Merry Christ-moose!

Pin It

Another Christmas card completed! This is another image that I have loved for a long time and never before got the chance to use. I’m so glad I finally took the time to color this cute moose. I enjoyed coloring him and trying to figure out how to color the lights so that they look lit.

Sorry to hear your recovery is going slower than you'd hope. Hoping you're back up on your feet soon.
Love your adorable card. You did such an amazing job with the coloring, and those little lights really do look lit up. Fabulous layering and stitching, as always. I love the embossed background and the sweet polka dotted ribbon, too.
