For my card I have used the sweet Standing Deer, who has the cutest look.

Using Kraft card I die cut the deer and coloured using Copic markers. For the deer I used E15, E17, E39, with E49 on his nose and R85 in the ears. For his eyes I used Nuvo Glitter Drops in Golden Sunset.
For my background I am using Neenah Classic Crest card along with a stencil from Simple Stories and Opaque Crackle Texture paste. Once the paste was dry I sponged on the Evergreen Bough Oxide ink which I splattered with water along with Midas Touch Shimmering Pen.

I attached the dry background to my Kraft card base using foam tape.
I then put the deer together and attached it to the card base again using foam tape.

In my mini Misti I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Clair ink in Pinecone. I did not put my stamp on correctly because just as I was closing the door to stamp, the stamp fell off on the left side, being the right side of the paper - and yep, after all is said and done, my sentiment ended up crooked! 
Up next in Hop order is Laura Fulcher. Following is a list of those participating in today's hop.
