Moosing You

It's my last week of vacation and I finally had some time to stamp and play along with challenges, woooohooo! Hopefully 2015 brings me even more crafting time (fingers crossed).

I had visitors in my yard Sunday and these 2 inspired me. I was really surprised to see them as once again Alaska is having a crappy winter with above normal temps and below normal snowfall. Usually when we don't have much snow the moose stay further up in the hills. I was very glad to see this mama and her calf and I must have stayed outside for over an hour taking photos and just watching them. Mama wasn't bothered by my presence but baby was very curious and at one point I had to retreat back towards the house because baby was headed straight for me. I have no desire to get mama mad at me! One must always keep a safe distance from the wildlife (which many tourists don't seem to understand, but that's a whole other post!).

The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches. Instead of the circle I popped up my moose in that spot and then I added some sequins because the white space to the right of the moose was really bugging me.

SugarPea Designs is having an "anything goes" challenge so this sweet moose and his winter greeting of "moosing you" was perfect for the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
