Amber Ink Project #1

Hi everyone! Here's my first project for my run at Amber Ink :) Isn't that baby deer just darling?

When I saw this deer as one of the digital images on Amber Ink's site, I knew I had to get it, and then the adorable sentiment? In the cart, too :) And the sentiment only cost .50!

See these totally AWESOME flowers? They were handmade by my friend (and torch passer) Suzanne. She actually poured them into molds and made them perfect matches to PTI colors. She also made me a WHOLE bag of them to go along with my b-day gift. Thanks, Suzanne!

I used PTI's Half & Half Die down the middle, I also used the largest SU circle punch and then cut in in half to appear that the circle was very large behind the deer.

Here is a close up of the neat patterned paper I used. Guess what? It's ipaper that I printed right off my computer! Amber Ink has tons of them to choose from and you can't tell that I printed it in the slightest.

This first project was a blast to make. You probably saw a few days ago that I made a manly card with the deer from PTI's Forrest Friends on it and the sentiment said "Thanks for being such a deer." Click here to check it out. Well, I'm actually going to give this card to the wife and the other masculine card to the husband as a thank you for a wonderful day of little birthday surprises that they were both in on...cute, huh? All the supplies are listed above except the pearls which are SU, and the cardstock which is all PTI. The little banner I just made but cutting the ends at an angle.

Well, off to work. We made it through Irene just fine, but yesterday they were working on cutting down some trees and some how cut off our power...all day with no power yesterday left for some pretty kookie seniors. And now we're hearing it won't be on again until FRIDAY at 10pm!! This is going to be a LOOONNNGGG week!
