Actually - I'm still pretty mad at him about a lot of things - a woman with a coat made out of Dalmatians comes to mind.
After a few years in my childhood of being subjected to these horribly dark and PTSD-inducing movies that masqueraded as cartoons, I realized that Disney must have been a descendant of the Grimms. The horrid, horrid Grimms.
It shocks people that I haven't seen Finding Nemo yet, but I learned at a pretty early age to ask things like "does something bad happen to a fish?" when presented with the latest Disney flick someone is raving about.
What surprises me is that to this day, friends will say things like "Oh yeah, like the main fish's babies are all murdered in front of him by an evil fisherman with a blender in the opening scene, but it's a SUPER cute movie!"
Whatever, people. You are disturbed. I'll stick with the Lego Movie, thank you very much.
But speaking of deer, I have to tell you I am obsessed with the Home for Christmas DSP in the holiday catty. Brian King and I were trying to figure out at convention how to describe the LOOK of this paper. It's not vintage, exactly. Brian said he can see these images on wrapping paper that would have been at his grandmother's house.
But today when I was making this card I realized that it's a very stylish, cool old-fashioned. Not an antique or vintage old-fashioned. A hip old-fashioned. A Dean Martin/Frank Sinatra old-fashioned.
I decided that the card I made would be the card Dean Martin would have made had he been a stamper.

I thought the Happy Patterns mask made sort of a bead curtain look in the background for my little hipster deer. Doesn't he sort of look like he's got a secret? SO adorable.
It's perfect for Cathy's Dare to Get Dirty challenge this week.
And it's so cute I don't think I can mail it out - I just love that little guy. I hope I'm brave enough to use the rest of that paper and just not stare at it until Christmas!
I made a little video for you of this card - it's a really quick project too - this would be a great card for mass production because you get so many deer per page. So if this ends up being my Christmas card, please act surprised.
Speaking of Christmas - don't forget it's time to sign up for my Christmas stamp-a-stack online - it includes the Sleigh Ride Edgelits and the Jingle All the Way stamp set, and there's also a digital only version.
I hope you enjoy this video more than a horrific Disney cartoon. I promise no deer die during this video. Not even imaginary ones.
