C4C Deer Friend

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this "Deer Friend" image from Memory Box. I had colored a whole bunch of these last week, so I keep using them for all sorts of things other than the Christmas cards for which they were intended. I am sorry to say that ship has sailed. It's New Year's Eve... Today, I used my deer friend for the C4C challenge. I love this sketch.

I am wild about this BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses DP as well. When I was thinking about what to do with this sketch, I ran across a color challenge blog called ColourQ. On the sidebar, you can click on an SU card stock color, and you are linked to color combinations and thus challenges, that incorporate that color. Very cool!! THIS one matched my Eskimo Kisses DP so well, so I used for my C4C creation for this week - Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke, Old Olive, Bashful Blue (I used Soft Sky because it matched the BasicGrey DP more closely) and a neutral. I am happy with the results.
This has been one heck of a year - quite challenging in many ways, for me and for many people I know. Tonight I am hanging out with my guys at home. We'll have some special treats and watch the ball come down. We were in Philadelphia earlier today at Dave & Busters Restaurant/game stop extraordinaire. We stood outside at 6:00 PM and watched a fireworks display on the river - gorgeous and magical. Wishing you peace, strength, hope and joy to you as the journey continues... Happy New Year!
