Merry Monday- Ready for Christmoose?!

Hi! I'm feeling a bit giddy right now! I am finally finding time to resume playing along with challenges again!! I've always enjoyed the fun of coming up with an idea based off of someone else's suggestions.  When I saw the challenge at Merry Monday Christmas Challenges was 'use a moose', I knew I had to dig out one of the cute moose images I had!  

The stamp is from Riley & Co, but I don't remember what it was called, sorry!  I colored Riley and his penguin friend with markers and added a little crystal effects to the earmuffs and scarf.  A little snow-tex was added to the 'ground' to complete the scene.  I also managed to use one of the wooden snowflakes that I've had for some time.  I covered it in white craft ink and then covered it with dazzling details for some added sparkle! There is also a hint of pastels on the background to create the sky.  Not a super complicated card, but I had a lot of fun playing with some supplies that have been neglected for some time!

On a personal note, I can't believe that June is almost over and that means Christmas will be here well before I'm ready!  Good thing the Merry Monday ladies helped me get an extra card added to my very small pile of completed Christmas cards!  If you get a chance, be sure to visit their challenge site and see all of the super cute moose cards, or even better, make your own super cute card and join in the fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
