Oh Deer!

Happy Wednesday! The week is flying by. My cold or allergies or whatever this is is keeping me home. I was afraid I might pass something on to the twins or the other kids at Head Start today so I didn't go in. I really missed that. That is often the highlight of my week. But I did get a card done. And believe it or not, it's a Christmas card.

That cute image is from Dasher and Dancer stamp set from Beccy's Place. I just love the expression on the deer's face. The sentiment fits perfectly from the same set. I used the Sketch Saturday sketch for inspiration. I tore the edges of the plaid paper and punched the snowflakes. The image was colored with Spectrum Noir makers and die cut with Gina Marie Designs Cross Stitched Rectangles. The sentiment was die cut with MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags and then inked with Barn Door distress ink. I used Glossy Accents on the bells around the deer's neck.
I am entering these challenges:
I think I am heading for bed early tonight. I keep hoping that if I get more sleep this will go away. Thanks for stopping by today and come back and visit again soon. Have a wonderful Thursday!

Great take on that sketch! I love the look on that deer's face. I think it looks how we all would look if we did not make our Christmas cards ahead of

Thanks for taking part in the April Rudolph Days Challenge.

You did a wonderful job interpreting the sketch Donna, your card looks fabulous and I like the fact that you can use some scrap patterned paper. Love the two snowflakes and the fabulous die cut rectangle with the punched edges.
I hope you're feeling better very soon!

Hi Donna, hope your allergy/cold is much better today. Those bugs are just a bummer to deal with, never knowing for sure if you might be contagious. I can sympathesize. Love this darling little Rudolph and how well you did the sketch with this CAS design. The torn strip of plaid paper really sets off the square focal image and the rich card base, and the expression on this little Rudy's face just goes perfectly with the sentiment! TFS & have a great week.
