter a challenge that caught my eye, not only have I had to arrange my face, but everything else as well.  This challenge is daunting and my card is very simple with nowhere to hide.

My MFT Merry Everything stamp set arrived this week and I just had to get a reindeer inky
The arrival of the stamps coincided with me spotting the Sketch Challenge over on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog
Mine is a very basic interpretation of the sketch

So I have used the Merry Everything stamp set
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and fussy cut
Sentiment from the same set
Gingham papers from the MFT Tiny Checks pad

and that's it
