Deer in the Snow with Pines

Here's this week's Merry Monday #49 sketch to make a Christmas card.

This is the card I came up with. It's a bit on the masculine side, but we have several friends who are widowers, so this will be perfect for them. I used 2 deer from the MB deer trio die, and placed them behind a pile of stickled snow.

Speaking of snow..........there's more on the way for PA tomorrow night and again over the weekend. I think we should ignore that groundhog tradition they put so much time and effort into every year! What does an oversized rodent know about weather anyway?? LOL

Stay warm and thanks for stopping by!

Ooh, I love your card and the pine needle border die is awesome. The stickled snow is perfect for your deer. Great card, Carol.

Rodents apparently don't know a thing about weather. Your comment gave me a laugh.

I may see a few flakes of snow Saturday...very few, I'm sure. :-)

I would think y'all were getting just a little tired of snow by now! Bring on spring!!

This is so pretty and yes, it'd be great for a guy - or anyone else for that matter! Beautiful!
