deer friend

Hello!!!

Hello, my name is Amy and I'm addicted to card sketches & challenges.

One thing I'm trying to do is design a card 'all by myself', well kind of....

In an effort to challenge myself, I'm trying to do one post a week without the help of a challenge or sketch. I know...can you believe it? LOL...I am however going to have the help from bloggie land. I absolutely soak up TONS of inspiration from blogs and will use that very inspiration to help me design cards.

Okay, so today's card has been inspired by the lovely work of Kelly Booth. I adore her sense of style {and her love of owls!}. Hopefully I have given her the justice that she oh-so-deserves...that woman is fantabulous!

This is a special card...special because it is going to a new 'deer' friend....

Paulina of Pretty Pink Posh!

I won her generous Cuttlebug blog candy!!!

This is my first card that I made using MY NEW CUTTLEBUG! wooo hooo...that puppy is small and snappy. Can you tell that I used the Swiss Dot folder on the 2 layers of 'grass'? I ran my scallop circle through the ole CB too. All the patterned paper is ala Cosmo Cricket Earth Love Mini Deck {thanks Tami!}. I used my sweet Hero Arts deer, the porcupine is from My Cute Stamps and the sentiment is ala A Muse.

Paulina, I hope the card makes you **smile**

Thanks soooo much for stoppin' by, I do appreciate your fabbie comments :)
