Not A Creature Was Stirring....

I was so happy to see this weeks challenge over at the Jingle Belles blog....Not A Creature Was Stirring.

We have been waiting all year for October ... the month that celebrates creatures, costumes & characters ... to schedule this prompt. Your creature might be an animal ... a mouse ... a bird ... a robot ... elves ... snow-persons ... or yes, even a monstah ... just have fun with it ... you can see we did.

I love Christmas, I love animals and (obviously) I LOVE moose! Moose are one of the best things about living in Alaska and I knew I wanted to make a Christmas card with a moose on it. I based this card on a previous moose card I had made, and just changed the scheme to a Christmas one. I must say I am really happy with the way it came out. The Frostwood Lodge DSP in the SU holiday mini was perfect for this card.
Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Pines, sentiment from unknown company
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Frostwood Lodge DSP
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler ribbon, sponge, dimensionals



  1. Fabulous! Love the moose! If I saw that somewhere other than your blog I would think of you. Wonder why... LOL

    I'm so happy to finally be able to comment on your lovely things. For the last two weeks it said I was blocked. :(

    Take care! Michele

  2. Oh wow YES! You definitely should be pleased with this utterly fabulous and totally beeeeeeeautiful "CHRISTMOOSE" card! I love every single thing about this!!!

  3. so I was glancing through the links in the gallery as I don't have time to look at them all but I always like to pick out between 6 and 10 cards to look at in more detail and comment on. And right from that small thumbnail, I knew this moose had to be yours! SO great! Definitely a trademark of yours I'd say! I'm guessing you have lots of snow already? We just started November with some spectacularly gorgeous weather so it's hard to imaging snow coming yet ;-( but I can hope. Oh, yes, and no moose round here! I adore your Christmoose and there's someone very lucky out there getting this in the post!

  4. Oh, I finally found my back to the moose blog :-) I love that stamp, that's something I need to habe. Your card is a perfect creation!

  5. Love your jolly little Christ-moose ... how fun ... so glad you joined us at jingle belles.

  6. This is sooo cool!! :)Cute cute--perfect Christmas card from Alaska!

  7. Too adorable. The first gift my husband ever bought me was a stuffed Christmas moose. I have a big one and a little one now and I love them. I would LOVE to see a real one! :)
