A "deer" here and a "deer" there

I get to share a couple cards with some fun deer images on them, fitting for Christmas or Winter.
 
 My first card uses some really neat stamps from Flower Soft.  They released a few different silhouette style stamp sets this year and this deer and the trees are from the Winter Wonderland set. I love that they come in different sizes.
 Along with these great stamps, I added some White Flower Soft to my trees and to the ground below the deer to make it look like a wonderful winter scene.  These stamps are silhouette in style so they could be stamped in just black but it was fun to stamp them with some color.
 I added a snowflake punch to my scene. Some white Flower Soft was added to that too along with some brown ink rubbed on the edges and a pearl for the center.
 This card was so fun and so fast.  I pulled out two rolls of paper tape from Recollections along with some new BasicGrey papers. 
 The label shape was cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  I cut the label shape down the center and added in the two rolls of tape along with the stamped sentiment, a Hero Arts stamp.
And for a couple photos...
 Guess where we went this last weekend??? This is the huge ferris wheel at California Adventures. It is lighted up at night and what is cool is the colors keep changing.
And, this photo is from the special lighting ceremony at the castle.  It is so gorgeous to watch the snowy looking lights come on all over the castle.
 
This is Small World, all decorated for Christmas. If you have never seen what this place looks like during the holidays, put a trip on your "must do" list!!! Extremely stunning.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
