Merry Moose for Jingle Belles and FMS

Today's card combines 2 challenges.....the first one is the Jingle Belles challenge, which is to include some type of living creature on your card. What other creature would I use but a moose :0) I sure love my moose and to really get this moose in the spirit I added some Cherry Cobbler bakers twine to its neck along with a jingle bell. I tell ya, when you have fine motor skill issues that is NOT an easy task, but I sure do like how it looks!

The sketch at Freshly Made Sketches was the perfect way to highlight the moose, its a great sketch brought to us by Narelle. I was just going to do the one circle, with the moose on it, but I like how the lacey circle highlights the smaller circle.

Thanks for looking and I hope everyone is having a great start to the weekend! If you are on the east coast be safe, I hope you are taking necessary precautions ahead of the large storm on the way!
