New Little Reindeer Sprite Gift With Purchase From Aurora Wings

EEEK!  Tell me he's not the cutest EVER!  This little guy is the newest Sprite from Aurora Wings and he's being offered as a Gift With Purchase this weekend.  More about that later, 'cause there's a coupon, too.  WooHoo!  Meet little Reindeer Sprite.  I couldn't wait to color this little guy.  He looks a little sleepy, or maybe a bit wistful so I made up a story about him while making this tag.

My original thought was to do him (or her) in pastel for a "Baby's First Christmas" card, but then remembered this week's Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge that also calls for "Anything but a Card", so I used the natural browns and red and made a tag instead. 

My story is that this little reindeer is dreaming of "running with the big dogs" (or should I say "flyin' with the big DEER"?) and pulling Santa's sleigh, but he's still too little.  Santa told him to "Believe" and he will surely grow up to be one of the chosen few.  The reindeer clip and embroidered stag ribbon represent the current team and I've also added sleigh bells strung with twine from DL.Art and some punched snowflakes distressed with ink with Nuvo Drops for the centers.  The stitched ribbon has been recycled from old Anthropologie shopping bags (got LOTS of it!) and there's faux stitching on the DP, as well.

Here's a closeup of Reindeer Sprite.  He's colored with Copics, fussy cut and popped on the tag.  I've used gold gel pen for his bell.

You want him, don't you?  I mean who can resist that face?  Well, as I said earlier, he's a Gift with Purchase for this weekend only with a $5.00 minimum purchase from either OR AW Etsy.  And better yet, there's a Coupon you may use in conjunction with the offer!  So hop to it!  Ya snooze, ya LOSE.

OOPS!  You missed it, but the good news is he's now in the shop HERE at and HERE on Etsy.
