My Poor Car...

Some may remember last Christmas that I had my  1st run in (pun intended) with a deer. Unfortunately on the interstate while doing 75mph. I was pretty rattled and let's just say the deer didn't make it. This is the resulting damage. Can you believe they didn't total it!? I can't remember the exact amount but it was close to the amount needed to do so :(

Started with a piece of Core'dinations cardstock and sanded it to tone down the yellow, then stamped on pearlescent paint with some bubble wrap to represent snow.

Used the Cricut cartridge " Joys of the Season" for the glitter snowflakes. Crate Paper patterned paper.

I'm not sure I'm in love with the brackets, what do you think? Should they stay or should they go?
Used another lovely sketch.

Mimi turned 13 yesterday and I had to work :( Thankfully Daddy picked up the slack, She received her 1st cell phone and an I Tunes card. Mommy picked her up some cute earrings to wear with her Halloween costume. Pics of which will be coming soon!

Thanks for stopping, off to babyland :)

Just a couple of days ago I heard on TV that you aren't supposed to swirve but to hit the deer so one doesn't run into other cars... How would one actually react in the situation, who knows eh? Well, the layout is great to document a traumatic experience for you and your car!!!!

Wow! I am so happy that you weren't seriously hurt! I know many people who tangled with a deer, elk or moose and weren't as fortunate! I feel for your poor car though! How great of you to do layout about it though :)
