Very MERRY Christmoose!

Happy Weekend!!!

So excited that it's time for the...

There are some FABULOUS sponsors as there are for every hop! Ginormous kudos must definitely go to Amy & Chaitali (& the fab new design team!) for putting everything together and some amazing inspiration!

I combined forces and am also playing along with MFT's Sketch #258 for card!

I can't get enough of this sweet moose! This was the image that colored up the other day (that was too big for last week's sketch!), but just right for this week's!

Merry Christmoose!

I stamped the hot cocoa mug in the same set in Versamark ink, and colored them with colored pencils. I then inked the edges with white pigment ink (Hero Arts Unicorn White). The moose scene is colored using Copics, & I topped the tree off with some Wink of Stella!

Off to do (hopefully) finish off some more Christmas shopping and settle down with a big cup of coffee later to do some hopping!

Holly Jolly Elfy Holiday!

It's time for a new challenge at Tiddly Inks!

Things are starting to get a little more festive around here! (now that there are finally more healthy people in my house than sick- I was outnumbered for a week!) and I've managed to start decorating my house little by little... hoping to pull out the tree today!

Anyway, on to the new challenge, this week's challenge is HOLLY JOLLY!

I used the new Elfy Holiday image for my card...

Holiday Cheer

I LOVED coloring this image- it was so much fun with all the gifts, and of course because it's Wryn and I *LOVE* her! I matched her with some patterned & glittered papers and added some stickles to some wood veneer embellies!

I'm also tossing this into Virginia's View's *last* (hopefully not really the last) challenge, because I really haven't played enough to have it be over! - All about Glitter!

Hope to see you join in the challenge- Check out all the details on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog!

ChristMOOSE Hugs!

Happy Saturday friends!

I'm slowly finding more time to get crafty since everyone in my house has been sick the last 2 weeks! (yuck!)

But after getting the Merry Christmoose stamp set from My Favorite Things I couldn't WAIT to get that adorable turtleneck wearing moose onto a card! & he was just a perfect fit for this week's new sketch challenge (#257)!

I had colored up a little scene the other night (you may have seen it on my Instagram) but my circle piece was too big for the sketch!  So here is what I did instead...

Moose Hugs

I stamped the stockings from the set (the mini star is from You're Super) in a random pattern in Versamark ink and highlighted them with a white colored pencil. Oh! I also pulled out some white Fun Flock for the brim & pom pom on his hat. & topped off the Christmas tree with some clear Wink of Stella!

Off to put up the Christmas decorations... Happy weekend!

November Birthdays

Happy December!

A little late to share these, but thought I'd pop in to share some cards I made for my nieces- they're both November babies!

Well, not really babies anymore... this was for my now *SEVEN* year old niece!
November bday girl

 She was "Where's Waldo" for Halloween this year and she just loved her costume and I thought this sweet girl from The Greeting Farm's Secret Santa kit was a perfect match with her striped hat!

& this one was for my *TEN* year old niece!

Happy SuperGirl

I also based this one off her Halloween costume, she was SuperGirl and because she's really been getting into superheroes this year too! For her card I decided to use the You're Super set from My Favorite Things, and the sentiment (both the diecut and and the stamp) are from Winnie & Walter- Happy cutaway & The Big, the Bold, & the Happy.

Thanks for stopping by!
