Grungy Monday #28 and SSSS Some Tickets

Well I squeezed in a little play time today and just in the nick of time for Linda's Grungy Monday #28 and Simon Says Stamp and Show Some Tickets!  For GM we are following Tim's Piece for the Ranger Ink Great Pumpkin Challenge and just like many of my GM Challenge Buddies, there is not a pumpkin to be found!!  Now here is what I came up with! 
I cut my "Foil Tape Sheets" using Tim's carved ornaments and new movers and shapers mini deer and number, then followed the steps in the above link.  I did adhere my carved ornament foil piece to a piece of chipboard for depth.  After the pieces where inked, I also shaded with black and gave my little deer an eye and of course the red nose!  I used Tim's designer paper for the ticket and added foiled numbers a little Spica glitter here and there.  The Core'dinations background was embossed and sanded.  I did the background with embossed and debossed snowflakes and really liked the debossed look for this!  BTW, the red tinsel trim on the bottom is from WalMart and it was very inexpensive!    The silver tinsel stem was inked with red alcohol ink.

Wishing all of you a great week and I can't believe we have less than a month until Christmas!  How did that happen?  Thank you a bunch for stopping by today!

Terry, this is really nice. I haven't played much with my foil lately, love how you used it.
I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful. Ours was nice. Usually it's just the three of us, but we had another family of three join us that were on their own too. It was nice. Had to trade in the van--sigh--but we got a Kia for a great price so no more breakdowns. Was thinking of you and thot I'd stop by. =)
