TCM:: September Release Blog Hop

A startled stag, the blue-grey Night,
Leaps down beyond black pines.
Behind—a length of yellow light—
The hunter’s arrow shines:
His moccasins are stained with red,
He bends upon his knee,
From covering peaks his shafts are sped,
The blue mists plume his mighty head,—
Well may the swift Night flee!

The Craft's meow

We are gearing up for bow season here in Wisconsin, Hunter's Widows Weekend is fastly approaching too! Welcome to the September Release The Craft's Meow Blog Hop! You should have arrived from Jinny's Blog!

I couldn't resist using that amazing buck silhouette stamp again. This time I stamped him onto a piece of natural birch bark, which was adhered onto white cardstock and a tag. I used a greeting from Autumn Borders and finished it with May Arts Burlap String.

I hope you enjoyed this month's releases by The Craft's Meow! You can find more details on the hop and prizes by stopping by the store blog. Your next stop is Larissa!
