As soon as I saw this small Lifestyle Crafts Moose die, I knew it would be right at home in the Attic! Dh loves moose, almost as much as he loves the feline attic dwellers! I think it has something to do with the morning many years ago when he opened our cabin door in Grand Teton National Park, eager to greet a new day and a mountain view. Instead, he found himself looking out under the belly of a moose who was taking a rest, leaning against our cabin door! I remember dh was so excited and so awake. I, on the other hand, was sleeping contently, and not so interested in saying good-morning to the rising sun or the meandering moose. "Good-night, moon" are words I am more likely to whisper into the night time hours.
I recently asked dh why he loved moose so much - he wasn't quite certain, but said they are such elegant, quiet creatures that are also powerful. Perhaps qualities some of us would aspire to have?
This card is rather simple. The background trees are by Hero Arts, a stamp I love for stamping tone on tone - such a soft and subtle background it creates. The birch tree die fit right in w/ the background stamp and I was pleased to use it since it was a Christmas gift from dh - even picked it out himself and found a new online site from which to order! I modified the antlers on the moose a bit, turning them into a pair of ears for the girl. And of course, I had to use more of the Ideology Frosted Film - love, love that film! Here'a close up of the heart's glisten when it's held up to the sunlight.
I kept the inside simple with a computer generated sentiment and a border punch:
Abbey girl has been feeling a bit left out since the Attic is truly hers, and she hasn't been the star feature yet. She is always quite ready for a photo shoot and does her best to be the little helper cat she is known to be.
We've had a lot of snow the last week and between shoveling out and preparing for the next round, not much creative has happened in the Attic except for lots of kitty naps. I'm hoping to share some snowy photos later this week. Until then, thanks for coming to visit us in the Attic today! We so appreciate chatting and sharing with you!
Wishing you a blessed day with moments of fun and silliness along the way,
