Happy Thursday, all! My Christmas card supply is rather low, so even though I have only one moose stamp, I thought I would play along with the Merry Monday challenge this week:
I finally broke down and got SU's embossing paste and stencils and just played around with them on a little piece of Tranquil Tide cardstock I had sitting on my desk....I just did a portion of it, trying it out. It really is fun and easy, and it dried quickly, so I went ahead and used it for my Christmas card:
The card base is some retired Kraft paper, and I also stamped my moose image in white craft ink on Kraft as well, then embossed it with white embossing powder. I used some Chocolate Chip ink to color him in, and Cherry Cobbler for his accessories! Speaking of accessories, the new mini dimensionals are AWESOME for adhering little bits like the pompom on Mr Moose's hat!
I stamped some star images from the same set and added some Cherry Cobbler Double-Stitched Ribbon; the sentiment is from Merry Crittermas, also retired! I think this moose looks a little sad, but maybe he's just cold! Thanks for popping in today!
We went to my nephew's farm to get eggs yesterday; there is always a plethora of cats around and Cassidy cannot wait to play with them. Most of them are black.....
but there's a little Siamese-looking one that somehow popped into the family:
She wants to bring one home SO BADLY, but sadly, Grampy says "no"!!! (Wayne agrees!) So we will just have to get our kitty fix every time we go for eggs!
Enjoy your day and be blessed! Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new As You See It challenge!
