Oh By Golly...

Good morning, or almost afternoon.  I have a Christmoose card to share with you today that I made with some of my new Cottage Impressions stamps from The Scrapping Cottage.  This one focuses on the adorable Moose with Lights stamp, and was colored with my Copics.  Still no video for you, and I'm sorry about that, but on a happy note, I do think I have my Flip camera battery problem solved, and it seems that this may be a problem that a lot of people have, so now at least I don't feel quite so bad.  Hopefully things will settle down a bit, and I can crank out a couple of videos for you in the next few weeks.  We've sure had our share of excitement since Thanksgiving, and speaking of excitement, little Max and his mom got to come home from the hospital yesterday!  Yay!!!  They're back at the doctor's office today to have his billirubin levels checked.  He was a little jaundiced, and had to have a billi blanket for a few days.  With any luck, today they will take that away, and we won't have a glo baby anymore.  :)  

So back to this cute card, I stamped Mr. Moose with Memento ink and colored with my beloved Copics.  This large image is great to color, but calls for a larger card, so I made this one 6x6.  The patterned paper comes fromBasic Grey's Jovial collection, and I did some hand stitching with twine around the panel behind the moose.  Plaids and stripes are used together on this, and I love the look, although I would NEVER go there myself!  LOL!!!  The fun and fantastic sentiment for this card comes from Peachy Keen Stamps, and is included in the PK-332 Peachy Keen Stanta Set.  I've been working away on some Christmas ornaments using the acrylic and chipboard ornaments from PKS, and I should have those to share with you soon.  If you haven't been to the PKS website, you should go and check out the amazing give away they're sponsoring this month!  You won't believe it when you see/hear about it!  It's AWESOME!!!!!!
 Below is a picture of little Max from this morning before he left for the doctor's office.  We just HAD to capture this adorable Elmer Fudd hat complete with fuzzy ears, which you can't see in the photo.  He's such a sweetie, and we're so proud of him!!!
Wishing you a blessed day and weekend and of course, happy stamping!  

Love ya,

Oh by golly is right! He is just the most adorable thing. The twins have the same hats and they totally crack me up when they wear them.

Love your card too - as always. I am so looking forward to life slowing down and being able to spend some time with paper and pencils. Never ever thought I would miss it so much...
