Merry Christmas

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built and this week it is a fan favorite: Anything Goes!! And here is the card I created for your inspiration:
It's been too long since I have made a Christmas card, so the Anything Goes challenge was the perfect opportunity to make one.  Isn't this little moose the cutest?  I got him a while ago and this is the first time I have inked him up.  It definitely won't be the last time!!  He's so adorable.  I kept this one simple, but the pattern of the patterned paper gives it a real pop!
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the House blog to see the rest of the DT's creations and then get inky and play along with us.  And if you need any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your ENTIRE order coupon code over in my left sidebar.

I love this little moose with the Christmas lights. I have a chemo buddy that lives in Moose Jaw Sask. Canada ad I sent him a card using this image last Christmas. Your coloring of the moose is great and love the pattern paper you used. Another one for your Christmas collection.

Donna said...

This is so cute, and your coloring is fabulous! I need to start on the Christmas cards while I'm at home so much.

How splendidly cute and festive! I've always really, really enjoyed moose themed Christmas creations, decor, art, etc and find that my interest in such things only deepens with each new holiday season that rolls around (no doubt part of it is because I'm Canadian :D).

Oh he is adorable. You've done a lovely job on your card, and your little moose is colored beautifully. Your stamped holly in the corner is the perfect compliment. Thank you for joining us at Stick It Down--Sharon DT

A lovely card Heather. Really made me smile.

Please bear in mind I only allow a total of 10 challenges with your snippets make - that keeps it fair for others who often only enter one challenge at a time. Thanks!
