I think the first movie I ever saw in a movie theater was Disney's Bambi. I remember little of the actual movie, I'm pretty sure I spent most of the time buried in my mother's arms because during the dark, loud and scary parts. I do remember the spring time scene where all the newer animals found their soul mates and became "twitterpated", the little Thumper's leg going and going...
I had the above love images in my head when I saw this fawn digi image. I reflected him to create a her and slid them close together so that their noses touched, printed them out on patterned paper and cut them out. The colors for the card are derived from The Curtain Call Color Challenge. I'm hoping to hand this out for a wedding or an anniversary-both fine celebrations of life and a perfect fit for May's SRM Sticker Challenge. Inspiration also came from Lucy's lovely baby card here.

I'm pretty sure that today is May 7th. About a month away from summer. I had to think twice after I saw this outside this afternoon. Snow. Snow? Seriously?


  1. OMigosh, Karen, this card is just adorable! I love how your printed the l'il dears on patterned paper ... and their nose-to-nose position is perfect!
