Can you name all nine?

And of course you leave the carrot for the
Can you name them all?
(I've got them listed down below in case like me you get stuck)
Quite a simple card today
I got a bit arty though and added a background scene......and I promise it's really easy to do.
The main thing you have to remember is that objects in the distance appear fainter than things in the foreground so I merely drew in some trees using pale greys N0 & N1
Also if you look outside you will see that the sky is much paler closer to the horizon, hence my sky is a blend of B000 at the top and B0000 at the bottom.
Sweetest Christmas Set - Darcies
Tin pin embellishment - Darcies

Reindeer E11, E13, E23, E25, E42, E41, W7, W5, RV32

This is gorgeous Jane, adorable image and I love the background scene you have created.
Thanks for listing the reindeer's names, I can never remember them all.
I'll guess at decorations for today.

Such a fun creation Jane and thank you for the colouring tips. I get very nervous about background detail.

Sweet. I do like how you use your greys in so many ways. I think you may be hinting for Christmas wreaths, but of course that's only one of many decorating ideas.
