A friend noticed.
I didn't even blush, but I did think, "Susan, you are a class-A dork. Meh. There are worse things you could be."
So when my husband noticed tiny yellow bits of paper stuck to my sleeve, I didn't even bat an eye. Of course I have tiny bits of post-it note stuck to me randomly because I just cut a mask for a deer. Have you ever cut a mask for tiny little deer legs? My husband clearly hasn't because he acted like I was crazy or something.
There are WAYYYY worse things than having bits of yellow paper stuck to your sleeve.
As discussed in this post and this post, Clearly Besotted's Woodland Pals set inspired me to work up different ideas for grounding the critters in it. We don't want critters floating around with no gravity, right? The idea for this one came when I noticed the spots on the fawn and the mushroom and remembered this very, very old border stamp from Hero Arts, which I stamped twice here (reversing the direction so the dots didn't line up perfectly, which would have looked weird).
Two observations about this card...
- The sentiment spells dear properly for its meaning, which makes me happy. I don't mind puns, but misspelled words bother me. We're going to pretend that there's a comma after thanks, though. Because there should be. Oh, there should be.
- I like how the deer is looking back toward the sentiment and the mushroom, and the way the three elements form a nice triangle. But please tell me it doesn't look like the deer made a giant, mushroom-shaped "business" in the forest. That's just my English-major mind, right?
