Cute Baby Deer - And a FREEBIE

Hiya folks!

How is your weekend so far? Hope all you across the ponders have a great holiday weekend! Obviously we don't celebrate 4th July over here, after all, it was us that you guys separated from! LOL

Last weekend the family and I went to an animal park on the Black Isle. We had great fun stroking all the fluffs, the kids fed everything they could shove their hands at! I took almost 100 photos - trouble is, most of them are naff!! LOL I did get a couple of great shots though, and this little fella was one of them:

Isn't he just toooo gorgeous!! He just stood there in front of Mum looking down the lens at me. Needless to say I snapped away, and just had to go sketch him afterwards. You may get to see Dad at a later date too, maybe even a few other fluffs and feathers! LOL This Baby Deer image is now uploaded into my Delicious Doodles Shop for purchase, should anyone be interested!

I made a card with this image too, following the sketch at MAWTT for my layout:

There is a colour combo at Colour Create, of 'Baby Pink, Peach and Black'. That was a challenging combo I'll tell ya!! Here is the card:

My backing paper is from an old digi-kit by Tinker & Co, named 'Winter Wishes', and the strip in the middle is from a kit named 'Vintage Dressmaker'. I used a MS border punch for the scallops, and put some organza ribbon over it too. My little flowers are made with a punch, with brads for the centres. The two black flowers are also brads, all from the stash. I added some pink dimension paint dots here and there, just to add a little 'something'.

This also fits a couple of other challenges too. At A Spoon Full of Sugar, the theme is 'Animals', and at DU2DS they want to see the 'Great Outdoors'. Hope this will do for that one, LOL.

Oh, and don't forget folks - nip across to my Delicious Doodles Group page on CDAC for my FREEBIE this month. I'd love to see some creations made with the 'Resting Swallows' image!! See you there peeps!
