CCEE 1806 ~ Something I love ♥

Hi friends!

February is the month that I come up with the challenges
 for the CCEE Stampers and it's been fun so far :)

 Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner,
I thought it would be sweet to show something that we love
rather than make a traditional Valentine's card.

For me, it's hard ...... the list is just too long ♥
 So I decided to make a card with the things that make me happy ...
bright, vivid colors that pop and woodland critters!
Love, love, LOVE!

And something else I love - a good bargain!
I love finding a great sale :)
This stamp set by The Greeting Farm was always on my watch list, then it retired but about a month ago, 
it popped up on someone's destash sale for $4 .... brand new!
I was over the moon ecstatic and so grateful
 to be at the right sale at the right time :)

I fussy cut the deer and made it the focal point of my card.
I also 'fussy colored' the deer - not really giving it a structured look,
allowing myself to be a little freer with the ink 
(hoping for fur but yeah ... that didn't happen! LOL!)

This is also my card for the Crafters of Faith February theme, too.
In fact, our hostess of the COF is Liz, also a CCEE stamper!

She said:  Psalm 42:1 As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God.
Make a card featuring a deer or a scene from a lake or a forest.

Please be sure to stop by the CCEE Stampers blog
and see what the girls LOVE!
You can also play along with this challenge and if you create a card,
use the keyword CCEE1806 so we can find you.

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
