A Deer Huntin' Tale

Well, the Deer Hunt starts this weekend in Utah.  My Hubby took me deer hunting before he put a ring on my finger...a wicked test for any women.  I must have done ok, because we've been married for 36 wonderful years; (and I only had to deer hunt for a few of them!)  So, Here is my ode to the deer hunt.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating this crazy poem and card.



  This was a hoot to write and create.  I used Cricut Cartridges: Niftie Fifties for the pickup, and Old West for the shovel and rifle.   Paper is that wonderful Kraft Cardstock along with coredinations, The Robin's Nest, and MME.  Baker's Twine in cappuccino, VersaMagic Ink in Jumbo Java (wow, I use that color a LOT), 2 gold eyelets and my own original poem and sentiment!  Almost 98% of the sentiments and poems I use on my cards are my original work, so if you want to use any of it please contact me first!  This card is being entered in the following challenges:
Well, hope you enjoyed my tribute to hunting.  Glad at this point in life I am home where it is warm! And to any of you PETA members, my most humble apologies! Have a fun and safe weekend!

Cindy, I love your little story. Probably a little frustrating at the time but it's nice that you can look back and laugh together at the situation. Congratulations on your 36 years together.
