Merry Chris-Moose

How about a non-traditional Christmas card? Maybe it's my age, (been there, done that attitude) but I lean more and more away from red and green. When I finished 'dressing' the moose and mice I decided it needed a brighter/happier background. The glitzy stripes and bright colors seemed just right to me!

The moose and mice are a free digi from Nina's There's Magic In the Air! I popped up the mouse in the Santa hat, the present and the star with a gold thread hanger. Along with the digi, Nina wanted us to help the moose feel warm and fuzzy, so his blanket is blue flower soft, the mice are wrapped up in Stickles along with the present, the star is punched from blue glitter CS and I replaced the Christmas light in the digi with an embellishment I bought years ago when visiting my DD, Kim, in paradise. Be sure to take a look at her take on this challenge, the moose is snuggling inside waiting for Santa to come!

I am also entering this in the following challenges:

* Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! Challenge # 8 to be Touchy Feely

* Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays, Challenge #17 to make a Christmas Theme project.

* Crazy 4 Challenges, Week 13, Punch Happy!

Don't forget to check out There's Magic In the Air for news about the upcoming Blog Hop! Check my sidebar for more info!

Thanks for looking, have a good rest of the week-end and here's to the rush for the upcoming next holiday - Christmas!

Way to break out of the traditional Christmas color box! LOVE it!!! He looks so cozy under his fuzzy blue blanket and the addition of the bead garland just give it such great depth! Thanks for playing with us again at TMITA this week and can't wait to see what you come up with for next week!
