It's been a while since I've written a blog post just for fun. I have been super busy keeping up with all of my design team work, that I just haven't had time to think of anything, but getting blog post written up and scheduled on time. So today, I just wanted to share a few of my Paper Smooches card that I made for the June release and a fun little story!
We live out in the country and our driveway is about a mile long. My daughter and I were walking up the driveway early one morning a couple of weekends ago and we spotted a doe and a brand new fawn just a few feet ahead of us. Luckily we had left all the dogs at home or that wouldn't have happened.
Anyway, we watched from a far and didn't want to move closer and scare them, but all of a sudden the doe, snorted and took off and the little fawn just hit the grown flat as a pancake! It was so weird! Well we didn't want to do anything, because we were hoping the mama would come right back and get her baby, but we waited and waited and she never came back. We were afraid to leave the little fawn laying flat on the driveway for fear that a car might not see it or a dog would get it or something, so we walked up to get a better look at it. It looked like one of it's legs was at a strange angle so, even though I was hesitant to touch it and get my smell on it, I lifted it carefully to get it on it's little feet. Oh my goodness! It jumped to it's little feet and started making the cutest little noises!! And not only that, but it started following my daughter and me around. It was SO sweet, but I knew it was best if it's mama came back and got it, so I told my daughter to run, and we started running up the driveway to get away from it. Guess what?? It chased us just hollering!! I guess it though we were it's mama now!! Oh my! What to do?? So we stopped and let it catch up with us and then we decided we'd better walk it back down to where we found it. We walked up the bank off of the driveway where we saw the mama disappear and stood with it for a while until it lay down in the brush. We left it then, still a little worried. So we waited until after lunch that day, but we were worried about the little guy, so we walked back up to where we had left it. We were pretty disappointed when we saw that it was still curled up where we left it. We didn't touch it, but went back home. When my husband called on his way home that evening, I told him the story, and then when he got home he said he saw the doe right in the exact same spot that I described to him, so we felt sure that she had found her baby, and sure enough, it wasn't there the next morning. I was so happy! It was such a really neat experience!! I was SO sad that I didn't have my camera with me the first time we found it, but I did take it with me when we went to check on it the second time, so I have a picture to share :)
Isn't it precious!! It took all I had in me not to pick it up and smooch it!! haha!
Okay on to some of my cards now!
This one I created with the Gently Seasoned Two and Squeaky Clean stamp sets. Those little bunnies are actually dust bunnies! haha!
And this was was created with the new Notebook Paper Two and Botanicals 3 and a little kitty from Feline Friends.
That's it for me today! I am off to the big city to have breakfast and some shopping with the girl! One of my favorite things to do!
Hope you all have a happy Friday and wonderful weekend!
