deerie me, it's almost December.

'tis the season, deer.

Have you taken out any Christmas decorations yet?  I know most Americans wait until after Thanksgiving (ours was back in October).  I usually like to wait until early December, but that doesn't stop me from ogling new decorations.

My husband is appalled that I have my eye on this, from Target:


or this one, from the WFT shop (Etsy):


Until I can talk my husband into letting me buy one of these beauties, I decided to whip up a stag-inspired card:

'tis the season, deer.


I stamped the entire card base with the oh-so-cozy "fair isle backgrounds" from Wplus9.  The reindeer was isolated from *this* silhouette file.  The scarf was hand-drawn using a copic multiliner and stamped with the cutest tiny greeting.

'tis the season, deer.

And glittered antlers never hurt nobody.
