Deer Crossing

Hi!  Kim from Katydid Cards with you today! I'm always happy to be sharing an Eyelet Outlet project with you.

Relatively new in the Eyelet Outlet store are the Prancing Deer Brads.  I paired them with the Deer Brads and the Sun & Cloud Brads to make a card which I hope brings a smile to the face of its recipient.  I have to admit, it makes me smile; but then I always crack myself up with my own silliness.

I made the winding roadway by tracing some free clip art I found.  It's two layers, the white "lines" peeking through the opening in the black layer.  I placed that on the hills of three shades of green.  The hills are just circles and ovals, cut to fit the card of Soft Sky cardstock.  The Deer Crossing sign was also clip art which I converted to a print and cut.

Then came the fun part when I got to place the deer on the side of the road...and Simon making his own rules.  This brings back a fond memory of my Dad saying (every single time we saw a deer crossing sign), "I wonder how the deer know to cross here?"  He'd laugh at his own joke every time...now you know I came by it naturally.  We would just roll our eyes.

And the one deer comments Simon's errant ways, saying how he "buck's the system".  See what I did there?  Dad would be proud!

Inside, a sentiment to continue with the theme.

Another "animal" brad I particularly like is the Chicken brad and now the store has the companion Rooster brad.  If you missed it, here's a card I made using both.

Thank you for visiting with me today.  I love you all "deerly" ;-)
