Merry Christmoose

This year I'm forcing myself to make time for my crafting, especially since one of my jobs can be pretty stressful. Getting the time to unwind and be creative is much needed for good mental health care. With this in mind I decided to play along with 2 challenges over at My Favorite Things...the Outside the Box challenge and the Ready, Set, Christmas! challenge. Anyone who knows me knows Christmas is my absolute favorite and I also really enjoy the box dies from MFT, so what better 2 to combine?!

It's been a pretty harsh winter here in my part of Alaska and it's been especially hard on the moose. When I was thinking about what kind of Christmas card I wanted to make I immediately thought of the Merry Christmoose set, it's one of my favorites. The theme for the Outside the Box challenge is Cozy at Home so I decided to do a box card with a moose sitting inside, a cup of hot chocolate in his hooves, the tree by the window with presents underneath and his 2 furry little friends close by. My living room is full of moose decorations so a girl can dream about a real moose hanging out in the living room right? 

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my posts about this mama and her twin babies. Mama had a severely injured leg but it wasn't keeping her from moving around. They were hanging out in front of one of the stations for the fire dept I belong to and every day after my regular 9-5 I would go and check on them. On this day mama and one of the twins were hanging out on the snowmachine trail that runs in front of the station.
