Merry Monday 254:




Happy Monday all!  I hope the weekend was good to you!  I am SO ready to get my nose packing gauze removed tomorrow.  I cannot wait!!!!!!

This week at Merry Monday, Lori would like us to create a MOOSE on our Christmas card.  Please also note that this is our last challenge for the summer, although you should check out our blog as we have a fun little 'side' challenge going on.






For this challenge I knew I wanted to go with a traditional ceramic moose mug theme.  It's funny what the brain can come up with =)  

I heat embossed my moose, coloured them with Zig markers, and then die cut my little cups out.  With the mugs being so soft coloured, I didn't want my background to be overpowering, so I found some soft watercolour pattern paper.  

After my card was all put together I realized there wasn't too much "Christmas" about my card.  Oh well - Christmas does not always have to been green and red =)
