Blue Moose

     Today starts this week's challenge at QKR Stampede and our new theme is "I'm Feelin' Blue" so we want to see plenty of blue on your cards.  I used this fun and funky Digi 22301 "Winter Moose"  and Digi 17407 "Thank You" for the sentiment.  I still need a few more cards for saying "Thanks."


Knowing that we were going to be using shades of blue,
I chose these colors from Digitally Sweet.

     The image is colored with  my ProMarkers, then die cut with a scalloped die (Spellbinders) and matted with two plain circle die cuts (QuicKutz).  I also die cut a circle as a mat for the bow and the snowflake charm.  The background dp is from the "Linen Closet" stack by DCWV.   All the papers and CS are new additions to my stash, most of them showing up right around Christmas or the after-Christmas sales.

     The ribbon I used to make the bow (double layer and double loop) came from Really Reasonable Ribbon and is also a new addition to my stash.  My blogging friend, Lynn, sent me the charm a long time back after I saw one on a card she made and oooohed and ahhhhed over it.  Maybe I should send her this card just to say "Thanks, Lynn."  What do you think? 


     Come play with us this week, won't you?   Just grab an image (QKR or any other), use lots of blue on your card, and then enter it in the challenge.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

  20. Beautiful card !
    Thanks for joining us at the crazy challenge blog and good Luck !

  21. Your Moose is rather cute but alas, as a digi, it doesn't meet our Vintage Stamping challenge rules. Rubber, polymer, foam... anything that is hand stamped but NO DIGIS.


I read each and every comment and I so much appreciate the encouragement you give me. Thank you for taking the time to comment.
