Oh Deer!

Good morning.  I'm afraid I'm a day late with my card so apologies to Zoe..  I usually post on the Saturday but this week I didn't get chance.  It's Zoe's turn to choose the theme and her choice is "Reindeer".  I'm not sure that either of my cards count as reindeer - one is the stag's head, and the other is a deer with large antlers but I think it's probably near enough.

Well that's another two cards into my Christmas box.  I'm doing quite well so far and if I keep this up I'll do fine ... lol!

It's a miserable, misty, murky day after the beautiful sunny day we had yesterday, but it's winter still when all is said and done.  Roll on spring.

Take care.


  1. Worth waiting for Christine, two beautifully designed cards, my favourite if I had to choose is the second one with the gorgeous winter scene.
    Pretty much the same kind of morning here,take care Kate x

  2. I like both cards and I think the deer will also do without the 'rein' (LOL!). Over here: also cold and foggy after a bright sunny day.

  13. These cards are so pretty! I am trying to make Christmas cards this year too. I was so disappointed last year when I ran out of handmade cards and still had family members who wanted them . I have decided that I'm going to make Christmas cards at least once a week .



  14. Hi Christine, lovely images. And I'm sure they all count as deer! You have reminded me about crafting cds! I have a few and never think to look there for images. But yours are beautiful. Hugs, Shaz XxX

  15. Love both of your cards Christine and it was worth the wait. Your deer are fab whether Rein or not . Zoe x

  16. Both are just beautiful cards, Christine. I love the stag's head with the red plaid paper. Like the way you've dropped those ornaments along the top too. #2's card is so pretty too, with the winter scene, and the design layout is wonderful to show off this magnificent stag wandering along the road. TFS & Hugs

  17. Hi Christine
    Well. at this time of year you do look out of the window and say "it looks like rain dear".
    Sorry, couldn't resist. Love your two delightful cards.
