Whew, I am glad that the Jingles Belles blog now gives us 2 weeks to get our cards done because things have been so hectic for me that I havent had a chance to do much stamping!
The current JB challenge is a sketch challenge from Kirsty Vittetoe and it did throw me off a bit. I sat for a while trying to think of how I was going to bring all the different elements of the sketch together. I finally decided to break out a Cricut cartridge I had bought specifically for the moose, but hadnt used yet. If you've been to my blog before you'll know that I just adore moose and right now the moose are out all over the place because we've had so much snow around here. They come down into the lowlands looking for food and to walk along the roads and railroad tracks, because its easier for them than walking in the deep snow. If you have a moment check out this amazing story of a woman that saved her husband from a moose that was stomping him. It happened about 30 mins up the road from where I live. Moose are beautiful creatures but like any other wild animal can be very dangerous!
I really like the way the card came out, I think I'll have to make another one, or two, of these!
