Deer Friend

Once again, rumors of my demise have been GREATLY exaggerated. I can't believe I haven't blogged all week! Yikes!

The wrist is on the mend, and I'm rebelling against the wrist brace, because now I'm over-compensating for the immobility in my wrist by straining other muscles in my hand and arm, and we all know I don't need any more help messing up my arms and back, am I right?!?!

So tonight I forged on and stepped into The Captain's Quarters to find something from the Heaplet or UFO pile that needed to be rescued. I ended up using a sheet of paper from last year's Sale-A-Bration (SAB) paper pack to make this:

The trees and clouds are already on the paper, so all I did was cut it. I've always wanted to do that - use the patterns on the paper and call it done! Um, but that didn't happen here. Nope - I added the teeny tiny deer to make it a "scene". Isn't it cute?!?! I got it on Etsy from Her stuff is SO cute. I colored the deer with Copics and added the white dots to the back with my white gel pen. The sentiment is from A Muse, and I drew the grass with my Old Olive marker.

I'm kinda loving this baker's twine. I know, I'm late to that party, too. I use it for packaging my Etsy sales, but it's so nice to work with, and it comes in so many colors ... yeah, I plan to begin hoarding it, why do you ask?

I'm going to go back in now to make the other two cards, then move on to something else.

Thanks for stopping by!
