SU Christmas Deer

SU Christmas Deer with Christmas Cheer

I am cutting it close but I just loved the layout at Pals Paper Arts # 177  so I had to play along with everyone this week.

There are so many deer around my house lately that I figured why not put one on a card? I used the pretty retired SU Christmas Deer. I sometimes get a little crazy with large solid stamps because they sometimes do not stamp completely for me. Any hints on using them are welcome! Anyhow, close up, this one has a bit of a fuzziness to it but I loved it on my deer- I mean he is covered in fur, right? I also love Houndstooth prints on paper and embossed but it can look perfectly straight and then look whacky at certain angles especially when looking at photos on a computer with readers on!!! Ah, the fun of being over 40! Well, I suppose it is time to show my card:
