I Really Moose You

Thanks to Instagram I learned about a new (to me )challenge, the Cupcake Inspirations blog. They use a cupcake image to inspire and theme or color palette. This week the theme is plaid so of course I had to make time to play along. I LOVE plaid!

My friend Susan lives a few hours north of me in North Pole Alaska and she is an amazing photographer. Every year she puts out a calendar and we trade services....I send her a large pkg of cards for one of her calendars. I'm finishing up the card for her and pulled out some retired green plaid DSP to make some moose cards. These were so simple to make but I just love how the card came out and I know she will love them too. We've got about 4 ft of snow in my part of Alaska and we have moose all over right now. They come down to the lower elevations for food and to escape the deep snow by walking on the roads or established trails in the area.

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I'm so glad you found us. This is such a fabulous card! Living in Alaska must be incredible, especially being able to see all those gentle giants. I'm glad you linked it up to this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge and WELCOME!

  5. What a super fun pun! Love the green plaid as it gives such a forest feel to the card! So glad you were inspired by this week's plaid challenge at Cupcake Inspirations! Hope you will join us again for our new challenge starting tomorrow!

  6. Well I am so glad you found Cupcake Inspirations. I have been following you on Instagram for so long it only seemed natural to see your design linked up to our challenge blog. Didn't realize this was your first time sharing with us. Please, please come back and play again. Your plaid design was really fantastic. And with all your moose sighting videos on IG, I expect nothing less from you than a really amazing moose design. Thank you for joining us this week at Cupcake Inspirations.
