Deer for BBTB2

Over on BBTB2 this week, we were given these lovely little deer stamps from Technique Tuesday to use, together with the flourish 3 cut from the Stretch Your Imagination cricut cartridge (page 77 of the manual).
I decided to use the negative of the flourish, and backed it with coordinating paper.

the paper flowers have a blob of cream liquid pearls in the middle. If you like a challenge, why not have a go this week? Technique Tuesday is sponsoring the challenge, and if you don't have SYI, you can use any cricut flourish on your card

I hope everyone here in the UK had a lovely Mothering Sunday yesterday. I didn't get to see any of my brood, but had lots of lovely cards, phone calls and flowers. Max was with his Daddy when he called me (from a supermarket), and was very busy with his new passion - waving at himself on the security cameras. 'Come and say hello to Ma' said my son 'lello Ma, I wavin at me'
Which made me think.................have you ever gone out shopping, thinking you look rather smart, nice gear on, hair looking good, then you look up at a security monitor and see this bedraggled creature standing there. It isn't until you scratch your nose or something that you realise the sorry looking sight is YOU. A friend of mine once did a dash to the local mall with her daughter, as they walked along, she saw a woman walking towards her, 'look at her' she whispered to her daughter ' you'd think she would have made a bit of an effort before coming out' wasn't until she practically bumped myopically into the mirror that she realised that the woman was her. 'When did I get so old?' she asked mournfully. Incidentally, she isn't old at all, but a fabulous looking woman in her prime. she just caught herself on a bad mirror day...................... we all have them, unless you are 2 year old Max of course.

Melissa said...

Oh Enfys, you just started my morning out with a big smile and a chuckle. Loved reading your comment about Max and the little bit about looking into the security camera to find yourself a mess! lol

Very cute card and sentiment! I thought it would be cute to make a Disney card using Bambi with the same sentiment. I'm always trying to come up with new twists to add to my Disney card collection, so thank you for this!

flowerdisco said...

Enfys, I do not know if you did this on purpose but I like how the flourish and the deer dp blend together on the deer's head. I think is awesome and like the pink too.

Creative Momma said...

Hope you had a wonderful day yesterday..Happy Mums day :)
I love your work ,En it's always beautiful and unique...I would have never thought of using a paper with pattern on it for the deer..learn something new everyday

Margie said...

What a great looking deer, Enfys! Love it's creamy coat! I despise those darn security cameras... no matter how good one looks on that particular day, they always seem to make you appear ragged! Much like the mirrors in a fun house.

Very pretty card!!

cute cute cute...hugs

Really cute card Enfys! Guess what I found on Saturday? The Feb issue of PaperCraft inspirations Mag! I rarely ever go to Michaels, as I find them expensive. But I had a 20% off coupon, so I went. I'm so glad I did! I got a couple of other things too, but that Mag was my fave find, since you have cards in this issue. I had seen a couple of them already, but I love having them within arms reach when ever I want to have a peek again!
Max must be adorable! As are all the grandkids, of course.

freetimegone said...

I love the deer. Made me think of Bambi. Using the negative of the flourish is so nice on this card. I love your story (which I can identify with). Some days I wonder why I left the house at all. Happy Mothering sunday to you yesterday.

Lisa said...

Beautiful card Enfys!!! I love the deer, so sweet!!!



PS: Sunday was the English Mother's day? I missed a bit because of the stomach flu running rampant through my household. Whatever day it was, I hope it was the best for you!!!!

Heather said...

This is so sweet, Enfys! I love how you cut the deer out of patterned paper and i love the use of the flourish. Gorgeous!
