Deer Season...

... I know, a horrible thought! I bike amongst the deer often, and talk to them, so it is always sad to see them go. It's also annoying that I have to stop biking for a while so I don't end up being strapped to a hood as well.

This card uses the ColorQ and Mojo Monday challenges. I'm getting into these challenges. Is it that I need more thank you cards lately, or I am sending more thank you cards because of challenges? Hmmmm.

I brayered the background, used the Big Shot and Texturz Plate to get some wood-looking texture, and stitched a bit.

Stamps: Nature Silhouettes, Thank You Kindly; Paper: Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Sweet Pea DSP, Regals Collection DSP; Ink: So Saffron, Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso; Accessories: Brayer, Sponges, Always Artichoke Seam Binding, Circle Scissors Plus, Texure Plates Kit #4, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread.

Thanks for stopping by!
