CCCB286 Oh Deer


Hi, everyone!  Hope you’re having a good week so far!  The City Crafter Challenge blog is encouraging us to get ready for Christmas with this fun inspiration photo:

The last couple of weeks have been spent making some items for a little craft show at my local Curves, and a couple of items had a deer theme, so I thought I’d share those.  The first is a card using a Tim Holtz diecut deer in Baja Breeze, mounted on some old, old Christmas paper I’ve had in my stash:

I am smitten with the sentiments from Papertrey’s new set called O Holy Night; such lovely snippets from verses and carols, I just love them!  It was stamped directly on the DSP with some Early Espresso ink. 

I also had a couple of these small jar candles from another project, so I pulled out some seasonal DSP, again featuring deer silhouettes, added a banner greeting, some twill ribbon and a tiny star-embellished tag, tied with some linen thread!  I love the country look of this one too…I think country and Christmas go together so well!

We had some unseasonably warm temps yesterday, and Cassidy had no school, so I took her out for a long walk in the afternoon to collect acorns and hazelnuts; she likes to toss them in the creek that runs behind our house!




Into the creek they go!


Enjoy your day!

Love today's card - great paper background! Looks like yesterday's walk was fun - and mild enough for flip flops too! Clearly those wellies are being reserved for indoor play by Miss Cassidy!
