Oh Deer, Oh Deer, Oh Deer, Oh Deer....

Oh Deer, but I may have gotten just a bit carried away with some recent new arrivals (Black Friday goodies...yayyy).

With these lovelies arriving fairly close to Christmas, I wanted to give a few of them some play time; ultimately, I've recreated pretty much one card, altered slightly to fit challenges. Hope you don't mind the 'same, but different'...My theme will be readily apparent, which is why I'll just zing these in quickly.

First up is my tag for the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2104 Challenge, which was inspired by incredibly talented Julie Ebersole's tag from Day 1:

Julie's pretty-in-pink number, with mine below, inspired by her ombre backgroud and gold/white images....



My second card is off to



Third card (theme figured out, right...and obsession duly noted, right)...


is heading for the galleries at TIME OUT #20~CASE Amy Wanford with Your Own Twist and CASology #125 (my sentiment is silver foil paper..,)


Cards #2 and 3, along with "just because" Card 4 



Evidently I'm very happy to have deer in my collection *grin* and some swoon-inducing Winnie and Walter cutaways.

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!

  12. "The same, but different" totally works for me....especially when each creation is fabulous! Talk about the PERFECT pairing with the stag die and the forest/tree embossing folder! Gor-geee-ous inked background - the purple(?) and mauve(?) look amazing!

    I likely won't be doing much blog visiting until after Christmas (major prep for company and last minute tags) so I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Have a blast with the wee ones!

  13. Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the desk...WOW! Your tag and cards are absolutely gorgeous, Carol! The stag is stunning, especially against your inked backgrounds and your embossed card base is perfection!!!
    I happened to see your comment at Tracey's blog...the mat dies are Mama Elephant, and they're called Femme Frames :)

I'm so glad that she 'tweeted' that message to blogland or I would have missed wishing you a very happy and wonderful day that is filled with tons of cake, ice cream and crafty type gift cards!

  30. Deer = Love. And add them to birch trees and it's total LOVE. Those die cut sentiments are pretty spiffy too. And may I take this moment to wish you (spiffy lady) one very belated birthday but happy, happy new year of life!
