Merry Christmas Deer


Happy Monday! This could just be my most extreme snippets card ever. The stamp is from Papermania's Festive Frolics and I have had it for ages without ever opening it!

 I have done some paper piecing with an old, bent piece of Baked Brown Sugar dsp. It was languishing in a plastic wallet where the old snippets go. The deer's pink ear was even better. That was made from a snippet that had already gone to Binbag Heaven, but I dug it right out! The snippet of blue card stencilled with stars had been put to one side because it had been wrong in some way. The sequins weren't snippets of course, but they took on a kind of honorary snippetdom when I dropped the whole pot on the craft room floor...

My deer is trotting through the gates of Pixie's Snippets Playground. Her nose is in the air because she's sniffing out where the hidden whisky still is :-)

She's also off to Animal Friends Challenge - Woodland Animals, and my second visit of the week to CHNC#247 - P is for paper piecing! I'd also like to enter CHNC Extra - September.

There are some gorgeous DT cards over at CCNS#103 where the theme is deer season - a whole herd there to trot off with!

Happy Crafting! April x
