4th Day of Christmas - Dear Deer are Here...

My parents used to live on the last street in town before a wide open field and then a lake. I always enjoyed visiting them and watching the deer nibbling on hay bales out in the field. It was a natural place for them to play. No one could come there and hunt them so it was a normal occasion to see a mother and her babies eating their fill.


We frequently drive the back way from church to home, through housing that is set in a wooded area. I'm always cautioning the driving teen to make sure to use her high beams because you will often have deer dashing across the road. That would not be fun to crumple the car and hurt a beautiful deer.

Red Lead has the most beautiful Christmas collage sheets, and last time I was at the store I picked up these adorable little plastic deer and teeny bottlebrush trees I've been waiting to play with!

The images used on the front and inside are from the Merry Christmas 37 collage sheet from Red Lead. I love the vintage pictures. The final touch was using the tinsel trim on the edge. It's all ready for packing up in a secret sister package going out this week. Do you think she'll like it?
