Pretty pearls for a pretty deer...


Please scroll down or click here for my CASE Study Blog Hop entry, thanks! :)

Hey!

Happy Friday! It's practically the weekend - woo hoo! Although I'm on my holidays, I still really treasure the weekends! :)

I'm participating in yet another hop today - it's hopping mad this week on the blogeroo! The Craft's Meow and Want2Scrap have joined forces to host a fabulous blog hop today and I'm so happy to be a part of it!



You should have hopped here from my TCM buddy, Jen Cuthbertson. If you haven't, you'll want to start here for a full list of participant and to start from the beginning. 

As part of the TCM DT we were sent some gorgeous goodies from Want2Scrap to play with. I couldn't resist an idea that popped into my head as soon as I set eyes on some gorgeous adhesive pearls:

hello deer

I stamped the deer from my set, Oh Deer along with a the punny sentiment and embellished this sweet deer with pearls for her markings! The pearls are actually from a sweet frame/flourish, but I snipped out a section of the design to fit this deer. :)

I think I best keep it short and sweet today as there's a lot of hopping to be done! It's worth hopping and commenting because there's prizes to be won from both companies (the deadline for comments is Sunday!) Your next stop is my fellow TCM Teamie, Lindsay Amrhein - enjoy!

Thanks so much for hopping on by here today!

Catch ya later!
