This is one design I think will stick with me for a long time, I love everything about it, colors, splatters and the fact that you used a reindeer. I don't think I've used one for anything but Christmas projects myself.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Deer and splatter! That's a great combination and makes a fine masculine card. I like this deer.

Donna said...

Charming masculine card Kitty! Like the deer and splatters! I'm with you, masculine cards are difficult. Have a wonderful weekend!

This is a great masculine card, Kitty. I love blues and browns. If I sent this to my grandson he'd already be counting the points on this buck.

Wonderful CAS design and love your inking. We are so blessed of your joining our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and hope you'll join us again in the new Challenge that started today. Leaving you with the encouragement from God's Word in 2 Timothy 2:10 which says, "For this reason I endure all things for the sake of those who are chosen, so that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus and with it eternal glory."
