The Little Deer

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog.

I chose the title for this card as it reminds me of  my hubby's Nan.  I knew her from the age of fifteen.

  She was the sweetest person and very special to me.  She used to say it when referring to babies, dogs, cats and even the birds feeding in her garden (the spelling of cause would have been dear).

The image is a Hobby Art  stamp and was dug out of a box of numerous stamped images that I'm trying to use up.

It was cut with a Nellie Snellin die and the heart was punched  from the kraft circle.

The papers are from my snippets box and the flowers were punched from the strip of paper then shaped from behind.

I am popping over to join in at Pixies Snippets Playground - Weeks 269 & 270
I would also like to join in at   The Cuttlebug Mania Challenge - It's a Zoo Out there

Very sweet card, and the choice of colours makes it a very calm and restful one too, so it would be ideal to send to a friend who is unwell or going through a tough time

What a dear little deer!! That Nellie die is a blast from the past which I have lying unused amongst my many (too many) dies - one of the early ones I bought I seem to remember way before they became so elaborate and detailed.

Lisa Andersson said...

This is so adorable, Barb! The dear is so cute. Lovely details with the flower panel and the little heart and the flowers. So perfectly put together.
Hugs, Lisa

Beautiful floral paper which is just perfect for this darling card, Barb! Very clever to cut the heart from the hidden part of the kraft circle--never think to do that!

This card has to be a winner for me - I am such a big fan of Hobby Art and already have this stamp set, so it is a little reminder for me to find it in my stash and use it once again. I will be inspired by your lovely soft colouring. Anne x
