Deer Family Christmas card

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? Probably much the same as ours. We do go out for walks and we are still doing our shopping. Other than that it is just staying home and staying safe. 

I have found crafting a bit difficult. Last week I had a focus and a deadline to meet and I managed it. This week it is hard to know quite what to do.  I always start Christmas cards straight away. I have been given lots of lovely old cards and they make gorgeous Christmas cards. So when I can't think what else to do I start making Christmas cards. 


The background is an old card. When I saw it I thought that needs some deer on it. 


This is the Deer Family die set from Creative Expressions. I had the male deer already cut and laying on my desk. I like the pale colour against the background. I had a snippet of the same colour card and I cut the mum and baby to match. 


The sentiment was on the card so I didn't have to add one or cover one up. The snowflakes I added were cut with the snowflake dies that come with the Jane's Trees die set from the John Next Door range. 


I am pleased I have made a start on the Christmas cards. There are always so many to make. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

I hope the rest of the week is kind to you. 

Stay safe and take care. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

You have made a really lovely card using the old one for your background which did indeed cry out for some deer to be added. Hugs Mrs A.

Beautiful card Jackie. Nothing much happening here apart from today I am going for yearly diabetic checkup. Had to do my own BP which seems to be up and down. Don’t know what the outcome of that will be. Take care and stay safe.
