Oh, Deer!

     Today's card utilizes an image from one of MHK Designs' new releases and I think it's a perfect masculine card.  Hopefully, I'll have another card card this week featuring another deer but you'll have to wait on that one.  No more hints.  :-D


     I used my ProMarkers to color the image and used one of my Darice embossing folders on the background.  The sentiment is also part of that same MHK set.  I added the bow and pearl for simple embellishment.

     We managed to get the costumes finished which was a real feat considering sewing machine problems with 3 different machines!  We worked on them until midnight last night and the girls finished the last piece of one costume early this morning.  If they get some good photos, I'll share them with you later.  I'm really proud of my granddaughter and her friend about how quickly they have progressed with their sewing.  It's been fun teaching again.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Such a gorgeous image and surrounded by his natural home, mountains and trees. Lovely card, Connie. Can't wait to see the pictures of the costumes. Sounds like your grand daughter is as talented as her grand mother and her girlfriend as well. Hooray for them.
