Merry Christmoose

 I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  I traveled a couple hours to spend the day with my grandparents, their health isn't good and I'm not quite sure how much time they have left, so it was really good to see and spend time with them.
I had a very relaxing holiday weekend, 4 1/2 days off of work...YAY!!  Did NO black friday shopping and tried to stay off the roads at all times during this crazy weekend.  Ash was in Vegas with her dad and Steve had to work most of the weekend, so I had alot of alone time.  I don't know about anyone else..but I LOVE ALONE TIME.  I've always thought I would make a really good hermit.  I'm more of a homebody and most of my hobbies are done indoors, and I just sometimes love solitude.  I've considered that maybe I'm just weird...and I'm ok with that!
Ok, enough rambling and on to my card.  I've used SKdigi's Christmoose image.. he's just so stinkin cute! I knew I had to color him up right away.  Look at him..he's too fun!  I really need to work on my coloring though, I am definitely wanting to take a class and learn to color better so images really stand out.  In fact, I'm hoping to take a class from Created from Color, the basic class and work up from there. I've hinted at it for a Christmas present, so I'm crossing my fingers!  Anyway, here is my card, I've used scrap Winter papers, a few punches, gems, the snowflakes were a cricut cut from Joys of the Season cartridge and then the moose and sentiment were from SKdigi's.  I inked around the edges and looks like I got a little carried away with the ink on part of it... :/    ACK!
You still have a couple days to join our linking party over at SKdigis HERE the theme is ANYTHING GOES!
Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!! :)
