Merry Christ-Moose!

I am getting into the swing of my Christmas cards early, as I will be having surgery early next month and so I need to be prepared for Christmas before then. Playing along with challenges helps me to get my cards done quickly, and so today I have combined the Merry Monday and Just Add Ink challenges.


I do not have any moose stamps, but I found an adorable moose banner in my Cricut files, and the card quickly came together in my mind.



I paired this with the tree paper from the White Pines paper packet, and added a sentiment from Holly Jolly Christmas stamped in Fern ink. The sketch also inspired me to add some Fern Twine to the card. I popped the moose banner up on 3D Foam Tape and I was done!

  13. I do like your moose card Lauren, but really I'm saying thanks for the comment you left on my blog. And yes - it's really great to hear from another New Zealander! So thanks for stopping in and saying hi. It looks like we play at some of the same challenges, so I'll keep an eye out for your work!
