Yesterday I was just too busy with Thanksgiving cooking, eating, and cleaning up to post on my blog. I imagine a lot of you were doing the same. Today is the infamous Black Friday Shopping Day in the US. (Do other countries have Black Friday Sales? I'd be interested to know. ) I only ventured to 2 stores for BF Specials, the farm store for bird seed and suet cakes, and the craft store for a special gift for my grandson. But I did not go at the crack of dawn. I waited until lunchtime. The stores were busy but the crowds manageable.
With Pennsylvania Deer Season set to start on Monday, I thought I'd use this card for Day 27's theme, Create Something Regional, at Beccy's Place Month of Holiday Cards Challenge.
There are 2 deer, a doe and fawn, that we see regularly in our neighborhood. Monday, when we were watching our grandsons, we spotted the fawn out near the street. The doe was back further in a yard, with her ears at attention, cautiously looking back and forth. Nick was out throwing a baseball against the side of our house, out of sight of the deer, and she could hear it. It wasn't until after he stopped, because he had spotted the deer, that she advanced to the street and she and the fawn crossed. They are beautiful animals.
The deer and tree stamps, as well as the embossing folder, were freebies from a magazine. The die cut is Spellbinders, and Merry Christmas is CTMH.
