After last weeks' heat it's Christmas on my blog today. 

This time I am sharing some inspiration for the new challenge at 

We are always anything goes these days but there is an optional theme of 

Not just Rockin' any Christmas animal.

Here's mine...

 That wonderful moose is from a Sugar Pea Designs set that is sooooo old it's yellow!! I bought it years ago and never inked until now. I was amazed to find that it's still available. I coloured him with Promarkers and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the same set. I also found a whole collection of Couture Creations snowflake dies that I'd never opened, so used them too, making the most of snippets of smooth card that I'd printed digis on to. Oh and the paper was another from The Range last year. I liked this design so much that I made another that I will share another time.

My Christmas prep is coming along nicely, the card pile is growing and I was gifted the 2021 Christmas kit from Cotton and Twine last year that I am currently cross stitching (it's still available if you're interested...just saying!!). I always make my work colleagues a little gift so I am also cross stitching snowflakes in a 3" hoop. 

Anyway, thank you for stopping by and letting me chat!! Looking forward to seeing your Christmas animals.

See you soon xx

Super card Sarah! The look on that moose's face is so fun! Isn't it, it is and it isn't I suppose. I now keep all my new stuff in baskets (plural) until they have at least one use! Then they get put away into their permanent homes - possibly never to see the light of day for years!

So cute, Sarah. Love that sweet Moose. The snowflake background is gorgeous and really pops on your beautiful papers. I've been meaning to get a large snowflake die. Now I'm inspired to start looking again :-) Big hugs!

I really like this design, too, Sarah, and the beautiful nontraditional colors of the pp! (I LOVE plaid, but rarely use it. Go figure!) Of course, Mr. Moose steals the show!! Thank you for sharing and inspiring everyone at NBUS! I'll bet it was exciting to see how well that old yellowed stamp inked up. Hugs, Darnell

This moose may be old, but he sure is cute! Love the sweet soft coloring and that lovely doily.
