Deer Friends from Artful INKables

Hello to all and sorry for my late posting...I have had that upper respiratory virus and it still has me down. I got ready for work this morning...made it there, and then it hit me...no energy...I felt like I had been "sapped" (is that really a word?) anyways, you know what I mean...So I left work and came home...I have spent the majority of my day in bed...well, the doc said that rest was the most important thing...I should have listened.

At any rate, on to my card...This set is called "Deer Friends" from Artful INKables. Is this little girl not the cutest image? And the saying is just perfect to go along with it. I have more cards coming with other images from this set...It is one of my very favorites...You guys have got to run over to Kristin's Blog and/or Shop and see what precious, adorable, elegant images she has there. I swear I think I have almost all of her images...And I cannot wait to ink them up...It just about takes no thinking when trying to design around these cuties, because it just falls together.

I used miscellaneous paper that I bought from Michael's. Stamped this deer on DP from Michaels. I used the Nestabilities Labels 1 (I think). Colored with my Copics. Found a leaf that I bought from WalMart and used a Dress It Up glittered button to glue it down on the card. I used Nestabilities Labels to put the sentiment on. Martha Stewart leaf punch and flowers from Hobby Lobby. I also used my corner punch to round off the layers and give this a softer look.















Here is a closer look at the flowers and leaves. If you click on the pics, I think it will show up bigger so you can see the deets.

















Thanks for your visit...I cannot wait for you to see what I have coming up...I have had the MOST fun with Kristin's images

I came by your house today, but you weren't there. I then went by work, but you weren't there either. I was going to see if you wanted to go get a frozen yogurt. Oh well we can do that anytime.

I love your deer friends card. Such a work of art. Very cute.
