Oh Deer!!

I have been playing with my baby reindeer deer stamp. It's such a cute image! I don't think it's limited to  Christmas/holiday theme only.  I was inspired by this gorgeous card by the uber talented Lisa Spangler (see here). Those blings (aka gems) are simply magical!  I find that the deer image can be suitable for "you are special" type of cards. Like this one...
you're special
After I made that colorful one, I decided to make another deer card with soft-colored palette!
sweet wonderful You
See!? Same deer with different color combo and design!  It sure give you different feel to it, huh? Did I stop there? No, here's a Christmas card inspired by Jennifer McGuire's Thinking Inking class (see here).
believe in the magic of the season
Which one do you favor? I still can't decide....oh deer!

Of all these that you've shown here, I find the typical holiday one is one that I favor the most, perhaps the color or the muted tone? But that doesn't mean the other two cards have a fantastic concept and even neater design! Well done!

I like them all! So pretty! Love the rhinestone antlers! I like how they all have a different color scheme!
